It's almost time for kickoff between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers here at UOP stadium in sunny Arizona.  Fresh off a bye week, the Cards inactive report contains two starters sidelined by the injury bug.

Hit the jump to find out who won't suit up today.




Sitting for the Cards this game are:

  • FS Kerry Rhodes
  • TE Todd Heap
  • QB Richard Bartel
  • RB Chester Taylor
  • OT D'Anthony Batiste
  • TE Jim Dray
  • DE Ronald Talley

With Heap still hurting, expect to see more of King and Housler. With a week off, perhaps the Housler/Kolb connection made progress. Another blow came with the injury to Kerry Rhodes, which depletes an already short secondary. 

Dray is still out with a pectoral injury. 

Here are the Steelers' inactive players:

  • NT Casey Hampton
  • NT Chris Hoke
  • QB Dennis Dixon
  • RB Jonathan Dwyer
  • G Doug Legursky
  • OLB James Harrison
  • OLB Jason Worilds

Obviously, there's a few big names here that could make a difference. The Steelers' two starting nose tackles will miss this game. Couple that with the absence of James Harrison and Jason Worlids, and the Cardinals should have an effective day pounding the rock.

And no Bartel isn't injured, rather John Skelton is healthy. What does that say from the front office on what they see in Skelton?
