The Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders have announced their inactive lists and there is really only one minor surprise for Arizona.
Running back Marion Grice, who had gotten some first team reps in practice this week, will not dress for the game. This means more of the same in the running game -- lots of Andre Ellington.
Outside of Grice, the list has familiar names: DE Calais Campbell, TE Troy Niklas, LB Glenn Carson, LB Thomas Keiser, LB Desmond Bishop and DT Bruce Gaston.
Campbell and Niklas were never going to play because of injuries. The rest are guys that wouldn't really play even when healthy.
The Raiders will be without three starters. Their inactives are QB Matt McGloin, WR Vincent Brown, CB Keith McGill, FB Marcel Reece, T Khalif Barnes, G Tony Bergstrom and DE Justin Tuck.
Reece, Barnes and Tuck are starters.
Menelik Watson will start at right tackle for Barnes. Jamize Olawale will be the fullback in place of Reece and C.J. Wilson is listed behind Tuck at defensive end.
