The Arizona Cardinals will face the Cincinnati Bengals almost at full strength, but they will likely be without three starters.
Linebacker Kevin Minter, guard Jonathan Cooper and safety Tyrann Mathieu are not expected to dress for tonight's game. Nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu is also not expected to dress, and he is as close to a starter as you can get without being one.
Minter is nursing a pec injury, Cooper is recovering from turf toe and both Mathieu and Ta'amu were activated from the PUP list this week. They spent the offseason rehabbing their knees after surgery in December.
Cincinnati will have a few more not expected to dress.
They include QBs A.J. McCarron and Tyler Wilson, WRs Dane Sanzenbacher and Marvin Jone, CBs Darqueze Dennard and Lavelle Westbrooks, RBs Rex Burkhead and BenJarvus Green-Ellis, LB J.K. Schaffer, OT Andre Smith and TE Tyler Eifert.
