The Arizona Cardinals have released the list of players that are not expected to suit up for the preseason opener against the Houston Texans.

We know that safety Tyrann Mathieu and nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu will be unable to play, as they both are on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. Center Lyle Sendlein is also out with a calf injury, which is expected to sideline him for another couple of weeks.

In addition, linebacker John Abraham has not yet joined the team. He obviously will not play.

The two players that will not play as well are receivers Michael Floyd and Ted GinnAccording to Darren Urban, Floyd has a groin injury and Ginn has a sore knee. They are sitting out like as a precautionary move.

This actually will give some younger players plenty of reps, and for players like John Brown, Jaron Brown, Brittan Golden and maybe even Walt Powell, it will might mean a few snaps with Carson Palmer and the starters.
