Cardinals vs. Bengals inactives: No Michael Floyd, but John Brown will play for Arizona on Sunday Night Football

Arizona loses a key weapon in the passing game.

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The inactive lists are out for Sunday Night Football. The Arizona Cardinals will be without one of their biggest weapons in the passing game and also a starting offensive lineman. Receiver Michael Floyd, who left the game last week against the Seattle Seahawks in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, is inactive and will not dress. He scored two touchdowns last week. However, the speedy John Brown, who has also been hampered by a hamstring injury for a few weeks, is active and will start.

Starting right guard Jonathan Cooper is also among the inactives, which is not surprising. He did not practice all week with a knee injury. Ted Larsen will start in his place.

Another rotational player -- defensive tackle Cory Redding -- is also out, which means undrafted rookie Xavier Williams will dress and be active for the first time in his pro career.

Here is the full list:

QB Matt Barkley (who not only will not dress, but also had to run around the stadium barely dressed on a lost bet)
WR Michael Floyd
CB Robert Nelson, Jr.
OLB Shaq Riddick
G Jonathan Cooper
T D.J. Humphries
DT Cory Redding

For Cincinnati, they will be without the man who probably would have covered Floyd, Adam Jones. However, Michael Johnson, who looked like would miss the game on Friday, is active and will play.

Here are the inactives for the Bengals:

WR Mario Alford
CB Adam Jones
LB P.J. Dawson
TE C.J. Uzomah
DT Marcus Hardison
DT Pat Sims
DE Margus Hunt
