The first round pick is battling an ankle issue.

The Arizona Cardinals have released their inactive list for today's game and a surprise is that Robert Nkemdiche will miss the game.

After struggling with a sprained ankle all training camp, the rookie first round defensive tackle looked lost and ineffective in his limited 15 snaps in game one.

Now, he joins a list of Arizona Cardinals that are inactive for today's game.

The rest of the list is not surprising, maybe outside of J.J. Nelson.

It is disappointing that the Cardinals have not been able to get anything out of Nkemdiche.

Also, Cole Toner being inactive means that Evan Mathis is a go, whether it is in a reserve role or starting, we shall see, but that is a positive.
