Kyler Murray, Matt Prater inactive for Cardinals vs. Rams

The Arizona Cardinals will take on the Los Angeles Rams on the road this afternoon and will be missing a few starters. Most notably, quarterback Kyler Murray will not play, meaning Colt McCoy will get the start for Arizona.

But that isn’t all.

Here are the Cardinals’ inactives for Week 10:

Arizona Cardinals Week 10 inactives

  • QB Kyler Murray

  • K Matt Prater

  • CB Byron Murphy

  • LB Jesse Luketa

  • OL D.J Humphries

  • OL Max Garcia

The bad news is Murphy and Humphries are out. That means Josh Jones will start at left tackle. With no Murphy, the pass defense takes a hit. They will rely on Marco Wilson, Antonio Hamilton and Trayvon Mullen at corner.

The good news is that safety Budda Baker, who injured his ankle last week and initially was supposed to miss two or three weeks, is active and will play.

Linebacker Dennis Gardeck returns to the lineup after missing games with an ankle injury.
