Arizona Cardinals special teams ace Justin Bethel active against Indianapolis
He was not among the seven players designated as inactive Sunday.
Bethel suffered a concussion early in the second quarter at Jacksonville last Sunday, and had been listed as questionable all week.
His availability is a bonus for the Cardinals, who rely on him heavily on special teams. He's the No. 1 gunner on the team, and his quickness off the edge has resulted in two blocked field goals -- Week 2 against Detroit and Week 10 against Houston.
Bethel has a team-high 12 special teams tackles, plus he has downed five punts inside the 20-yard line this season.
For the third straight week, the Cardinals' inactives are the same:
WR Brittan Golden
QB Ryan Lindley
LB Dontay Moch
TE Kory Sperry
DE Ronald Talley
G Earl Watford
RB Ryan Williams
Golden, it should be mentioned, is still bothered by a hamstring injury. This week marked the first time he participated each day in practice, albeit on a limited basis.
The remaining six players are healthy scratches.
