Arizona Cardinals WR J.J. Nelson, TE Jermaine Gresham active vs. Dallas
GLENDALE, Ariz. – With a number of family and friends in attendance, not to mention all of the National Football League watching, wide receiver J.J. Nelson will give it a go against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football at University of Phoenix Stadium.
And let’s be honest, the Arizona Cardinals could not afford another offensive personnel loss.
Nelson, the reigning NFC Offensive Player of the Week, was considered questionable having been limited all week in practice with a hamstring issue. But, he’ll be available, as will tight end Jermaine Gresham (ribs), who was one of five offensive starters to miss last week’s game.
Not available for the Cardinals will be dollar linebacker Deone Bucannon and left guard Mike Iupati. Bucannon has yet to see action after offseason ankle surgery, while Iupati continues to be bothered by a triceps injury.
The remaining inactives are wide receiver John Brown, quarterback Blaine Gabbert, running back D.J. Foster, tackle D.J. Humphries and defensive tackle Xavier Williams.
Brown (quadriceps) and Humphries (knee) had already been ruled out.
For the Cowboys, cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) and Nolan Carroll (concussion) plus linebacker Anthony Hitchens (knee) are out due to injury and among the listed inactives.
The others not in uniform for Dallas are offensive lineman and former Cardinal Jonathan Cooper, running back Darren McFadden, quarterback Cooper Rush and defensive end Charles Tapper.
