GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Cardinals listed recent wide receiver addition Michael Crabtree as inactive for their Sunday 2019 opener against the Detroit Lions.

Crabtree, who is still catching up learning the offense, is joined on the inactive list by backup nose tackle Miles Brown, recent waiver-wire pickup Brett Toth, rookie defensive lineman Michael Dogbe and tight end Darrell Daniels.

Arizona had already ruled out starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert and backup guard/center Lamont Gaillard, eating into their offensive line depth.

Recent waiver-wire pickup Justin Murray and rookie seventh-round pick Josh Miles are active and could be options to replace Gilbert as the starting right defensive tackle.

Linebackers Haason Reddick and Zeke Turner entered the game listed as questionable. Both had been limited in practice toward the end of the week.

However, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury and defensive coordinator Vance Joseph indicated that Reddick, who is a projected starter, would play in some capacity as he continues to get back into the swing of things following meniscus surgery on his knee at the beginning of training camp.

Turner, a backup linebacker and key special teamer, was listed as questionable with a hand injury.

For the Lions, starting middle linebacker Jarrad Davis (ankle) and backup cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin (knee) and Frank Ragnow (ankle) were all listed as questionable.

Backup defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand had already been ruled out with an elbow issue.
