GLENDALE, Ariz. — A week after sitting out as a healthy scratch against the Baltimore Ravens, Arizona Cardinals rookie receiver Andy Isabella is active for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Also good to play was cornerback Chris Jones, who entered Sunday’s Week 3 matchup listed as questionable with an ankle injury suffered this week. He was not on the initial injury report Wednesday before he was limited Thursday and Friday.

Safety Jalen Thompson, defensive end Michael Dogbe and offensive tackles Joshua Miles and Brett Toth were among the healthy inactives for Arizona.

Linebacker Ezekiel Turner (hand/hamstring), offensive lineman Lamont Gaillard (knee) and defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard (hamstring) were the injured players not playing for the Cardinals.

Gaillard, who missed the first two weeks with a knee injury, was listed as questionable despite not participating in practice, as was Turner.

Bullard (hamstring) was the only Cardinal already ruled out for the game as of Friday.

Isabella gives Arizona seven receivers to use, though he is most likely to see time on special teams. In Week 1, he returned kickoffs.

For Carolina, quarterback Cam Newton (foot), linebacker Bruce Irvin (hamstring), offensive tackle Brandon Greene (neck) and safety Rashaan Gaulden (groin) had already been ruled out.

Defensive end Kawaan Short (shoulder) and tight end Greg Olsen (back) were listed as questionable.

Olsen practiced in full on Thursday and Friday and will play. Short will sit out.
