Arizona Cardinals left tackle D.J. Humphries and linebacker Devon Kennard are active for the team’s Monday Night Football matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Quarterback Brett Hundley, receiver KeeSean Johnson, running back Eno Benjamin, outside linebackers Kylie Fitts and Isaiah Irving, plus offensive lineman Josh Miles are inactive.

Humphries was added to the injury report Saturday after being limited at practice due to a back injury. He was listed as questionable entering play Monday.

Kennard, who practiced in limited fashion all week, is also active for the first time since missing the last two games with a calf injury.

Fellow outside linebacker Dennis Gardeck is set to play as well after dealing with a foot injury all week. He told reporters this week he was confident he would play and was upgraded to limited on Friday even though Arizona did not go through practice.

The Cardinals on Monday signed practice squad tight end Evan Baylis to the 53-man roster and also promoted defensive lineman Trevon Coley and outside linebacker Reggie Walker to bolster a defensive front hit by injuries to Chandler Jones (biceps) and Rashard Lawrence (calf).

Fitts is inactive for Monday’s contest with a hamstring injury, and while the team signed Irving off the Denver Broncos practice squad, it appears he will not play with less than a week of learning with his new team. Arizona had also already ruled out starting right guard J.R. Sweezy and Lawrence for the game.

It hasn’t been all bad news for the Cowboys this week, as linebacker Leighton Vander Esch is back in the mix after missing the previous four games with a broken collarbone. He was activated to the active roster Monday morning.
