Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake is active Sunday against the Buffalo Bills after recovering from an ankle injury suffered Oct. 25 in a win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Drake was only sidelined one game, a loss to the Miami Dolphins last week, thanks to a Week 8 bye and quick return from what was reportedly an ankle sprain and slightly torn ligament.

Also active against the Bills are safety Budda Baker (groin), tight end Maxx Williams (ankle) and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (thigh).

The inactives for Arizona against Buffalo include quarterback Brett Hundley, receiver KeeSean Johnson, safety Deionte Thompson, running back Eno Benjamin, offensive tackle Josh Miles, offensive guard Justin Murray and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips.

Baker, Drake, Kirkpatrick, Williams and Thompson (knee) were listed as questionable heading into the game.

Arizona ruled out defensive tackles Phillips (hamstring) and Leki Fotu (ankle), plus Murray on Friday. Murray had started the past three games in place of injured starter J.R. Sweezy, who on Saturday was activated from the injured reserve (elbow).

Fotu went on IR on Saturday, while the Cardinals called up cornerback Jace Whittaker and running back D.J. Foster.

The team also signed defensive tackle Trevon Coley to the 53-man roster from the practice squad to bolster the line with Phillips and Fotu out.

The Bills will be down backup quarterback Jake Fromm, running back T.J. Yeldon, running back Taiwan Jones, offensive lineman Cody Ford and defensive lineman Harrison Phillips.
