Arizona Cardinals OL Kelvin Beachum active vs. Vikings
The Arizona Cardinals appear to be at full strength for their Week 2 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum is officially active after missing a couple days of practice this week with a rib injury suffered in the team’s Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans.
Since joining the team last season, Beachum has yet to miss a start.
Inactive for the Cardinals are quarterback Chris Streveler, running back Eno Benjamin, cornerbacks Luq Barcoo and Tay Gowan and offensive lineman Josh Miles.
Linebacker Devon Kennard was already ruled out Friday due to a hamstring issue.
As for the Vikings, quarterback Kellen Mond, cornerback Harrison Hand, offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw, defensive tackle James Lynch, defensive end Everson Griffen and linebackers Chazz Surratt and Anthony Barr are inactive Sunday.
Griffen, who went to Agua Fria High School in Avondale, Ariz., was added to the Vikings’ injury report with a concussion on Thursday. ESPN’s Courtney Cronin reports he suffered the injury in a car accident while trying to avoid hitting a deer.
Griffen played 41% of the team’s snaps in Week 1, primarily on passing downs.
The Cardinals take on the Vikings at 1:05 p.m. at State Farm Stadium. Tune to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station for all the action.
