Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Rondale Moore is active on game day for the first time this year, as he will make his season debut Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

Moore missed the opening three matchups with a hamstring issue, but he will add needed depth and juice to the Cardinals’ arsenal. The second-year receiver was listed questionable on Friday after he was limited in practice all week.

Moore played 14 games as a rookie and caught 54 passes, tied for third on the team.

Receiver Marquise Brown, defensive end J.J. Watt, inside linebacker Zaven Collins, kicker Matt Prater and center Rodney Hudson were also listed questionable on Friday and are active Sunday.

Watt tweeted he had his heart shocked into rhythm after going into atrial fibrillation this past week, but he will suit up.

Arizona’s inactives are WR A.J. Green, OLB Jesse Luketa, RB Keaontay Ingram, ILB Zeke Turner, OLB Myjai Sanders, OL Lecitus Smith and NT Rashard Lawrence.

For Carolina, star running back Christian McCaffrey is active despite dealing with a thigh injury this week.

The Panthers’ inactives are RB Raheem Blackshear, CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver, OL Cade Mays, DT Phil Hoskins, WR Terrace Marshall Jr. and DE Amaré Barno.

Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m. Tune in on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
