The Arizona Cardinals got some mixed news for Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks as CB Byron Murphy Jr. (groin) will play, but C Rodney Hudson (knee) is inactive.

Hudson played in the first four games of the season but missed Week 5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite Arizona missing its star center, the offensive line only allowed one sack to an elite Philadelphia defense. Sean Harlow will replace Hudson as the starting center.

Murphy has not missed a game yet this season and recorded a season-high nine tackles, one QB hit and one pass defended in Week 5.

Joining Murphy on the field are OG Max Garcia (hand) and DT Rashard Lawrence (toe).

Garcia was called into action in Week 4 against the Carolina, playing 65% of the snaps after Will Hernandez was ejected and Justin Pugh was injured in the contest.

As announced earlier in the week, RBs James Conner and Darrel Williams, CB Trayvon Mullen Jr. and kicker Matt Prater are all inactive.

Matt Ammendola will take over the kicking duties for the second straight week while Arizona State product Eno Benjamin will be the starting running back.

Seahawks DE Shelby Harris (hip) will be active for the NFC West tilt after being questionable heading into Sunday. Starting right guard Gabe Jackson highlights Seattle’s inactives.

Catch all the action from Seattle on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM at 1:05 p.m.
