The Arizona Cardinals announced their inactives Sunday, and quarterback Kyler Murray is among the six players listed ahead of a matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Murray will miss his first game of the season with a hamstring issue he sustained last week against the Seattle Seahawks.

Colt McCoy will start his fourth game as a Cardinal after he filled in for three weeks in 2021.

Arizona’s other inactives include K Matt Prater, OL Max Garcia, LT D.J. Humphries, OLB Jesse Luketa and CB Byron Murphy Jr.

Humphries’ absence means right tackle Kelvin Beachum will be the only starter on the offensive line active.

Safety Budda Baker is active after he was limited in Friday’s practice with an ankle injury, while edge rusher Dennis Gardeck is available to take the field for the first time since Week 6.

The Rams will also start a backup quarterback as starter Matthew Stafford is on L.A.’s inactives list with a concussion.

John Wolford will fill in.

The rest of the Rams’ inactive players include WR Tutu Atwell, LB Travin Howard, DB Shaun Jolly, OL Alaric Jackson and DL Greg Gaines.

The Cardinals and Rams play Sunday at 2:25 p.m. on Arizona Sports 98.7, the Arizona Sports app and
