The Arizona Cardinals will be down their top three cornerbacks Sunday against the Denver Broncos, as Antonio Hamilton, Marco Wilson and Byron Murphy Jr. landed on the inactives list before kickoff.

Murphy Jr. was already ruled out for a back injury that has kept him sidelined since Week 9. Hamilton and Wilson were questionable entering Sunday.

Wilson (neck) was listed as limited in practice all week — including on Wednesday’s estimated injury report — while Hamilton (back) did not participate on Thursday and Friday.

Arizona’s cornerback depth is down to rookie Christian Matthew, Jace Whittaker and practice squad elevation Nate Hairston.

Wide receiver Marquise Brown (illness) and safety Charles Washington (chest), who were listed as questionable, are active.

The Cardinals’ other listed inactives were DE Zach Allen, QB David Blough, OL Rashaad Coward and OL Wyatt Davis.

Right guard Will Hernandez is active for the first time since Week 9.

As for Denver, quarterback Russell Wilson is inactive, so Brett Rypien will start. Wilson was cleared from concussion protocol ahead of Sunday’s game but will be shelved as a precaution.

Other inactives for the Broncos were WR Kendall Hinton, WR Courtland Sutton, OL Quinn Baily, DL Elijah Garcia, CB Michael Ojemudia and TE Albert Okwuegbunam.
