The Arizona Cardinals are set to kick off against the Miami Dolphins and they will do without some key players. Two starters -- defensive lineman Darnell Dockett and tight end Todd Heap are inactive for the game, as is kick returner LaRod Stephens-Howling. Nick Eason will start in Dockett's place and, according to the depth chart, Andre Roberts will return kicks.

Here is the full list for both teams:

Cardinals:

  • WR LaRon Byrd
  • QB John Skelton
  • RB LaRod Stephens-Howling
  • G Senio Kelemete
  • TE Jim Dray
  • TE Todd Heap
  • DT Darnell Dockett

Dolphins:

  • QB Pat Devlin
  • WR Marlon Moore
  • LB Austin Spitler
  • T Will Yeatman
  • DT Tony McDaniel
  • TE Michael Egnew
  • WR Rishard Matthews

Down two tight ends, the Cardinals will rely on Rob Housler for spread sets. On defense, Arizona has adequate depth. Eason will start, but Vonnie Holliday and David Carter will probably all see reps.

The game is set to get underway.
