NFL Week 12, Monday Night Football: Cardinals/49ers Inactives, Replacement Starters

The Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers both released their list of inactive players for tonight's Monday Night Football game. For the Cardinals, starters Greg Toler and Calais Campbell are out because of injury and head the inactive list. Alan Branch will replace Campbell and Michael Adams will replace Toler in the starting lineup. The other Cardinal inactives are receiver Max Komar, safety Hamza Abdullah, cornerback Marshay Green, linebacker Reggie Walker and center Ben Claxton.

LaRod Stephens-Howling and Jason Wright both return for active duty on special teams. The return of "Hyphen" will be a huge boost, as he has been the best scoring threat on the team returning kicks (yes, it is as bad as that sounds). The only surprise for me was that recently promoted Marhsay Green is inactive. I thought for sure that he would get playing time on special teams.

The Cardinals have a full, healthy offensive lineup. Defensively, Clark Haggans returns to the starting lineup after missing last week's game.

For San Francisco, the inactives kicker Joe Nedney, receiver Kyle Williams, cornerback Tramaine Brock, cornerback William James, linebacker Thaddeus Gibson, tackle Joe Staley and tackle Alex Boone. The main impact of this is that Nedney, who has had many clutch kicks in his career, will not be in a position to make a difference if the game is close at the end. First-year player Shane Andrus will replace Nedney tonight.active lists
