The Cardinals are getting healthier on the defensive line but they aren't quite there yet.

Rookie Rashard Lawrence came off IR this week but his calf injury will keep him sidelined for now, as one of the Cards' inactives for Sunday's game against the Rams. Fellow rookie Leki Fotu, activated Saturday from IR, will be available to play. Defensive lineman Angelo Blackson, who was questionable after coming down with an illness, is active for the game.

Safety Charles Washington, who was also questionable with a groin issue, is also active.

The complete Cardinals inactive list:

  • QB Brett Hundley
  • RB Eno Benjamin
  • S Jalen Thompson (ankle)
  • OL Joshua Miles
  • OL Max Garcia
  • DL Rashard Lawrence
