Mike Glennon as backup, Sam Bradford inactive against Seahawks

A week after throwing two touchdown passes but getting benched late against the Bears, Sam Bradford is inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks as rookie Josh Rosen gets his first start. Mike Glennon moves from the third spot on the depth chart to No. 2. The way Bradford's contract is structured, there were per-game bonuses for being on the active 46-man roster of more than $300,000, so that is something on which Bradford will miss out. General Manager Steve Keim did say the Cardinals "won't get consumed with the money part of it." At the same time, with as much as Bradford has struggled, elevating Glennon isn't a surprise simply on football terms. It also underscores how the Cardinals figure to ride with their rookie going forward.

Tackle Andre Smith (elbow) remains inactive as well, meaning John Wetzel continues to start on the right side. The full inactive list:

-- QB Sam Bradford

-- RB T.J. Logan

-- CB Deatrick Nichols

-- G Jeremy Vujnovich

-- T Andre Smith (elbow)

-- T Korey Cunningham

-- DE Ifeadi Odenigbo
