Nkemdiche playing, but Gresham and Logan will sit

The Cardinals will indeed have defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche available today, coming off a foot injury that kept him out of the last couple weeks of the preseason. As has been discussed, there is an intense spotlight on the former first-round pick. The Cardinals need him to play well. But tight end Jermaine Gresham isn't ready yet, coming off his Achilles injury. He will sit.

Another guy who is not available is running back T. J. Logan, who is dealing with a bad ankle. That's significant because the Cardinals will be thin in the backfield -- the only running backs available are David Johnson and Chase Edmonds. Derrick Coleman is the fullback.

The full inactive list for the Cards:

-- QB Mike Glennon

-- RB T.J. Logan

-- CB Deatrick Nichols

-- DE Markus Golden

-- OL Jeremy Vujnovich

-- OL Korey Cunningham

-- TE Jermaine Gresham
