Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett and running back Beanie Wells were inactive for Arizona on Sunday in the Cardinals' game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Dockett, a two-time Pro Bowler, was out with a shoulder injury. His absence ended a streak of 104 consecutive games played, the second-longest among active defensive tackles. Justin Smith of San Francisco had 151 entering this weekend's play.

Wells missed the game with a sore right knee. Wells had only one carry last week after what the team said was an allergic reaction to an injection intended to add lubrication to the knee. He missed the first two games of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on the knee.

Seattle was without starting left tackle Russell Okung, the team's first-round draft pick this season, because of an ankle injury.

Alan Branch took Dockett's spot in the lineup and Tim Hightower was Arizona's starting running back. Tyler Plumbus started at tackle in place of Okung.
