Cards defensive tackle Williams active vs. Panthers

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Dan Williams is active for the team’s NFC wild-card game Saturday against the Carolina Panthers.

Williams had been listed as questionable with a foot injury.

Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton was ruled out earlier in the week with a knee injury. Ryan Lindley will make his third straight start for Arizona.

Along with Stanton, wide receiver Brittan Golden, safety Chris Clemons, guard Jonathan Cooper, nose tackle Alameda Ta’amu, guard Anthony Steen and defensive end Kareem Martin are inactive.

Carolina’s inactive players include safety Thomas DeCoud, cornerback James Dockery, linebacker A.J. Klein, defensive tackle Kyle Love, defensive end Frank Alexander and offensive linemen Amini Silatolu and David Foucault.

Carolina running back DeAngelo Williams is active as expected after missing the past four games with a broken hand.
