DT Dockett, RB Wells inactive for Cardinals

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


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.
