GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals will probably be without wide receivers Ted Ginn and Michael Floyd for Saturday's preseason opener against the Houston Texans.

Ginn (knee) and Floyd (groin) were listed as "not expected to dress" about 90 minutes before kickoff at University of Phoenix Stadium, along with safety Tyrann Mathieu, center Lyle Sendlein and nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu. The last three were expected to miss this game. Mathieu and Ta'amu are both on PUP while Sendlein is out with a calf injury.

Ginn appeared to injure his right knee at the start of Thursday's practice while fielding punts. He walked off the field gingerly and spent the next few minutes stretching and working it out. He later returned to practice.

According to the Cardinals' depth chart, John Brown and Jaron Brown will slide up into the second and third receiver roles. Playing without two starters will shuffle the playing time and likely give receivers like Brittan Golden, Walt Powell and Dan Buckner more snaps.
