Cardinals' Rashad Johnson inactive

October, 6, 2013
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona safety Rashad Johnson is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Johnson was cleared to play Thursday by team doctors after losing the tip of his left middle finger Sept. 22 against the New Orleans Saints, but he was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report. Johnson did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and was limited on Friday.

This is the second straight game he’s missed because of the finger. Rookie Tyrann Mathieu will start in his place.
