Wells, Stephens-Howling active for Cards

By Mike Sando

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have their full contingent of running backs against the New York Giants, a big boost for them after a rough week at the position.

Beanie Wells and LaRod Stephens-Howling are both active. Both missed the Cardinals' 13-10 defeat in Seattle last week, Wells with a hamstring injury and Stephens-Howling with a hand injury. The Cardinals need the threat of a running game to force tougher choices onto opposing defenses, particularly as it pertains to covering Larry Fitzgerald.

Inactive for the Cardinals: receiver Chansi Stuckey, receiver Stephen Williams, quarterback John Skelton, cornerback Korey Lindsey, tackle D'Anthony Batiste, tight end Jim Dray and defensive lineman Ronald Talley.
