Cardinals hold out WR Larry Fitzgerald for 2nd straight week, Falcons without WR Roddy White


ATLANTA — Veteran wide receivers Larry Fitzgerald of Arizona and Roddy White of Atlanta are missing Sunday's game with injuries.

Fitzgerald is inactive for the second straight game. He sprained his left knee in a win over Detroit on Nov. 16, and his streak of playing in 110 consecutive games ended when he missed last week's loss at Seattle.

John Brown is expected to start for Fitzgerald.

Harry Douglas is expected to start for White, who missed practice all week with an ankle injury. Falcons safety William Moore returns after missing seven games with a shoulder injury.

The Falcons are holding out cornerback Robert Alford (wrist) and defensive tackle Paul Soliai (personal reasons).

Cardinals running back Andre Ellington (hip, toe) is active. Michael Bush, who was signed this week, is inactive.
