GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A concussion limited him in practice this week -- and kept him off the field completely Thursday -- but Justin Bethel will play Sunday when the Arizona Cardinals host the Indianapolis Colts at University of Phoenix Stadium.

He was not among the seven players designated as inactive Sunday.

Bethel suffered a concussion early in the second quarter at Jacksonville last Sunday, and had been listed as questionable all week.

His availability is a bonus for the Cardinals, who rely on him heavily on special teams. He's the No. 1 gunner on the team, and his quickness off the edge has resulted in two blocked field goals -- Week 2 against Detroit and Week 10 against Houston.

Bethel has a team-high 12 special teams tackles, plus he has downed five punts inside the 20-yard line this season.

For the third straight week, the Cardinals' inactives are the same:

WR Brittan Golden
QB Ryan Lindley
LB Dontay Moch
TE Kory Sperry
DE Ronald Talley
G Earl Watford
RB Ryan Williams

Golden, it should be mentioned, is still bothered by a hamstring injury. This week marked the first time he participated each day in practice, albeit on a limited basis.

The remaining six players are healthy scratches.
