LANDOVER, MD—The weekly question of whether Trent Williams will be able to play today against the Cardinals has been answered.
The Pro Bowl left tackle is inactive and will not play against Arizona. Ty Nsekhe will start in his place.
The following players are inactive for the Redskins:

- OT Trent Williams
- DL Terrell McClain
- WR Robert Davis
Williams will miss his fourth game of the season with a right knee injury that will require surgery in the offseason. Nsekhe is an adequate replacement but he will be up against Chandler Jones, who has 14 sacks on the season, much of the day.
Brown is the key subtraction from the defensive lineup. The NFL’s leader in combined tackles has dealt with injuries all season but an illness plus injuries to his toe, Achilles, and hip kept him out of practice all week. It was announced that he would be out for Sunday when the final injury report was released on Friday.
Nicholson will miss his fourth straight game after sustaining a concussion. That injury and shoulder problems have sent what appeared to be a promising rookie season off track.
