GLENDALE, Ariz. So much for the return of the three tight end sets.

Tight end Richard Gordon, who was signed this week to bolster the position, is among the Chiefs' seven inactives for their 3:05 p.m. showdown against the Arizona Cardinals.

The other inactives are quarterback Aaron Murray, cornerback Jamell Fleming, center Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, receiver Junior Hemingway and defensive end Allen Bailey.

Vance Walker is listed as the starter in Bailey's place, but defensive end Kevin Vickerson will like figure into the game plan.

The Cardinals have a pair of significant players out for Sunday in safety Tyrann Mathieu and running back Andre Ellington. Nose guard Ed Ta'amu, center Anthony Steen, defensive tackle Ed Stinson, guard Paul Fanaika and defensive end Kareem Martin are inactive.
