Cardinals' Fitzgerald, Veldheer active vs. Chiefs

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is active against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Fitzgerald missed the last two games with a sprained left knee, breaking a string of playing in 110 consecutive contests. Arizona's starting left tackle Jared Veldheer (ankle) also was active. Fitzgerald and Veldheer had been listed as questionable.

There were no surprises among Kansas City's inactives. Chiefs defensive end Allen Bailey and wide receiver Junior Hemingway already had been declared out with concussions.

Arizona had declared running back Andre Ellington (hip, foot) and right guard Paul Fanaika (ankle) as out. Both are starters.
