Both teams have full complement of regulars heading into Super Bowl

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers had all their regulars ready to play in the Super Bowl.

The inactive lists for both teams Sunday contained no players who had major roles in the teams' playoff success this season. Arizona running back J.J. Arrington and Pittsburgh wide receiver Hines Ward, who were on the injury list during the week, were both, as expected, active for the game.

The Cardinals' inactive list included cornerback Eric Green, fullback Tim Castille, linebacker Victor Hobson, offensive tackles Elliot Vallejo and Brandon Keith, defensive tackle Alan Branch and tight end Jerame Tuman. The third quarterback was Brian St. Pierre.

For the Steelers, inactive were safety Anthony Smith, cornerback Fernando Bryant, linebacker Bruce Davis, offensive tackles Tony Hills and Jason Capizzi, and defensive linemen Scott Paxson and Orpheus Roye. Dennis Dixon was the third quarterback.
