Rookie Will Beatty started at right tackle for McKenzie, who last missed a game late in the 2006 season because of a migraine headache. McKenzie, who had started every game this season, was hurt in last week's loss at New Orleans.
Despite being limited most of the week by a sprained right ankle, Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin was in the starting lineup.
Also inactive for the Giants were receivers Sinorice Moss and Ramses Barden, offensive lineman Adam Koets, cornerback Aaron Ross, running back Gartrell Johnson, linebacker Michael Boley and defensive tackle Chris Canty.
