Arizona Cardinals bring in former Texas running back for workout

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals tried out a running back recently as they search for answers on offense.

The Arizona Cardinals brought former Texas running back Fozzy Whitaker in for a workout, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Whitaker played at Texas from 2008 to 2011, but has yet to play in the NFL.

Whitaker contributed in many ways for the Longhorns. He carried the ball 263 times for 1,233 yards and 12 touchdowns, while catching 77 passes in his career. He also returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in just 10 tries. The running back's senior season was cut short when he tore his ACL and MCL.

Arizona is last in the NFL in rushing yards per game, rushing for just 78.5 a contest. The Cardinals rank second-to-last in yards per carry, picking up just 3.6 yards per rush. Failure in the running game is one of many reasons why Arizona has lost nine-straight games since a 4-0 start.

The Cardinals will try to break that streak against the Lions on Sunday.
