Cardinals' Senio Kelemete struggled with transition from tackle to guard

Rookie out of Washington is the lone member of Arizona's 2012 draft class to not play this season.

Since being drafted by the Arizona Cardinals, offensive lineman Senio Kelemete has struggled with the transition from tackle to guard, according to a report on the team's official website.

Kelemete, the former standout at Washington who was drafted by Arizona in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, is the only rookie to not suit up for the Cardinals this season. The 6'4, 300-pound 22-year-old has been inactive every game and it will likely stay that way for the team's final two outings of the season, according to the report.

"He probably had the furthest to go from where he was playing [tackle] in college to playing guard in the NFL," coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "He's a good young prospect ... The only way we will get a real test is to see him in a game, and I don't know if that will happen over the last two weeks."

The Cardinals (5-9) host the Chicago Bears (8-6) on Sunday at 2:25 p.m. MST. The game will be televised by FOX.
