Arizona Cardinals place TE Housler on IR, promote former ASU WR

USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals placed tight end Rob Housler on the injured reserve and activated former Sun Devil wide receiver Kerry Taylor.

The Arizona Cardinals announced Wednesday that tight end Rob Housler has been added to the injured reserve because of a shoulder injury, and with that move the team added former Arizona State receiver Kerry Taylor to the active roster.

Housler sprained an AC joint in his shoulder, according to The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers, and the second-year pro out of Florida Atlantic finished the season with 45 catches for 417 yards.

Taylor is a familiar face to those in Arizona. He played for the Sun Devils after graduating from Chandler's Hamilton High School, and as a senior at ASU caught 54 balls for 699 yards and three touchdowns. Since, the 6'0, 200 pound receiver has made his rounds on practice squads of Green Bay, San Francisco, and New England last year. This season, he began on the practice squad of the Patriots before joining the Cardinals on Sept. 24.

Taylor will wear No. 18.

The team additionally re-signed defensive end Everrette Thompson to the practice squad. The 6'6, 272 pound rookie out of the University of Washington was on the Cardinals' roster during training camp but was cut at the end of August.
