Arizona Cardinals place another offensive lineman on IR, make practice squad change

The Arizona Cardinals are attempting to save face for the rest of the season by making changes to the active and practice rosters.


Sunday's blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks was the lowest of low points for the Arizona Cardinals this season. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt was so disgusted by the loss, he apologized for his team's performance in the game. With such a beating, changes needed to be made on both the active roster and practice squad.

Quarterback Brian Hoyer was picked up off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Hoyer joined the Steelers after the team sustained multiple injuries to the quarterbacking group. He didn't see any playing time while with Pittsburgh. Hoyer is brought into the Cardinals' carousel of QB's as another option for the team to go to in the remaining three games of the season.

Center Rich Ohrnberger is now out for the season after he sustained a knee injury in Sunday's game. Rookie Scott Wedige replaced Ohrnberger in the game and will probably start at center against Detroit. This is the second center lost for the Cards this season. Lyle Sendlein was injured on Nov. 25, putting Ohrnberger in his spot.

The final move on Monday was to release practice squad wide receiver Isaiah Williams. Williams was on the practice squad's injured reserve when cut.
