Arizona Cardinals Bring Back 'Juggernaut' To Fill In For Injured FB Sherman

The Arizona Cardinals decided to make a move to their roster with the latest wave of injuries from their game on Sunday with the Baltimore Ravens. With rookie fullback Anthony Sherman in a walking boot nursing an ankle injury, the Cardinals signed fullback Reagan Maui'a, who was one of the team's last cuts at the end of the preseason. 

To make room for Maui'a on the 53-man roster, defensive lineman Ron Talley was waived. Talley has been every game so far and was a surprise to make the roster. 

Maui'a, who is famous for running through a wall, is known as "Juggernaut," played very well in training camp and in the preseason but was outplayed by the rookie Sherman, who was drafted in the fifth round of this year's draft. 

He was also suspended for three weeks for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but it was for the first three weeks of the season and not the first three weeks that he was on a roster. 

It is unknown how long Sherman will be sidelined with his ankle injury, but it is certainly looking like he will not play this week against the Rams.
