The Arizona Cardinals made a series of related roster moves this week, releasing fullback Reagan Maui'a and signing linebacker Zack Nash off the practice squad. Nash, an undrafted free agent rookie from Sacramento State, will take Maui'a's spot on the 53-man active roster as the Cardinals head to Green Bay on a four-game losing streak. Maui'a played in three games for the Cardinals, hauling in one catch for seven yards.

Nash was an under-the-radar prospect in April's Draft, but he set multiple school sack records at Sacramento State. He was signed at the end of April during the NFL's round of undrafted free agent pick ups, but he was released at the end of camp. The Cardinals brought him back and signed him to the practice squad at the end of September, and now the unheralded linebacker has worked his way onto the active roster. He'll wear No. 59.

Arizona also signed linebacker Tim Fugger to the practice squad. Fugger was a 7th Round pick by the Colts this year, but he was released at the end of the preseason.
