Thomas collides with the return of Williams. If he gets an exemption, he could be included in the practice team next week. He appeared in four matches this season. He played only two offensive snaps but took a touchdown catch against the Carolina Panthers.
3 CB Jas Whitaker, RB DJ Foster, DL Michael Dogbe picked up from practice squad
The Cardinals fielded three players from the practice squad. Two were in the form of COVID callups, as Devon Kennard and Byron Murphy were placed in the COVID-19 reserve earlier in the week.
Foster and Whitaker were COVID additions. Foster is expected to run back Chase Edmonds. Whittaker will be the team’s backup at slot cornerback with Murphy and Dre Kirkpatrick with an injury.
Kevin Pietersen and D’Anti Bobby are expected to play.
Doge was a standard height and would likely be part of the defensive line rotation.
