Dec 28 2018 - Pasoni Tasini
  DT Pasoni Tasini was signed by the Cardinals from their practice squad Friday (Dec. 28). Tasini (6-3, 307) has spent the past two seasons on Arizona's practice squad after originally joining the team in 2017 as an undrafted rookie free agent from Utah.


Dec 28 2018 - *Malachi Dupre
  WR Malachi Dupre was signed by the Cardinals from their practice squad Friday (Dec. 28). Dupre (6-2, 196) signed with the Cardinals practice squad on Dec. 5. He has spent time on the practice squads of the Bills, Texans and Seahawks after entering the league with the Packers as a seventh-round selection (247th overall) in the 2017 draft out of LSU. The 23-year old Dupre spent the majority of his rookie season on Buffalo's practice squad and was elevated to the Bills active roster, but didn't play. He spent time with the Texans and Seahawks this season prior to joining the Cardinals.


Dec 27 2018 - Will House
  G Will House was signed by the Cardinals to the practice squad Wednesday (Dec. 26). He had been released by the Cardinals from the practice squad Oct. 16 and by the Colts from the practice squad Oct. 26. House (6-3, 314) originally joined the Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in May out of Southern Nazarene and spent the first six weeks of the season on Arizona's practice squad. He also spent time on the Colts practice squad this year.


Dec 26 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen has had problems keeping his eyes downfield, which is something he will need to work on during the offseason, according to coach Steve Wilks. Rosen on Wednesday agreed with Wilks' assessment. "Absolutely," he said. "You have to dance the fine line between feeling a particular rusher who has more of a clean shot at you where you really have to evade him versus something where you've got to keep your eyes down and use more of a slight pocket move. That's something that Aaron Rodgers is specifically exceptional at - his poise in the pocket and his ability to extend plays without moving anywhere, trusting his offensive line and kind of having that sixth sense. That's something that I'm definitely trying to grow throughout my career, and when Coach Wilks says thing like 'valuable reps,' that's what he means. Those are the kind of reps where you just feel the pocket. You're going to get extremes of either end. You're going to have guys get at you in one second because you're hot, or you're going to have guys come in four or five seconds, and you can't get antsy at three."


Dec 26 2018 - Benson Mayowa
  DE Benson Mayowa (neck/back) missed practice on Wednesday but coach Steve Wilks said he hopes Mayowa will be available for Sunday's game at Seattle.


Dec 26 2018 - Markus Golden

Dec 26 2018 - Korey Cunningham

Dec 25 2018 - D.J. Swearinger
  S D.J. Swearinger was claimed by the Cardinals one day after his release from the Redskins. He returns to the team he played for in late 2015 and 2016. Swearinger was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate this season with Washington after registering a team-high four interceptions in 15 starts along with 64 tackles (52 solo), two sacks, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. Swearinger's departure from the Redskins stemmed from his postgame comments regarding the team playing man-to-man on a third-down play that resulted in a holding penalty on cornerback Fabian Moreau. He was also angered about the decision to put Moreau in that position against Titans backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert.


Dec 24 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald has 698 receiving yards this season, and if does not get at least 82 yards in the final game he will have the lowest single-season receiving-yardage total in his 15-year career.

Dec 24 2018 - David Johnson
  RB David Johnson ran for 35 yards on 10 carries Sunday, the third straight game he was held under 60 yards rushing and the fifth straight game he has averaged no more than 3.7 yards per carry.


Dec 24 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen completed 12 of 23 passes (52.2 percent) in the 31-9 loss to the Rams on Sunday. It was the 10th time this season he failed to complete at least 60 percent of his passes. He did not throw any interceptions, though. Rosen was the team's leading rusher in the game with 49 yards on the ground.


Dec 24 2018 - D.J. Swearinger
  S D.J. Swearinger was placed on waivers by the Redskins Monday (Dec. 24).


Dec 24 2018 - D.J. Swearinger
  S D.J. Swearinger was released following the safety's critical comments toward defensive coordinator Greg Manusky, according to a report Monday. Per The Athletic, Swearinger was called into coach Jay Gruden's office on Monday and informed of his release. Swearinger confirmed the news on 106.7 The Fan later in the morning. "I don't regret nothing, because I know I gave 100 percent from my heart," Swearinger said.


Dec 23 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen left the game in the fourth quarter, the second straight game he was forced to leave because of subpar play. He finished 12-of-23 for 87 yards without a touchdown or an interception. "It's frustrating, but it's my fault," Rosen said of his early exit.


Dec 23 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald went out on the offensive in defense of embattled head coach Steve Wilks. Fitzgerald showed his support of Wilks via text to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport amid reports that the coach could be ushered out after his lone season with the Cardinals (3-11). "We all would want him back," Fitzgerald wrote. Rapoport added that team owner Michael Bidwill has made "no firm decision regarding Wilks, who was hired in January. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning that the Cardinals are not expected to retain Wilks at the end of the season.


Dec 23 2018 - D.J. Swearinger
  S D.J. Swearinger was critical of defensive coordinator Greg Manusky's calls on the drive that ended with a go-ahead score for the Tennessee Titans on Saturday. Swearinger took issue with the team playing man-to-man on a third down play that resulted in a holding penalty on cornerback Fabian Moreau. He was also angered about the decision to put Moreau in that position against Titans backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert. "I felt like we should have been more aggressive," the 27-year-old Swearinger said after the 25-16 loss. "I feel like on the third down and 6, third down and 7, we're playing a backup quarterback, why would you put us in man-to-man? We are our best on defense when we look at the quarterback. When you go one high on a backup quarterback, that's easy, man. It'll go backside every time. I feel like if we look at the quarterback with all this time we've got on the back end, man, we can dominate every team, every week. I'm not the defensive coordinator though, so..."


Dec 20 2018 - Justin Evans
  G Justin Evans was released from the practice squad by the Cardinals Wednesday (Dec. 19) and then re-signed to the practice squad Thursday.


Dec 20 2018 - *Pharoh Cooper

Dec 20 2018 - Pete Robertson

He signed with Washington in 2017 and spent the first 11 weeks of the season on the Redskins practice squad last season before being elevated to the active roster where he played in four games and had two tackles.


Dec 20 2018 - David Amerson
  CB David Amerson is expected to start Sunday's game against the Rams despite suffering concussion symptoms last Sunday against the Falcons. Nevertheless, the Cardinals made a series of moves at the cornerback position this week, which included elevating corners Deatrick Nichols and Chris Jones form the practice squad and releasing corners Dontae Johnson and Quinten Rollins.


Dec 20 2018 - Josh Rosen
  QB Josh Rosen will start each of the Cardinals' final two games, head coach Steve Wilks said, even though the rookie has been taking a beating and will be going up against two very physical defenses when Arizona meets the Rams and the Seahawks. Rosen said he would be angry if he didn't get to play these final two games. "I don't really want to speak more on that because I want to play," he said. "I couldn't make it any more clear. I would be very frustrated if they didn't play me, but those are decisions above me. I'm glad, at least, from practice today I'm playing. I'm very grateful for that. I would be very frustrated, but it's out of my control."


Dec 19 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
  WR Larry Fitzgerald admitted to being uncertain if he'll retire or return for a 16th NFL season. Fitzgerald told the Arizona Republic that he has "no clue" about his future plans. So, does that mean that the 35-year-old might be playing in his final home game on Sunday (4:05 p.m. ET) when the Cardinals (3-11) host the Los Angeles Rams (11-3) at State Farm Stadium? "It may. It may not," Fitzgerald said. "NFL careers end every Sunday. I'm just blessed to be able to play the game I love."

Dec 12 2018 - Deone Bucannon
  LB Deone Bucannon (chest) returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday after missing the past three games and there's a chance he might be able to play Sunday in Atlanta.

Dec 9 2018 - Larry Fitzgerald
