Arizona Cardinals Move Injured Players, Make Roster Cuts

With tomorrow's deadline to make roster cuts, the Arizona Cardinals made their first moves towards completing their 53-man roster. By tomorrow, the roster must be down to 80 players. The final deadline to get to 53 will be Sept 3. Among the moves, Greg Toler and Ryan Williams were moved to injured reserve and will be out for the entire year. Those were the expected moves.

Dealing with other injuries, receiver Max Komar and undrafted rookie safety Tommy Irvin  were waived/injured. Like Max Hall, they will have to clear waivers. If they do, they will go to injured reserve. They will more than likely get a settlement and be released. That would then free them up to come back to the team later in the season if the need were to arise and/or they would be free to sign with another team.

The team also cut a few other players, but none that should surprise you. Four undrafted rookies were let go: WR Daiveun Curry-Chapman (the kid out of NAU), LB Duke Lemmens, T Eric Mensik and T Jason Speredon. Two veterans were also cut. They were FB Charles Ali (Anthony Sherman made this happen) and LB Curtis Gatewood.

At least for the time being, the team family members are still on the team. Safety Jared Campbell, Calais Campbell's brother and TE Stephen Skelton, John Skelton's brother are still on the squad.

There are still 27 moves that must be made by the end of the week. For many, the inevitable is simply postponed. For others, the dream of the NFL could soon be a reality.

Update from Tyler: According to Darren Urban, the Arizona Cardinals have also waive-injured linebacker Brandon Sharpe to make room for cornerback Fred Bennett. Bennett has been signed in light of the injury to Greg Toler.
