NFL roster cuts: Jeff King to IR, Kerry Taylor cut among moves to get roster to 53 players

The roster as it stands still leads one to think that more moves are coming. izona

Arizona Cardinals head  coach Bruce Arians told his players "don't go buy a car yet" after the first round of cuts. Receiver Kerry Taylor should have followed that advice. No, he didn't buy a car, but he did celebrate a day early, announcing that his dream had come true. He was among the final cuts to get the roster down to the required 53 players.

The team placed tight end Jeff King (knee) and defensive lineman Ricky Lumpkin (shoulder) on season ending injured reserve and moved linebacker Daryl Washington to the suspended list (he has begun a four-game suspension).

Then Arizona cut receiver Kerry Taylor, tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb, linebacker Kenny Rowe, defensive tackle Padric Scott and linebacker Reggie Walker.

That leaves the team with only four receivers.

Taylor, Johnson-Webb, Rowe and Scott are all eligible for the practice squad.

The way the roster stands, there are 11 defensive backs. More moves seem certain from the waiver wire.

Ryan Lindley, Ryan Williams and Tony Jefferson all have made the team...for now.
