The Arizona Cardinals didn't waste much time filling the vacant spot on the roster left by Lance Long. Today they called Keilen Dykes up to the active roster and they brought back Onrea Jones to the practice squad. Dykes, who missed most of camp with a gimpy quad, didn't make the initial 53 man roster but was signed to the practice squad. Jones was cut by the Cardinals and landed on the Redskins' practice squad for a week before they released him earlier this week. Jones means that the Cardinals will keep eight receivers in their 'system' with six on the roster and two (Jones and Ed Gant) on the practice squad.
Dykes should receive quite a bit of playing time this week because Kenny Iwebema is not expected to play this week. Dykes and Alan Branch should be the primary backups at defensive end.
