The Arizona Cardinals announced a minor roster move, swapping practice squad running backs. They released running back Abou Toure and added running back Marion Grice to the practice squad.

Grice (6-0, 208) played in 10 games and ran for 41 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries and had seven receptions for 29 yards last season with the Cardinals. He originally joined the Cardinals in September of 2014 from San Diego's practice squad. Grice entered the NFL as a sixth-round pick (201st overall) of the Chargers in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Arizona State. He was released by the Cardinals at the end of the preseason on September 5 and spent three weeks this season on the practice squad of the Detroit Lions.

While at Arizona State, Grice scored 39 career touchdowns to rank fifth in school history. He tallied 3,045 all-purpose yards in two seasons and his 234 points scored is the highest two-year total in ASU history.

It would seem the team is trying to bring back players who had the postseason experience last year. Grice is back and Chris Clemons is back. Grice scored a touchdown in the Cardinals' playoff loss last season. He will wear jersey No. 41.
