The Arizona Cardinals have a problem, after placing Chris Johnson and Tyvon Branch on injured reserve, they now have one more starter and expected contributor, Evan Mathis joining them.

The veteran guard has been struggling with his health all season, including the preseason, and it finally caught up with him, as he has been placed on IR.

The question for the Arizona Cardinals now is which player is going to come back?

Good thing for the Arizona Cardinals is they do not have to declare who.

The bad news is now they have three key players they have to decide between.

In a corresponding move, the Arizona Cardinals signed Ulrick John.

John is a 2014 drart pick of Indianapolis Colts. He has spent most of his career with the Miami Dolphins after being cut by the Colts. He has been active for two NFL games and then was on the Dolphins practice squad in 2015.
