After one week, the Arizona Cardinals roster is in a bit of flux, which is not too surprising based on the outcome of game one.

No, the loss is not the reason for the Arizona Cardinals need to make a couple of moves on the active roster, but instead it is the need to fill the gaping hole that David Johnson's injury has created on the roster.

In order to fill that roster spot, the Arizona Cardinals are bringing back Chris Johnson and signing D.J. Foster off the Patriots practice squad.

In corresponding moves, the Cardinals have placed Johnson on the injured reserve, which he can come off in eight weeks if he is healthy, while also releasing offensive tackle Ulrick John from the roster.

On the practice squad front, the Cardinals have released running back James Summers and cornerback Ryan Lewis, while bringing back offensive tackle Givens Price.

A lot of moves being made for the Arizona Cardinals.
