The season continues to go a way no one had hoped.
While the Arizona Cardinals continue to fight to finish strong, they will do so with a smaller and smaller group of players they were counting on when the season started.
Today, the team announced they are placing defensive lineman Rodney Gunter on injured reserve.
The team will be bringing back Caraun Reid to fill in for Gunter.
From the team:
Reid (6-2, 292) was released by the Cardinals on Saturday after originally signing with the team on December 4. He is in his sixth NFL season and has played in 44 career games (13 starts) with the Cowboys (2018), Colts (2017), Redskins (2017), Lions (2017; ‘14-15) and Chargers (2016), collecting 46 tackles (34 solo), 3.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, two passes defensed and one forced fumble. Reid entered the league with Detroit as a fifth-round selection (158th overall) in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Princeton.
Reid will wear jersey #94.
Gunter was continuing a strong season coming off his best season in 2018.
Gunter will finish the season with 31 tackles and three sacks on the season. He now has 11 sacks in his career, with 7.5 coming in the last two seasons.
He also has nine tackles for a loss and 10 quarterback hits this season.
Gunter could likely comeback next year as a potential rotational guy.
Good luck on the recovery from the toe injury, Rodney.
