Arizona Cardinals make a flurry of practice squad moves, including activating D.J. Foster off practice squad IR

The Arizona Cardinals made three practice squad moves on Tuesday as they get ready for their final game, a big one against the Seattle Seahawks, before they get to their bye week.

From the team:

The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has re-signed offensive lineman Rick Leonard to the practice squad and has activated running back D.J. Foster and tight end Justin Johnson to the practice squad from the practice squad injured reserve list.

In addition, the team has released safety Kentrell Brice, cornerback Jalen Davis and T.J. Ward from the practice squad.

Foster (6-0, 195) was placed on the practice squad injured reserve list on September 21. He played in two games earlier this season for the Cardinals after beginning the season on Arizona’s practice squad.

Johnson (6-3, 245) was placed on practice squad injured reserve on September 24. He originally entered the league last year with Seattle as an undrafted rookie free agent from Mississippi State and spent his rookie season on injured reserve with an achilles injury he suffered in training camp.

Leonard (6-7, 311) was on Arizona’s practice in Week 3 prior to getting released on October 1. He was previously on the Cardinals practice squad as a rookie in 2018. Leonard spent all of last season on Houston’s practice squad and was with the Texans in training camp this year prior to being released on September 5. He originally entered the league with New Orleans as a fourth-round pick (127th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Florida State.

The release of Ward and Brice must mean they expect Jalen Thompson back either this week or right after the bye week, which is a good thing.

Good luck to all.
