The Arizona Cardinals defense struggled against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. While it was a product of Covid-19 and the bumps and bruises of a long season, it still was a huge issue.

The Cardinals are getting healthy at the right time.

The team announced on Wednesday they are activating both Byron Murphy and Devon Kennard off of the Covid-19 list.

From the team:

Activated linebacker Devon Kennard and cornerback Byron Murphy Jr. from the Reserve/COVID-19 list

They made a plethora of other moves as well.

– Placed cornerback Kevin Peterson (concussion) on injured reserve

– Designated defensive lineman Rashard Lawrence and offensive lineman J.R. Sweezy to return from the injured reserve list

Lawrence and Sweezy can begin practicing and the team can activate each of them to the 53-man roster at any time during the next 21 days or at the conclusion of the three-week period.

Kennard and Murphy were both placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on November 2.

Let’s hope the reinforcements are ready on Sunday for a tough Buffalo Bills opponent.
