The Arizona Cardinals defensive line is a problem.
Just not the type of problem we had hoped they would be.
The team announced before their game against the Seattle Seahawks that they are placing both Corey Peters (known) and Jordan Phillips (surprising) on injured reserve.
From the team:
Signed tight end Evan Baylis and linebacker Reggie Walker to the active roster from the practice squad
– Placed defensive linemen Corey Peters (knee) and Jordan Phillips (hamstring) on injured reserve
– Elevated defensive lineman Michael Dogbe (DOG-bee) and running back D.J. Foster to the active roster from the practice squad
Baylis (6-5, 250) has played in three games this season with the Cardinals after originally joining the Cardinals practice squad on September 29. He came to Arizona after spending training camp with Green Bay. Baylis played in five games with the Packers last season and had three special teams tackles. The 26-year old Baylis entered the league in 2017 with Houston as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oregon and played one game with the Texans as a rookie.
Dogbe (6-3, 280) played for the Cardinals in Week 9 against the Dolphins after being elevated to the active roster from the practice squad. The 24-year old Dogbe played in eight games as a rookie in 2019 and had five tackles, one tackle for loss and one quarterback after originally joining the team as a seventh-round selection (249th overall) in the NFL Draft out of Temple.
Foster (6-0, 195) has played in four games this year for the Cardinals and has one carry for two yards and one reception for seven yards after beginning the season on Arizona’s practice squad. He played in six games with the Cardinals last season prior to being placed on injured reserve (hamstring). A former Arizona State standout, Foster is a Scottsdale, AZ native who came to the Cardinals in 2017 and had 336 all-purpose yards (19 rushing, 133 receiving and 184 return yards) in seven games after joining the team from New England’s practice squad in Week 2.
Walker (6-2, 250) played for the Cardinals in Week 6 against the Cowboys and had one tackle after being elevated from the practice squad. He signed with the Cardinals this year as an undrafted rookie free agent from Kansas State and joined the team’s practice squad following training camp. Walker played 50 games (47 starts) at Kansas State and recorded 140 tackles (101 solo), 18 sacks, 35 tackles for loss, nine forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and five passes defensed in his collegiate career.
Baylis will wear jersey #89, Dogbe will wear #91, Foster will wear #37 and Walker will wear #56.
