The Arizona Cardinals have pulled up Jordan Thomas off the practice squad to be active for their game against the Washington Football Team on Sunday.

From the team:

"The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has elevated tight end Jordan Thomas to the active roster from the practice squad."

"Thomas (6-5, 277) signed with the Cardinals practice squad on September 8 after spending training camp with the Texans. He played in 21 games (12 starts) the past two seasons with Houston and had 21 receptions for 223 yards and four touchdowns. The 24-year old Thomas originally entered with league with the Texans as a sixth-round selection (211th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State and played in all 16 games (10 starts) as a rookie. He played in five games last season after beginning the year on injured reserve. Thomas also played in three postseason games with the Texans and had one catch for seven yards."

Thomas is a big, physical pass catcher, but is not in the same realm of Maxx Williams as a run blocker.

We'll see if Thomas gets on the field, but he gives the Cardinals an extra tight end for Sunday.
