The Arizona Cardinals are giving another rookie a shot on the active roster this week as the team announced they have elevated Jonathan Ward from the practice squad.
From the team:
“The Arizona Cardinals Football Club today announced that the team has elevated running back Jonathan Ward to the active roster from the practice squad.”
“Ward (6-0, 202) signed with the Cardinals this year as an undrafted rookie free agent from Central Michigan and joined Arizona’s practice squad following training camp. He finished his college career with 2,539 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns on 473 carries (5.4-yard avg.) in 42 games. The 22-year old Ward also caught 98 passes for 909 yards with four touchdowns. He ran for a career-high 1,108 yards and 15 touchdowns while starting all 12 games as a senior in 2019.”
“Ward will wear jersey #38.”
Ward may get an opportunity to return kicks and punts this week or at least contribute on special teams.
