The winless Cardinals will see another starting right tackle head to IR. After Arizona placed would-be right-edge starter Marcus Gilbert on IR, the team moved Jordan Mills off the 53-man roster because of injury.
A knee injury will send Mills to IR as well. Mills made it through limited practices this week, pointing to the recent addition being a possible IR-return candidate after two months. But he had not fared well in his 81 snaps this season. Justin Murray, a waiver claim Mills replaced in the Cards’ starting lineup in Week 3, will reclaim the right tackle job, per Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com.
Mills signed with the Dolphins this offseason but did not make the rebuilding team’s roster. He then caught on with the Cardinals just before the season on a one-year, $1.25MM deal. The Cards have struggled up front for a few years now, with injuries continuing to ransack this franchise’s first-string blockers. Mills started each game of the previous three Bills seasons but was not brought back for Buffalo’s 2019 campaign.
The Cardinals replaced Mills on their active roster with tight end Darrell Daniels, a practice squad player who has bounced on an off Arizona’s roster this season.
