With Vujnovich going to IR, the Cardinals are now without two of the five players who started on the offensive line in Sunday’s lopsided loss to the Chargers. Andre Smith was released on Monday and has since rejoined the Bengals.
Vujnovich, 28, appeared in five games for the Cardinals this year and started twice. In 2017, he started all 16 games for the Colts at left guard, but he has struggled in Arizona this year. In Week 10, for example, Vujnovich allowed three sacks against the Chiefs. He’ll likely be replaced at right guard by Oday Aboushi.
Holden was most recently with the Saints’ practice squad. Last year, Holden appeared in seven games (five starts) for the Cardinals and saw snaps at left guard, left tackle, and even tight end.
