The Cardinals have signed kicker Rodrigo Blankenship to the active roster. Arizona originally brought Blankenship to the practice squad two weeks ago before elevating him to play in a Thursday night matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
During the game, the former Colts kicker went 2/2 on field goals and 2/3 on extra points.
The Cardinals’ starting kicker, Matt Prater, has been out ever since Week One due to a hip injury. One can assume that Matt Prater is expected to miss more time now that Blankenship is officially on the active roster.
Additionally, Arizona made the following roster moves”
- Placed NT Rashard Lawrence on the IR
- Signed OL Sage Doxtater
- Signed Danny Isidora to the practice squad
The Cardinals’ next game will be this Sunday against the 5-1 Minnesota Vikings.
