SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Arizona Cardinals announced Monday afternoon that outside linebackers Lorenzo Alexander (foot) and Sam Acho (leg) were placed on injured reserve and will miss the rest of the season.
Later, outside linebacker Dontay Moch was promoted from the practice squad.
The Cincinnati Bengals drafted Moch in the third round in 2011, but the Arizona native played in just one game last season and was inactive for all 16 games in 2011.
This leaves the Cardinals with one open spot on the 53-man roster. GM Steve Keim and vice president of player personnel Jason Licht will likley look churn over the waiver wire, don’t be surprised to hear about a few tryouts or a signing quickly.
Practice squad linebacker Kenny Rowe said Monday that he played some defensive end at the University of Oregon in a 4-3 system and could play outside linebacker if needed.
