Big-picture look at NFC West roster moves

The first chart shows NFC West roster counts by position after the Arizona Cardinals moved inside linebacker Gerald Hayes and outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield onto their active roster Saturday.

Hayes entered the season on the physically unable to perform list. Schofield had been on the non-football injury list.

The team released receiver Onrea Jones and linebacker Alex Hall. The Cardinals' numbers at receiver are improving with Steve Breaston's expected return from knee surgery Sunday.

The second chart shows roster counts for practice squads only. The Rams signed receiver Greg Mathews to their practice squad after placing receiver Brandon McRae on the practiced squad/injured list.

Inflated numbers at positions on the practice squad often reflect depleted numbers and/or injuries at those positions on the 53-man roster.
