Arizona activates Roundtree, Rogers goes on IR

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have activated offensive lineman Raleigh Roundtree, who has not played all season following surgery to remove his spleen.

The surgery was performed after a routine pre-training camp physical showed that Roundtree had an enlarged spleen.

The seven-year NFL veteran was signed as a free agent in 2002 after five years with the San Diego Chargers. He played in 10 games for Arizona last season, starting six.

To make room for Roundtree, first-year offensive tackle Kendrick Rogers was placed on the injured reserve list with a wrist injury that will require surgery.

The Cardinals made another move on Wednesday, placing practice squad offensive lineman Tony Wragge on the injured reserve list with a knee injury.

To take his place, the Cardinals signed former University of Arizona center Steve Grace to the practice squad.
