As expected, the season for cornerback Crezdon Butler is over. Butler dislocated his ankle last week at practice, and the Cardinals put him on injured reserve Tuesday, ending his season. To fill Butler’s roster spot, the Cardinals are bringing back defensive lineman Ronald Talley from the practice squad. Talley’s practice squad is expected to be filled by Wednesday.
The Cardinals did make a practice squad move Tuesday, however, signing former Viking receiver (and close friend of Larry Fitzgerald) Jaymar Johnson, while releasing wide receiver Brandyn Harvey.
Butler did play on special teams in the opener but the health of veteran Michael Adams likely meant it would have been tougher for him to find the field. The Cardinals probably were overstaffed at defensive back as well, given the presence of fellow waiver-wire acquisition Korey Lindsey.
