The Cardinals have brought back, yet again, wide receiver Onrea Jones. Jones, who has been with the Cards on and off since 2008, is a little insurance for a banged-up wide receiving corps. Early Doucet (hernia) is still out and Steve Breaston was limping around Monday with his bruised knee. If Breaston is troubled on game day, at least the Cards will have another veteran besides Larry Fitzgerald to lean upon.
To make room on the roster, the Cardinals released cornerback A.J. Jefferson. The Cards also cut running back Ian Johnson from the practice squad (so that’s a possible spot for Jefferson, I’d suspect).

The Cardinals have put together a practice squad. Three newcomers are joining G Tom Pestock, T Herman Johnson and WR Isaiah Williams. RB Ian Johnson, cut by the Vikings, is best known for being the Boise State hero in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl who ended up proposing to his now-wife at University of Phoenix Stadium after the game. The Cards are also adding WR Tim Brown — no, not that one — who was cut by the Giants (and who played for receivers coach John McNulty when both were at Rutgers) and LB Curtis Gatewood, cut by the Redskins. Gatewood has bounced around with the Lions, Chiefs, Eagles and Steelers as well as an inside ‘backer. The Cardinals still have two spots to fill, although that is expected to happen sooner rather than later.
Oh, and it’s now official the Cards brought in the three waiver claim players: FB Jerome Johnson, LB Cyril Obiozor and CB Brandon McDonald.
