The future of rookie wide receiver Damond Powell has yet to be determined, after the scary weekend shooting that left him hospitalized. Josh Weinfuss reports that Powell was hit once in the jaw and once in the neck, but is stable. His immediate football future, obviously, is in doubt. The Cardinals have not made any roster moves yet, but with Powell dealing with these injuries, keeping a roster spot for him seems unlikely — especially since new tight end Jermaine Gresham will need a roster spot once he officially signs his deal.
A likely scenario is that Powell would end up on the “reserve/non-football injury” list, which would keep him from counting against the 90-man roster. For that to happen, they would technically have to waive him and then 24 hours later when he clears he would revert to the team’s reserve-NFI list.
The Cardinals have their first training camp practice Saturday.
