Cards add linebacker after injuries

Posted by Darren Urban on September 24, 2013 – 10:22 am

The Cardinals promoted Dontay Moch from the practice squad to aid with their linebacker woes, and today, they did more, signing linebacker Vic So’oto. So’oto has spent time with the Packers, Raiders and Redskins since arriving in the league in 2011. He’ll give them a body for now. Holdovers Matt Shaughnessy, John Abraham, Alex Okafor and Moch will be ahead of him on the depth chart. Officially, Okafor will be listed as the first-unit Sam linebacker, with Moch and So’oto behind him. At Will LB, Shaughnessy is first, ahead of Abraham.

The Cards also added linebacker Bruce Taylor to the practice squad. Taylor, an undrafted rookie, was with the Bengals in training camp.

Next week, the Cards will also get back linebacker Daryl Washington from suspension. Adding So’oto means they have filled the roster back to 53, meaning someone will have to be released to get Washington back and active.
