Another day, another roster move for the Arizona Cardinals.

Wednesday, the team placed safety Chris Clemons on injured reserve and elevated cornerback Cariel Brooks from the practice squad to the active roster.

Clemons, 30, injured a hamstring in Arizona’s 42-17 win over the Detroit Lions Sunday. The seven-year veteran had three tackles in the Cardinals’ first five games this season.

Brooks was with the Cardinals in training camp this summer, but was released on Sept. 5 and re-signed to the practice squad. The 5-foot-11, 200-pound cornerback played his college ball at Adams State. In the preseason, Brooks had eight total tackles and had an 81-yard interception return for a touchdown in a 30-23 win over the Oakland Raiders.

The club also signed safety Durell Eskridge to the practice squad to take Brooks’ place. Eskridge, a Syracuse product, was cut in training camp by the New York Jets.
