The Arizona Cardinals have placed receiver Brittan Golden on injured reserve and re-signed running back Bronson Hill, the team announced Tuesday.

Golden’s placement on IR was expected after he suffered a broken arm against the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Hill was released by the Cardinals on Saturday after appearing on the active roster for two games following his elevation from the practice squad on Nov. 29. Hill had originally been signed to the practice squad on Nov. 20.

A product of Eastern Michigan, Hill was signed by Buffalo in 2015 as an undrafted rookie free agent.

Hill has spent his career on the practice squad of four teams, including the Bears, Dolphins, Saints, and Vikings. His only game action came in 2016 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he recorded two carries for 11 yards in three appearances.

In addition to Hill, the Cardinals also signed linebacker Vontarrius Dora and receiver Rashad Ross to the practice squad, releasing linebacker Kevin Snyder.

Dora rejoins the Cardinals after spending Week 5 on the practice squad.

Dora entered the league with the Broncos as an undrafted rookie free agent from Louisiana Tech in 2016. In his short career, he has appeared in one game, and most recently was on the Colts practice squad before he was released on Nov. 14.

Rashad Ross joins the Cardinals after he was released by Buffalo on Sept. 2.

A local product from Arizona State, Ross has appeared in 20 games with Chicago in 2014 and Washington in 2015-16 since he was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2013 by Tennessee.

In his career, Ross has returned 34 kicks for 812 yards, averaging 23.9 yards per return. In addition, Ross has nine career catches for 192 yards and a touchdown.
