Arizona Cardinals linebacker Jeremy Cash was waived Monday after his knee injury was reported to be season-ending, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

In a corresponding move, the team signed linebacker Gerald Hodges.

Cash was injured in the Cardinals’ preseason game against the Chargers on Saturday.

Prior to getting injured, Cash recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown in the game. He also had two tackles.

Pro Football Focus gave Cash the second-best rating among Cardinals who played at least 10 snaps. Cash’s 91.7 was just below guard Mike Iupati, who had a 93.8 rating but was subbed out quickly with the first unit.

Cash was a candidate to make the 53-man roster, according to Rapoport, and was listed as Deone Bucannon’s backup at weak-side linebacker on the Cardinals’ first unofficial depth chart.

Hodges has been in the league since 2013. After playing for Minnesota and earning some starting time beginning in his second season, Hodges was traded to the 49ers in year three. There, he started 16 of the 25 games, intercepting two passes, forcing a fumble and getting three sacks in 2016.

Hodges played for the Saints in 2017 but did not start a game.
