Cardinals place RB D.J. Foster on IR, sign Darius Victor
The Arizona Cardinals signed running back Darius Victor on Tuesday and placed running back D.J. Foster on injured reserve after he suffered a torn ACL and MCL during Sunday’s third preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Victor, who entered the NFL out of Towson as an undrafted rookie with the Saints in 2017, played on the Cardinals practice squad late in 2017 after signing on Nov. 29. He was released by Arizona on May 1.
On Sunday, Foster injured his knee during kickoff coverage and was carted off the field. The 24-year-old was listed as the third back on the depth chart behind David Johnson and rookie Chase Edmonds.
The Cardinals signed Foster from the Patriots’ practice squad last season.
Before the Patriots signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2016, Foster starred at Scottsdale Saguaro High School and Arizona State.
Second-year pro T.J. Logan is likely to receive more playing time with an increased chance of making the team in the wake of Foster’s injury.
Logan rushed for 86 yards, including a 59-yard burst for a touchdown against the Cowboys on Sunday.
