The Arizona Cardinals announced that they re-signed offensive lineman Will Holden to the 53-man roster and cornerback Chris Jones to the practice squad on Thursday.

In addition to the re-signings of Holden and Jones, offensive lineman Jeremy Vujnovich was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Prior to being sidelined, Vujnovich started two games and played five for the Cardinals in 2018.

With Vujnovich unable to play and other offensive linemen — Justin Pugh, A.Q. Shipley and John Wetzel — also done for the year, re-signing Holden was imperative. Holden started five games for the Cardinals as a rookie in 2017 but was released before the 2018 season.

He spent time on the Indianapolis Colts’ and New Orleans Saints’ practice squads before his return to the Valley.

Jones, a second-year player, appeared in the first game of his NFL career Sunday. But following the Cardinals’ 45-10 loss to the Chargers, Jones was cut from the team.

The Cardinals were able to snag him for their practice squad, however, after he cleared waivers.
