The Arizona Cardinals have signed tight end Evan Baylis from the practice squad to the active roster, the team announced Monday.

Additionally, Arizona has elevated defensive lineman Trevon Coley and linebacker Reggie Walker to the active roster from the practice squad.

Baylis will see his second straight game on the active roster after being elevated from the practice squad in Week 5’s win over the New York Jets.

Baylis joined the Cardinals practice squad on Sept. 29. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder spent training camp with the Green Bay Packers after playing in five games with them last season. He recorded three special teams tackles.

The 26-year-old tight end entered the league as undrafted rookie free agent with the Houston Texans in 2017. He played in one game as a rookie. Baylis will wear No. 89.

Coley has been with the Cardinals practice squad all season. Before his time with Arizona, Coley was a member of the Indianapolis Colts. He recorded six tackles last season in seven games.

Prior to his stint in Indianapolis, Coley appeared in 31 games over the course of two seasons for the Cleveland Browns (2017-18). The 6-foot-1, 310-pound defensive lineman registered 90 tackles, 11 for losses, 2.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, one forced fumble and two passes defensed.

Coley signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He will wear No. 93.

Walker signed with the Cardinals this season as an undrafted free agent and joined the team’s practice squad after training camp.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pound linebacker notched 140 tackles, 35 for losses, 18 sacks, nine forced fumbles (school record), two fumble recoveries and five passes defensed in 50 games (47 starts) at Kansas State.

Walker will wear No. 56.
