Cardinals announce 3 roster moves before Sunday’s game vs. 49ers
The Arizona Cardinals have elevated offensive lineman Danny Isidora and tight end Ross Travis from the practice squad, as well as cornerback Jace Whittaker as a COVID-19 replacement, the team announced.
Whittaker is a familiar name for Cardinal fans as he appeared in four games for Arizona in 2020. He had four tackles total, two on special teams and two on defense. The corner played his college ball at the University of Arizona before signing as an undrafted free agent last season.
The Cardinals’ cornerback room is thin on depth as Byron Murphy Jr. is out for Sunday while Marco Wilson and Antonio Hamilton are both questionable.
Isidora has played in 25 games with the Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs after being a fifth-round selection in the 2017 NFL draft. He played 21 games with the Vikings during the first two years of his career but has only appeared in four games since that point.
Travis spent the preseason with Arizona before signing with the practice squad. He has made seven starts in 25 games played while catching 14 balls for 142 yards in his career.
The tight end was drafted by the Chiefs in 2015 and has also played with the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets.
The Cardinals will host the San Francisco 49ers at 1:25 p.m. on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station and Fox.
