Cardinals add Arizona product Stanley Berryhill, 3 others to practice squad
The Arizona Cardinals added receivers Stanley Berryhill and C.J. Board, plus cornerback Nate Hairston to the practice squad on Wednesday.
Later on Wednesday, the Cardinals also re-signed wideout Andre Baccellia to the practice squad.
Berryhill, an undrafted rookie who played for the Arizona Wildcats over the last four seasons, joined the Atlanta Falcons for training camp and the preseason. He was cut in August.
A Tucson native, the 5-foot-9 Berryhill made a major leap during his fourth season with the Wildcats, recording 744 receiving yards and rushing 19 times for 121 more (6.4 yards per carry average).
Board, has 24 games of NFL experience with the New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars. He has 17 catches for 183 yards as a pro.
The 6-foot-1 wideout went undrafted out of Chattanooga in 2017 and was first picked up by the Baltimore Ravens.
Hairston, a fifth-round pick by the Colts in 2017, has 59 games played and 18 NFL starts between the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts.
He has 104 tackles, two interceptions, 13 passes defensed and two sacks in his career.
The Cardinals had space to add the trio after signing outside linebacker Devon Kennard to the active roster and releasing receiver Baccellia on Tuesday. The team also signed OL Lachavious Simmons to the practice squad while releasing cornerback Corey Ballentine, receiver Jeff Cotton Jr., offensive lineman Koda Martin and safety Steven Parker from the practice squad.
Baccellia, Berryhill and Board could be candidates to be elevated to the active roster Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, depending on the health situation at wideout.
Baccellia took 19 offensive snaps last week behind starters A.J. Green, Marquise Brown and Greg Dortch. Rostered receivers Andy Isabella (back) and Rondale Moore (hamstring) were ruled out of the game and could be in question for the Week 3 matchup at State Farm Stadium.
