The Arizona Cardinals signed offensive lineman Rashaad Coward to the 53-man roster off their practice squad on Tuesday and released kicker Tristan Vizcaino.
Vizcaino signed before the Cardinals faced the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday and made two field goals and all three extra-point attempts in the 27-17 win.
In a trio of practice squad moves Tuesday, Arizona additionally re-signed defensive lineman Michael Dogbe and released offensive lineman Sage Doxtater, as well as linebacker Blake Lynch.
Arizona had released Dogbe last Thursday.
Coward joins the active roster after spending most of August and part of September on the team without seeing game action.
He was released on Sept. 19 after an injury but re-joined the Cardinals practice squad on Nov. 2.
The Cardinals elevated him this past week, and Coward played 48 snaps (71% of those available) on offense. He split time at left guard with Cody Ford.
Prior to this season, Coward has played for the Chicago Bears (2017-20), Pittsburgh Steelers (2021), Jacksonville Jaguars (2021) and Atlanta Falcons (2022). He has 35 games of experience.
Dogbe was selected by the Cardinals in the seventh round of the 2019 draft with the No. 249 overall pick.
In his tenure in the Valley, Dogbe has tallied 46 tackles (24 solo), three tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, one fumble recovery and four QB hits across 36 games (three starts).
