The Arizona Cardinals re-signed former Arizona State Sun Devil Marion Grice to the practice squad Thursday.
In 10 games last season for the Cardinals, the 6 foot, 208 pound running back had 41 yards on 15 carries including a touchdown. He also had seven receptions for 29 yards.
Originally drafted by the San Diego Chargers as a sixth round pick (201st overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft, Grice joined the Cardinals from the Chargers practice squad and was released by the team at the end of preseason. He spent three weeks this season on the Detroit Lions practice squad.
As a Sun Devil, Grice scored 39 touchdowns to rank fifth in school history. He racked up 3,045 all-purpose yards in two seasons with ASU, and his 234 points scored is the highest two-year total in school history.
To make room for Grice on the practice squad, the Cardinals released running back Abou Toure.
