  Cardinals | Arizona makes several roster moves    Mon Nov 13, 05:03 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Barkley (49ers) was officially signed by the Arizona Cardinals and S Harlan Miller was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad Monday, Nov. 13. Additionally, S Tyvon Branch (knee) , OT D.J. Humphries (knee) and TE Ifeanyi Momah (ankle) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: With Drew Stanton (knee) banged up, the Cardinals needed to add depth at the QB position. We could see Blaine Gabbert as the team's starter with Barkley as his backup if Stanton misses time.

  Cardinals | Chris Johnson eligible to return    Tue Nov 15, 11:09 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB Chris Johnson (groin) is eligible to return to practice this week, as is S Tyvon Branch (hernia). Both are on the Reserve/Injured list and only one can be designated to return. Head coach Bruce Arians said the decision had not been made, and he also mentioned LB Alani Fua (knee) as a possibility.

Footballguys view: He's not going to have much value unless something happens to David Johnson, who is having a really good season. So, barring something big happening, Johnson will be nothing more than a guy giving Johnson a breather and not worth having on your roster as more than a handcuff.
