The Arizona Cardinals cleared a pair of roster spots on Monday. They placed cornerback Rashad Fenton on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury and they also released a player they had only recently signed.
They waived running back Stevie Scott, whom they added to the roster last week following the Achilles injury to Marlon Mack that landed him on injured reserve.
Scott did not appear in the Cardinals’ preseason opener on Friday.
He most recently played in the USFL for the Michigan Panthers and also has spent time in the NFL with the Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints.
His release suggests that running back Keaontay Ingram could be set to return from the injury that has had him sidelined for a couple of weeks.
Likewise, it would appear that Corey Clement, who left the game Friday to the locker room with an apparent injury, is good to go.
