A Few Early Week Injury and Roster Updates

Cardinals' FB Nehemiah Broughton participates in training camp drills.

Cardinals’ full back Nehemiah Broughton tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the pre-season victory over the Bears.  Broughton will miss the entire 2010 season.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, O’Brien Schofield, and now Nehemiah Broughton have all dealt with knee ligament tears at some point during this off-season.  In addition, rookie TE Jim Dray tore his ACL during college, though he’s fully recovered now.

To cover the loss of Broughton, the Cardinals traded rookie CB Jorrick Calvin to the Eagles for FB Charles Scott.  Scott will battle Reagan Maui’a for the starting job, as Maui’a is the only remaining healthy full back on the Cardinals’ roster.

Calvin, the team’s sixth-round selection, doesn’t seem like a great loss as he fell behind Marshay Green on the CB depth chart.  Calvin, therefore, was highly unlikely to make the team.

In addition, Darren Urban reports that the Cardinals released tight end Dominique Byrd and offensive linemen Casey Knips and David Moosman.  Finally, the Cardinals brought in wide receiver Isaiah Williams.
