Cardinals Place Punter Dave Zastudil on IR; Ink QB Dennis Dixon

The Arizona placed punter Dave Zastudil on injured reserve with a bad groin, ending his season, Darren Urban of Azcardinals.com reports.

Zastudil will be replaced by practice squad punter Drew Butler, who already had filled in for Zastudil in the first three games of the season.

To fill Butler’s spot on the practice squad, the Cardinals have signed former Steelers quarterback Dennis Dixon, who worked with Bruce Arians in Pittsburgh and knows the system. He’ll be available for practice Wednesday, so the Cardinals are in better shape to promote him if Carson Palmer and/or Drew Stanton cannot make it back for the game.
