Cardinals added OL Billy Price ‘as insurance’ for O-line

With Justin Pugh, Max Garcia and Rodney Hudson all dealing with injuries, Price is a decent insurance policy with a bit of experience.

The Arizona Cardinals made a roster move this week, adding center Billy Price to the active roster, signing him from the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad.

The move was a bit of a surprise until the team released its first injury report of the week Wednesday. Starting left guard Justin Pugh, starting center Rodney Hudson and backup guard Max Garcia all did not practice Wednesday with injuries.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said the addition of Price, who has really only played center in the NFL but can play guard as well, was because of the uncertainty of the available linemen for this week.

“It’s one of those deals where it’s going to be basically until the weekend before we know who can go,” Kingsbury said Wednesday. “You all saw that we signed Billy Price and that’s really as insurance to see who all can play and who can’t numbers-wise.”

Pugh is day-to-day with an elbow injury. Garcia has a toe injury and Hudson, who normally would have missed Wednesday’s practice with a day off for rest, is listed with a knee injury for the second week in a row.

If neither Pugh nor Garcia can play, then backup center Sean Harlow would be called upon to start, leaving the Cardinals with no backup center except for rookie Lecitus Smith, who has not played center before coming to the NFL.

Having Price gives them experience behind Hudson if he gets hurt.

Ideally, he won’t have to play, but he is there if things get bad.

Eagles’ Haason Reddick looking forward to another game in Arizona

The former Cardinals first-round pick had 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in his first game against his former team.

Linebacker Haason Reddick is the one player on the Philadelphia Eagles’ active roster that used to play for the Arizona Cardinals. Reddick, of course, was the Cardinals’ first-round pick in 2017 and spent four years with the team, largely not working out because they wanted him to be an off-ball linebacker.

After leaving in free agency in 2021, first with the Carolina Panthers on a one-year deal and now with the Eagles on a three-year contract, he gets to face his former team for the second time.

It is something he looks forward to for a number of reasons. Part of it is to show off and part is to reconnect with people.

“It’s always special to go back there,” he told reporters in Philly this week after practice. “I always want to go back there just to show them what (they) let go. But I just love going back. seeing some of the guys I played against, some of the coaches that had real love for me while I was there and then, you know of course, some of the fans that had love for me when I was there.”

Reddick already had his first homecoming in 2021 with the Panthers.

In that game, he had four tackles, 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits and a forced fumble. His strip sack on Colt McCoy on the Cardinals’ first possession set up the Panthers’ first touchdown en route to a 17-0 lead and 34-10 win.

Reddick had 11 sacks last season for the Panthers before signing a three-year deal to join the Eagles.

Through four games this season, he has 3.5 sacks (all in the last two games), three quarterback hits and a league-high three forced fumbles.

Eagles kicker Jake Elliott expected to miss Week 5 matchup vs. Cardinals with ankle injury

The Philadelphia Eagles are expected to turn to former Texas kicker Cameron Dicker for Week 5 at the Arizona Cardinals, with Jake Elliott nursing an ankle injury

According to Adam Schefter, the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to be without Pro Bowl kicker Jake Elliott for their Week 5 matchup on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.

Elliott was injured early in the Eagles’ win over the Jaguars but still made his only field-goal attempt and two of three point-after tries.

He has yet to practice this week, and the team signed Cameron Dicker to the practice squad Tuesday.

Philadelphia had until 90 minutes before Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. kickoff in Arizona to make a decision, but it appears Schefter has ruined that secret.

Jalen Hurts shouted out the Cardinals’ defense in a classy moment the media didn’t ask about them during his press conference

What an incredibly classy moment from Jalen Hurts

The Philadelphia Eagles are the best team in the NFL right now and it’s partly because Jalen Hurts has been so spectacular.

It’s not just on the field, though — he’s been dazzling off of it too. He’s said and done all the right things off of the field so far. He had another one of those moments on Thursday in a press conference ahead of the Eagles’ upcoming game against the Cardinals.

He sat and answered questions from the media for 9 minutes, according to 12 Sports Arizona anchor Cameron Cox. He didn’t get a single question about the Cardinals defense and their upcoming matchup.

But he didn’t let that slide. Before leaving the podium he made sure to point out how good they were.

“I will say this, too. I didn’t get any questions about the Cardinals…This is a really good team we’re about to play. They have a really good defense — disruptive up front. They have speed on the backend. So, let’s not set the precedent for that. This is a good football team.” 

That’s just an incredibly respectful gesture in a moment where Hurts wasn’t even asked for one. Shoutout to Hurts for this — certainly, Cardinals fans will appreciate it.

Former Cardinals WR Andy Isabella signing with Ravens’ practice squad

The Cardinals and 2019 second-round pick Andy Isabella cut ties Wednesday. Isabella will sign with the Ravens. joining their practice squad.

The Arizona Cardinals selected WR Andy Isabella in the second round of the 2019 draft. He was a favorite of Kliff Kingsbury and was meant to take over the long-term slot position role.

That never worked out, as Isabella was unable to earn consistent playing time during his time with the Cardinals. Isabella was released by the Cardinals on Wednesday to make room for center Billy Price on the active roster.

Isabella went unclaimed on waivers but intends to sign with the Baltimore Ravens as a free agent, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. He will be joining a Ravens wide receiver room with less competition than the Cardinals, so perhaps he finds a long-term home with them.

The former second-round pick ended his Cardinals career with 33 receptions for 447 yards and three touchdown receptions, the most notable coming in his rookie year. Isabella scored an 88-yard touchdown on Thursday Night Football against the unbeaten 49ers.

It was a disappointing outcome with the Cardinals, particularly given the other wide receivers taken outside of the first round in that draft. The most infamous of course, is Seahawks WR DK Metcalf being selected after Isabella.

K Matt Prater ruled out in Week 5; WR A.J. Green should play vs. Eagles

Matt Ammendola will kick for the Cardinals this weekend against the Eagles.

The Arizona Cardinals are dealing with a few injuries as they prepare for their Week 5 battle at home against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles. They will be without their kicker, Matt Prater.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury told reporters that Prater would be out this week. He has a hip injury that kept him from finishing the game against the Carolina Panthers, a 26-16 win.

They signed Matt Ammendola to the practice squad Tuesday, so he will be elevated Saturday to replace Prater.

Also, after missing one game with a bone bruise in his knee, receiver A.J. Green should be back and play against the Eagles, AZCentral Sports’ Bob McManaman tweeted.

Rondale Moore returned in Week 4 and Antoine Wesley could be back as well, so the Cardinals could have everyone available in the receiver room minus DeAndre Hopkins, who has two games remaining on his suspension.
