The Arizona Cardinals placed kicker Zane Gonzalez and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips on injured reserve Saturday, ending the season for both players.
Gonzalez had been dealing with a back injury that already had him out for Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles after missing last week’s 26-7 victory over the New York Giants. Mike Nugent is expected to handle the Cardinals’ kicking duties over the final three games.
Phillips was placed on IR for the second time this season because of a hamstring injury. He had 11 tackles over nine games. Linebacker Terrance Smith was activated after he was signed to the practice squad in November.
Also added to the active roster was tight end Darrell Daniels, who has six catches for 83 yards and a touchdown this season. He was on IR the past four weeks with an ankle issue.
Running back D.J. Foster also will be active on Sunday after he was signed to the active roster. He had been elevated from the practice squad seven times this season but saw action on just five snaps.
