NFL Trade Rumors:
Cardinals HC fourth-round pick OLB Alex Okafor suffered a torn biceps and will miss the remainder of the season, per Alex Marvez.
Arizona has already placed LBs Lorenzo Alexander and Sam Acho on season-ending injured reserve, so losing another linebacker isn’t going to help their defense moving forward.
The Cardinals added LB Vic So’oto and ILB Kenny Demens to their active roster, with LB Bruce Taylor being added to their practice squad earlier Tuesday.

You might have heard (or, if you’re one of the unfortunate ones, seen) that Arizona Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lost the tip of one of his fingers during the Cards’ game this past weekend.

If you’re unaware of what happened to one of Rashad Johnson fingers on Sunday, go here for the details and here for the visual that is sure to turn your stomach.
Johnson has remained in good spirits despite losing the tip of one his fingers and apparently the Cardinals have too. So in response to his injury the team tweeted out this foam finger that is just for Johnson.
By : Shaun DePasquale (@ShaunDoesDraft) Here are four potential fantasy studs that you want to consider starting this week: • Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - No one is allowing more rushing yards this year than Jacksonville (167 yards), and Richardson has now had an extra week to digest the Colts playbook.

Sunday, Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson lost the tip of his middle finger (down to the first knuckle) during Arizona’s game with the New Orleans Saints.
