The Cardinals reduced their roster to the 53-man limit on Saturday by placing tight end Jeff King (knee) and defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin (shoulder) on injured reserve while releasing the following five players: OT Jamaal Johnson-Webb; LB Kenny Rowe; DT Padric Scott; LB and special teams ace Reggie Walker; and former ASU WR Kerry Taylor.Walker tweeted news of his release on Friday. Taylor, Scott, Rowe and Johnson-Webb are all practice squad eligible, but Taylor's release leaves the Cardinals with just four receivers, likely putting them in the market for another player as they sift through the waiver wire. Among the notable bubble players who made the roster were quarterback Ryan Lindley, injury-prone running back Ryan Williams, rookie free-agent receiver Jaron Brown androokie free-agent safety Tony Jefferson, who made too many plays in the preseason for the coaching staff to ignore him. While the 53-man is set for now, coach Bruce Arians has made it clear that this group of players is not set in stone. In addition to needing another receiver, the Cardinals have a surplus of cornerbacks on the roster (7) with Patrick Peterson, Jerraud Powers, Antoine Cason, Justin Bethel, Jamell Fleming, Bryan McCann and Javier Arenas. Tyrann Mathieu is also expected to play nickel corner. That could mean a trade at some point, or the release of one of those players if the Cardinals claim a player off waivers at another position of need. There are other players who also might fall victim to waiver wire additions, likeinebacker Kenny Demens, a surprise member of the current 53-man roster. King and Lumpkin are both eligible to become the one player the team is allowed to bring back off IR after six games, but it is likely the Cardinals were wait to see if they need to use the designation for a more significant playerinjury. The Cardinals can begin naming their practice squad players Sunday at 9 a.m. Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter
