Arizona places Housler on IR, promotes WR Taylor

The Arizona Cardinals have placed tight end Rob Housler on

injured reserve and promoted wide receiver Kerry Taylor to the

active roster.

Housler is the team’s third-leading receiver with 45 catches for

417 yards and a touchdown. He injured his shoulder in Sunday’s

28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Taylor, who grew up in nearby Chandler, Ariz., and played for

Arizona State, began the season on New England’s practice squad and

joined the Arizona practice squad on Sept. 24.

In addition, the team signed defensive end Everrette Thompson to

the practice squad.
