The Cardinals continue to get healthier on the defensive line, after rookie Leki Fotu was activated from Injured Reserve on Saturday.

One move that did not happen: wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald remains on the COVID list, ending any chance he would play Sunday.

The Cardinals also moved running back D.J. Foster up from the practice squad as Fitzgerald's COVID replacement, and also elevated tight end Seth DeValve from the practice squad.

DeValve, a veteran with 60 career NFL receptions, becomes the TE-elevation of choice after Evan Baylis had filled that role of late; Darrell Daniels remains on the injured reserve list. Foster has played in every game for which he has been healthy for this season despite spending the whole season on the practice squad.

Fotu's return gives the Cardinals a chance to have both rookie defensive linemen play Sunday. Rashard Lawrence was activated from IR this week as well, although he is listed as questionable to play with a calf issue.
