As the Cardinals began their comeback from Sunday's loss, they made a couple of small roster moves Monday, including the release of running back Tavien Feaster.

That could indicate that running back Jonathan Ward, who missed Sunday's game with a concussion, is close to being ready to return as a backup to James Conner and Eno Benjamin. Chase Edmonds was put on IR on Saturday and cannot return until the Monday night game against the Rams on Dec. 13.

On the injury front, coach Kliff Kingsbury expressed optimism that the team's starting guards, Justin Pugh (calf) and Max Garcia (Achilles), will be available to play Sunday in Seattle.

The Cards also released two players from the practice squad -- defensive end Matt Dickerson and wide receiver Darrius Shepherd, as four players from Sunday reverted to the practice squad: linebacker Joe Walker, offensive lineman Danny Isidora, long snapper Beau Brinkley and wide receiver Greg Dortch.
