The Cardinals added some depth to the cornerback room Wednesday, signing Breon Borders from the Tennessee Titans practice squad.
Borders had appeared in 11 games for the Titans this season -- including the opener against the Cardinals -- with five total tackles and two passes defensed.
Cardinals cornerback Robert Alford appeared on the Wednesday injury report as a DNP for practice (it was estimated with the Cards only going through a walkthrough) because of a pectoral injury, which necessitated an addition.
The Cardinals also officially opened the practice window to return from Injured Reserve for tight end David Wells (hand). He joins running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) and safety Charles Washington (hamstring) on the return list.
Borders becomes the fifth cornerback on the roster, behind Alford, Byron Murphy, Marco Wilson, and Antonio Hamilton.
The Cardinals try to clinch a playoff spot Sunday when they play in Detroit.
The NFL also changed their practice squad rules Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings, allowing for practice squad players to be elevated to the active roster for unlimited times in the postseason that the league is dealing with a Covid breakout. The rule had been that players could only be elevated twice before having to go through waivers (although teams could also use the practice squad for Covid replacements with no limit.)
