The Cardinals added some depth to their banged up offensive line, signing veteran guard Oday Aboushi on Tuesday.

Aboushi, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Jets who started eight games last year for the Seahawks. He was with the Raiders in training camp and was released on Sept. 1.

The Cardinals played without starting guards Mike Iupati (back) and Justin Pugh (hand) on Thursday against the Broncos. Iupati didn't practice on Monday, while Pugh was limited. Backup guard Jeremy Vujnovich (hamstring) also missed practice on Monday.

The Cardinals released defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo to make room for Aboushi.

The Cardinals also re-signed cornerback Deatrick Nichols to the practice squad. He was released from the active roster on Saturday when the team signed safety Eddie Pleasant.
