Coach Steve Wilks said Barksdale was in the concussion protocol following last Sunday's loss to the Falcons, so it's curious he isn't listed at all on the injury report. Regardless, the 30-year-old appears to have cleared the concussion protocol and should continue to start at right tackle against the Rams in Week 16.
Barksdale sustained a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Barksdale will now have to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol to have any chance of playing Sunday against the Rams. The 30-year-old was let go by the Chargers at the start of December and was quickly signed by the Cardinals, and has started both games at right tackle with his new team.
Barksdale was let go by the Chargers on Monday and now joins the Cardinals after going unclaimed off waivers. The 30-year-old provides some much-needed depth for an Arizona offensive line that has zero remaining members of the starting unit with which they began the season.
Barksdale was waived by the Chargers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Barksdale was inactive due to personal reasons during Sunday's win over the Steelers, and has ultimately been let go by the Chargers. The circumstances surrounding Barksdale's release remain undisclosed, but it's worth noting that the veteran offensive tackle appears to be fully healthy. Barksdale will look to earn a role elsewhere in the league if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
Barksdale (personal) is officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports.
Barksdale was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's primetime tilt against the Steelers, but has ultimately been ruled out for undisclosed personal reasons. Trent Scott could see limited use as a backup to starting right tackle Sam Tevi as long as Barksdale remains sidelined.
