Wright was released by the Cardinals on Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Wright has now completed two briefs stints with the Cardinals this season and was a healthy inactive for both games while on the roster. The veteran wide receiver hasn't had much luck finding a new team in 2018 after spending last season with Chicago.
Wright signed with the team six days prior to this contest, so he wasn't expected to have much of an impact if he did play. The Cardinals will work with four wideouts in a game where they're expected to throw early and often while behind to one of the league's best offenses.
Wright returns to the 53-man roster after he was released by the team Oct. 18 following a two-week stint in Arizona. The veteran wideout will provide some additional depth at the position coming off a bye week, but it's unlikely he'll have a major role in the offensive game plan during Sunday's contest in Kansas City.
The Cardinals released Wright on Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Wright's stay in the desert lasted just under two weeks, with the veteran wideout serving as a healthy inactive during the Cardinals' lone game of that span. With safety Tre Boston (shoulder) ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos, the Cardinals were eager to bolster their depth in the secondary, so cornerback Deatrick Nichols was signed off the practice squad to take Wright's spot on the 53-man roster.
A roster casualty of the Vikings on cut-down day Sept. 1, Wright worked out for a number of teams in the meantime, finally landing a new opportunity with the Cardinals. He's done most of his damage out of the slot in his career, so he may be hard-pressed to see the field with Larry Fitzgerald primarily working there in the latter stages of his career. However, Fitzgerald has been dealing with a hamstring injury for weeks, which could equate to regular snaps for Wright to ease the burden on the long-time Cardinal.
