The Cardinals waived Stinson (hamstring) from injured reserve Tuesday, AL.com reports.
Stinson spent the first three seasons of his career with the Cardinals, but the 2014 fifth-round pick only accumulated 22 tackles, including one sack, in 29 games. With a hamstring injury in tow, he landed on IR after cut-down date, but Tuesday's move allows him to search for a job elsewhere.
Stinson was waived/injured Saturday, with a hamstring injury being the latest on a long list of ailments the defensive end has suffered from over the course of his three-year career. He'll be free to sign with another team once he is healthy and released from injured reserve.
The Cardinals waived/injured Stinson (hamstring) on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Perpetually injured during his first three years in the NFL, Stinson's health woes extended into this preseason, as he was unable to log a single snap in five opportunities. If he passes through waivers unclaimed, the Cardinals will have a chance to place the defensive lineman on injured reserve.
Stinson injured his hamstring in Monday's practice, Kyle Odegard of AZCArdinals.com reports.
After sitting out most of last season with a toe injury, Stinson was looking to bounce back this season but will be hindered by this injury for the time being. In the four games he played in 2016, he hovered around 50 percent of the defensive snaps. It's unclear how serious this injury is, but once everything is cleared up Stinson could battle Robert Nkemdiche for playing time at defensive end.
