Dobson (hamstring) has agreed to an injury settlement with the Cardinals, per the league's official transaction log.
Reaching an injury settlement removes Dobson from injured reserve, allowing him to immediately sign with any team other than the Cardinals.
After missing the first three outings of the preseason, Dobson totaled 39 offensive snaps across the Cardinals' final two exhibitions, yet he gathered in just one of five passes for 13 yards. He also hasn't recorded a catch since the 2015 season, so sticking around the Arizona desert is a bit of a shock.
Dobson missed the first two preseason games with this hamstring injury, and he was expected to return Saturday since he practiced in full Tuesday. The 2013 second-round pick doesn't have an overly-impressive resume to fall back on, so proving himself in preseason is essential to making the 53-man roster in Arizona.
Dobson sat out last Saturday's preseason game and multiple practices due to his injured hamstring, but that appears to be a thing of the past. He's be expected to play in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Bears.
Dobson (hamstring) has been ruled out of Saturday's preseason game against the Raiders.
Dobson has been out a couple weeks with a hamstring injury. It isn't clear when he'll be back.
