Amerson (concussion) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Amerson sustained a concussion during a Week 15 loss to the Falcons, but has managed to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time to suit up versus the Rams. Expect the veteran cornerback to draw his usual start opposite Patrick Peterson (illness).
Amerson recorded one solo tackle before his injury forced Brandon Williams to play cornerback for the first time all season, according to Urban. Dontae Johnson, Quinten Rollins and Leonard Johnson would be candidates to fill in if Amerson misses time.
Amerson was signed and subsequently released by the Cardinals last week, though Arizona had plans to bring him back. They made that happen Tuesday, and Amerson figures to provide secondary depth behind Patrick Peterson and Brandon Williams.
Amerson was released by the Cardinals on Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Amerson signed with Arizona earlier in the week, but was let go as the team needed to add depth at kicker and defensive end. Urban indicates the 26-year-old could re-sign with the team next week, depending on the injury situation.
Amerson signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs this offseason but failed to make the 53-man roster before the beginning of the regular season. The 26-year-old has logged previous stints with the Redskins and Raiders, recording 18 tackles and four passes defensed across six games in Oakland last season. For now, he'll be viewed as a depth option in Arizona's secondary.
