Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Bumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Foster from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday.

Foster looks set to make his sixth straight appearance during Sunday's game against the Eagles. With Chase Edmonds (ankle) listed as questionable, Foster could get an opportunity for expanded reserve duties.

D.J. Foster: Slides back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The 27-year-old appeared in a fifth consecutive game for Arizona during Week 13, though he's garnered only two combined offensive touches in 2020. Foster has seen all of his work on special teams over the past four games, fielding 55 total snaps in that department to zero on the offensive end.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Jumps from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to the active roster Saturday.

Foster is slated to play a fifth straight game with the Cardinals. He hasn't played an offensive snap since Week 9. Instead, he's contributed on special-teams coverage, posting three tackles so far.

D.J. Foster: Moves back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Foster fielded 13 special-teams snaps during Sunday's 20-17 loss to New England, but he again went without involvement on the offensive side. The 27-year-old has been deployed on offense only once in a game all season, generating nine scrimmage yards on two touches Week 9 against Miami. Given that he's been called up to the active roster for four consecutive games, he could very well be back in the mix Week 13 for a matchup against the Rams.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Jumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to the active roster Saturday.

It's an interesting move, as the Cardinals already have four healthy running backs on the roster. The 27-year-old is rarely involved on offense, though, so he'll likely stick to special-teams coverage. Foster has recorded two tackles through five games.

D.J. Foster: Sent back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad after recording one tackle during a 28-21 loss to Seattle on Thursday Night Football, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Foster fielded 17 special-teams snaps during the NFC West clash, but he again went without involvement on the offensive side. Among Foster's five appearances in 2020, he's been utilized on offense only once, fielding five snaps while recording two yards on one carry and one reception for seven yards against Miami in Week 9. He goes back to the practice squad for now, but Foster has been activated for three consecutive contests.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Ascends to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to it's 53-man roster via the practice squad for Thursday's game against Seattle, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Foster was called up to the 53-man roster for the fifth time this season, as he's logged one carry rushing while putting in the rest of his work on special teams. With Kenyan Drake (ankle) expected to suit up Thursday, Foster will likely stick to a special-teams role for Week 11.

D.J. Foster: Heads back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday, Alex Weiner of SI.com reports.

Foster joined cornerback Jace Whittaker in a trip back to the practice squad, after the two were activated for Sunday's thrilling 32-30 win over the Bills. The Arizona State product fielded seven special-teams snaps during the contest, collecting one tackle on punt coverage, but he went unutilized on the offensive side in what was his fourth appearance of 2020.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Brought up to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to the active roster Saturday, Howard Balzer of SI.com reports.

This move hints that Kenyan Drake (ankle) may be on the wrong side of questionable, although coach Kliff Kingsbury maintains that Drake's status will be determined following pregame warmups. Foster likely will stick to special teams regardless of Drake's status.

D.J. Foster: Back down to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad Monday after registering one carry for two yards and one reception for seven yards during Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Dolphins, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The 26-year-old back offered his first offensive contributions of 2020 during Arizona's Week 9 defeat, as Foster had not garnered a single snap on the offensive side over his two other appearances of the season Weeks 1 and 2. It's notable that Foster got the nod over Eno Benjamin for backup RB work against Miami, as Benjamin was a seventh-round selection of the Cardinals in this past April's draft.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Shifts to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to the active roster Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Kenyan Drake (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, so Foster will add experienced depth behind expected workhorse Chase Edmonds, although rookies Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward could have roles as well. Foster, who turns 27 years old this month, has played in 18 NFL games, recording 13 carries for 43 yards and 18 receptions for 135 yards.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Could handle backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury suggested Foster could serve as the Cardinals' No. 2 running back Sunday against the Dolphins, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

With Kenyan Drake (ankle) ruled out, Chase Edmonds figures to get the start and handle a large workload. The Cardinals have rookies Eno Benjamin and Jonathan Ward on their active roster, but it sounds like Kingsbury wants the more experienced Foster to be called up from the practice squad for Sunday. The 26-year-old running back has seen most of his NFL playing time on passing downs and special teams, taking 13 carries for 43 yards and 18 catches for 135 yards in 18 regular-season games.

D.J. Foster: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Foster (quadriceps) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Foster has been hurt for nearly a month, but he'll return to practice and continue working on the scout team. The Cardinals' active roster is set in the backfield, so Foster's chances of receiving a promotion are slim, barring an injury.

D.J. Foster: Placed on practice squad IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was placed on the Cardinals' practice squad injured reserve list Monday due to a quadriceps injury.

Foster played two special-teams snaps in the Cardinals' Week 2 win over Washington before exiting with the injury. He reverted back to the practice squad after the game and will now look to move past the injury before receiving a potential promotion back on the 53-man roster.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Activated to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals elevated Foster to the active roster Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction report.

With KeeSean Johnson on the COVID-19 list, Foster filled the open spot on the 53-man roster. He played strictly in a special-teams role during Week 1's win over the 49ers, and he could handle similar duties in this Sunday's game against Washington.

D.J. Foster: Back to practice roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster has reverted to the Cardinals' practice squad.

Foster was brought up to the active roster for the season opener versus the 49ers, but he stuck to special teams against the divisional foe. The 26-year-old will drop back to the practice squad and fine-tune his craft.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was added to the active roster Saturday.

Foster initially lost out on a roster spot to seventh-round pick Eno Benjamin. However, he landed on the practice squad and now has a chance to serve as depth among the Cardinals' backfield. In 2019, Foster was a special teams player for the team.

September 9, 2020 10:48 PM
D.J. Foster: Garners practice squad spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Foster to the practice squad Sunday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Foster played strictly on special teams over six games with the Cardinals in 2019, and he couldn't beat out rookie seventh-rounder for the No. 3 RB role behind Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds. If an injury surfaces, expect either Foster or Jonathan Ward to get promoted to the active roster.

D.J. Foster: Unable to make 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals cut Foster on Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Foster played strictly on special teams in 2019, so with the Cardinals drafting Eno Benjamin in April, the 26-year-old Foster was let go. The Cardinals only have three running backs on the roster, and there are already injury concerns about Kenyan Drake (foot), so Foster could be a valuable practice squad add.

Cardinals' D.J. Foster: Back in desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) re-signed Wednesday with the Cardinals on a one-year contract.

Foster appeared in six contests with the Cardinals in 2019 prior to sustaining a season-ending hamstring injury. When back to full health, he'll spend the summer competing for a reserve role out of the backfield behind Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds.
