by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (Achilles) reverted to injured reserve on Wednesday.

Martin was waived Tuesday after sustaining an Achilles injury last week, per The Arizona Republic. While it isn't clear if he fully ruptured the tendon, Martin is likely stuck on injured reserve through the end of the league year unless he reaches an injury settlement with Arizona.

Gabe Martin: Hits waivers with injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (undisclosed) was waived by the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

The 25-year-old linebacker suited up for Arizona in 11 games over the last two seasons, and he recorded six tackles (four solo) and one fumble recovery. Once Martin can shake his injury designation, he'll look for a depth role with a new team.

Martin had two solo tackles in three games with Arizona in 2017.

Martin was signed to the Cardinals' 53-man roster in late November off the Saints practice squad and served as a reserve linebacker and special teams player.

Cardinals' Gabe Martin: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins, Bob McManaman of The Arizona Republic reports.

Cardinals' Gabe Martin: Injures hamstring Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin left Sunday's game against the Titans with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Martin just signed less than two weeks ago, and he's only played in one game against the Rams, playing strictly on special teams. Therefore, his absence won't impact the Cardinals' defense.

Cardinals' Gabe Martin: Signs with Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Martin off the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Martin is a familiar face in Arizona. In 2015, he spent the entire season on the practice squad. Last year, he played in eight games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He was eventually released by the Cardinals with an injury settlement in August and has spent the past two months with New Orleans. Upon his return to the desert, Martin will provide depth at inside linebacker due to the ankle injury sustained by starting LB Deone Buccanon.

Saints' Gabe Martin: Signing with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin will sign a contract with the Saints, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Martin was most recently with the Cardinals, playing in eight games last season. However, the linebacker reached an injury settlement with the Cardinals early in the preseason. Now healthy again, Martin will likely be a deep reserve on the Saints defense but could carve out a role for himself on special teams.

Cardinals' Gabe Martin: Continuing to watch from sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (Achilles) will remain on the sidelines for an extended period, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Cardinals' Gabe Martin: Re-ups with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Martin (knee) to a one-year contract Monday, the team's official site reports.

An undrafted free-agent signing in 2015, Martin spent his first season as a professional on the Cardinals' practice squad. He progressed to the 53-man roster at the outset of last season, earning 168 of his 187 snaps on special teams before landing on injured reserve due to a knee injury. If Kevin Minter leaves in free agency, Martin could have a chance to earn more snaps at inside linebacker, but special teams will likely be his domain yet again in the fall.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (knee) has been listed as doubtful on the Cardinals' depth chart, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports reports.
