Thurston Armbrister: Sent packing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals released Armbrister on Wednesday.

Armbrister joined the Cardinals last November but only appeared in one regular-season game with the team before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring issue. He'll now get a head start on finding a new team ahead of the 2019 campaign.

Cardinals' Thurston Armbrister: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armbrister (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Armbrister was inactive for the two games he spent on Arizona's 53-man roster, and now lands on season-ending injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Jonathan Anderson will take Armbrister's spot on the Cardinals' active roster.

Cardinals' Thurston Armbrister: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Armbrister off their practice squad Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Armbrister's opportunity to join the 53-man roster comes with Deone Bucannon (chest) and Haason Reddick (neck) nursing significant injuries, and Josh Bynes (thumb) on injured reserve. It remains to be seen how the fourth-year pro will be used in Arizona's defense, but it seems likely that Armbrister will take most of his snaps on special teams.

Thurston Armbrister: Joins Arizona's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armbrister (undisclosed) signed with the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Armbrister has bounced around quite a bit since entering the league in 2015. The Miami product appeared in 30 games from 2015 to 2016, but did not play during the 2017 season. It remains to be seen how the 25-year-old will be used, if at all, in Arizona.

Thurston Armbrister: Waived from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants waived Armbrister (undisclosed) from injured reserve Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Armbrister was reverted to IR after clearing waivers in late August. The 25-year-old defensive tackle has 30 games under his belt but hasn't appeared in a contest since 2016, when he posted 15 tackles for the Lions.

Giants' Thurston Armbrister: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armbrister (undisclosed) cleared waivers Tuesday and shifted to injured reserve.

It's unclear what Armbrister is dealing with. If he reaches an injury settlement with the Giants, Armbrister will be able to sign elsewhere. He'd likely be limited to a special teams role in such a scenario, as the 24-year-old hasn't played an NFL snap since 2016.

Thurston Armbrister: Drops to waivers with injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants waived/injured Armbrister (undisclosed) on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Armbrister hasn't played an NFL snap since 2016, when he suited up for 14 games with the Lions and made 15 tackles. If the 24-year-old clears waivers, he'll revert to the Giants' injured reserve and await a possible injury settlement, which would allow him to sign elsewhere.

Giants' Thurston Armbrister: Out with injury Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armbrister will not suit up for Friday's preseason game against the Lions due to an undisclosed injury.

Armbrister last saw the field with Detroit in 2016, appearing in all 16 games. However, he was waived by the Lions last season and never found a home. He likely sits on the outside looking in for a 53-man roster spot this preseason as well, so missing time with an injury doesn't help his chances.

Lions' Thurston Armbrister: Waived by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions waived Armbrister on Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

After appearing in 14 games -- mostly in a special teams role -- for the Lions in 2016, Armbrister had failed to see the field through the team's first five contests of the current season. With head coach Jim Caldwell apparently having no visions of including Armbrister on the game day roster anytime soon, the third-year linebacker was let go to clear up a spot for defensive end Datone Jones, who was signed following a workout with the Lions.

Armbrister was signed to the Lions' 53-man roster Saturday, Mike Rothstein of reports.

Armbrister has resided on the Lions' practice squad since being waived at the close of the preseason. The 23-year-old will likely only serve as a reserve linebacker and special teams player for the Lions.

Thurston Armbrister: Signed to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Armbrister was signed to the Lions' practice squad, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

The Lions are likely keeping Armbrister on hold in case injuries hit their linebacking corps.
