Armbrister was released by the Cardinals on Wednesday, per the league's official transaction log.
Armbrister joined the Cardinals last November but he only appeared in one regular-season game with the team before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. He'll now get a head start to find a new team ahead of the 2019 campaign.
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.
Armbrister (undisclosed) signed to 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 2015-2016, 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.
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.
