Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Jumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Ward was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster both of the Cardinals' last two games, only for him to revert back to the practice squad afterward. Teams can only exercise this right two times with players, so Arizona is bringing Ward up to the active roster to serve as a regular on special teams. When it comes to offense, Ward likely needs an injury to one of Kenyan Drake or Chase Edmonds to get on the field otherwise.

Jonathan Ward: Back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward reverted back to Arizona's practice squad Monday according to the NFL transaction log.

Ward played 11 special-teams snaps and recorded an assisted tackle in Week 4 against the Panthers. It marked the second consecutive game that Ward was active, though if he is called back up from the practice squad, he must remain on the roster for the remainder of the campaign.

Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Jumps to active roster

The Cardinals elevated Ward to the active roster Saturday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

For a second straight week, Ward has bumped up from the practice squad. He played exclusively on special teams Week 3 and likely will handle a similar workload Sunday against the Panthers.

Jonathan Ward: Reverts to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward was reverted back to the practice squad Monday after playing 14 special-teams snaps in Sunday's loss to the Lions, Mason Kern of SI.com reports.

Teams can promote players from the practice squad and send them back down twice this season, and this was Ward's first reversion. The running back is buried deep down the depth chart, so he's unlikely to see much playing time on offense even if he gets called back up to the 53-man roster.

Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Added to roster before Week 3 game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward was added to Arizona's 53-man roster Saturday, Alex Weiner of SI.com reports.

There's a good chance Ward still ends up inactive on game day against the Lions, as the Cardinals have the one-two punch of Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmonds, as well as seventh-rounder Eno Benjamin, on the roster at the running back position ahead of Ward.

Jonathan Ward: Gets chance on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Ward to the practice squad Sunday, Tadd Haislop of SportingNews.com reports.

The undrafted rookie out of Central Michigan spent the offseason in Arizona. Though he wasn't able to carve out a spot on the initial regular-season roster, he could end up being called upon as an emergency option down the road.

Cardinals' Jonathan Ward: Heading to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward has signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

During four seasons at Central Michigan, Ward had an up-and-down career, reaching 1,000 rushing yards in both 2017 and 2019 while combining for 412 yards on the ground in 2016 and 2018. Issues with fumbles -- he had seven in his last two seasons, losing six -- and pass protection seem to be to blame, but Ward does bring versatility as a pass catcher to the pro ranks, posting 98 receptions for 909 yards in 42 games. He'll seemingly compete with D.J. Foster for what could be the final RB spot on the Cardinals' roster.
