Cardinals Place McCoy on IR, Sign McSorley to 53-Man Roster

The Arizona Cardinals announced on Wednesday that they have placed back up quarterback Colt McCoy on the injured reserve list. He recently sustained a calf injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and will need time to recover.

In his stead, the Cardinals signed Trace McSorley from their practice squad to their 53-man roster. The signal-caller depth chart will now include Kyler Murray and McSorley. The club also recently signed Jarrett Guarantano to the team's practice squad. 

McCoy was drafted as a third-rounder by the Cleveland Browns in 2018 and has started 33 career games. The 36-year-old has played for five teams including; the Browns, San Francisco 49ers, five seasons with the Washington Commanders, the New York Giants, and recently the Cardinals after signing with them in 2021.

He started in three games last season in place of Murray, who was out with an ankle injury, finishing 2-1 respectively. 

The Cardinals begin their season on September, 11th against the Kansas City Chiefs.
