The Arizona Cardinals have waived kicker Mike Nugent in order to make room for defensive end Jason Banks, who was promoted from the team’s practice squad.
The move was possible because regular kicker Neil Rackers is expected to return Sunday from a groin muscle pull. He has missed the last two games.
Banks was on the practice squad for the previous six weeks. He was with the team during training camp before being waived/injured with a knee issue. He is fully healthy now.
