The Arizona Cardinals were expected to sign veteran cornerback Bashaud Breeland to their practice squad a week ago after rookie corner Marco Wilson suffered a shoulder injury. He contracted COVID-19 so that signing did not happen until Tuesday.

Now on the practice squad, the Cardinals included him among the four practice squad players they protected from being signed by any other team.

They once again included two cornerbacks. Here are their four protected players, according to the NFL transaction report on Tuesday.

  • CB Bashaud Breeland

  • G Danny Isidora

  • CB Kevin Peterson

  • LB Tahir Whitehead

Peterson has had to play on defense the last two weeks for the Cardinals. Whitehead is likely protected because Tanner Vallejo, who came back from injured reserve last week, was placed on the COVID list on Tuesday. Whitehead has been elevated to play special teams this season.

Isidora is protected, likely because the Cardinals don’t want to lose him. They don’t seem to have any injuries on the offensive line.

Breeland probably won’t get elevated this week to play but he could be for the playoffs.
