The Arizona Cardinals, according to Tuesday’s NFL transaction report, have protected four players on the practice squad from being signed by another team during Week 15. Who are those players?

They are:

  • K Mike Nugent

  • TE Seth DeValve

  • DL Michael Dogbe

  • CB Jace Whittaker

Nugent and DeValve were the team’s two practice squad elevations for Sunday’s game. Kicker Zane Gonzalez suffered a back injury late last week and was unable to play. His status is currently uncertain for this week, so the Cardinals want to ensure they have a kicker on the roster for their contest in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Nugent made all four of his field-goal attempts against the New York Giants and both of his extra points.

DeValve has been protected two weeks in a row and elevated to be the team’s third tight end for game days.

Dogbe and Whittaker both have played this season as well. With Jordan Phillps reinjuring his hamstring, the Cardinals might need Dogbe this weekend. Phillips has already been ruled out for this week.
