Arizona put lineman Jeremy Bridges on injured reserve with a torn thumb ligament. Bridges is out for the season.
The Cardinals signed Pat McQuistan to a one-year contract. McQuistan is a veteran with seven seasons' worth of experience and provides depth on a battered offensive line.

8/31/12 The Cardinals made their final round of transactions to get down to the 53-man roster.
Offensive lineman Levi Brown (triceps) stayed on injured reserve, ending his season. RB Javarris James (ACL) and QB Richard Bartel (shoulder) were both put on injured reserve.

8/1/12 The Arizona Cardinals signed running back Thomas Clayton and guard Rich Ohrnberger. To make room on the roster, center Ryan Bartholomew and wide receiver Stanley Arukwe were released.
Clayton is a running back to fill a gap for a game or two in the preseason while Beanie Wells and Ryan Williams take it easy in the preseason. Ohrnberger, a third-year lineman from Penn State, spent time with the Patriots and will be competing for a backup role.
7/28/12 The Arizona Cardinals signed guard Russ Hochstein to a one-year deal.
Hochstein will add a veteran presence to an offensive line with three rookies competing for jobs.
