Redding Placed on IR

The team announced they promoted inside linebacker Gabe Martin to fill Redding's roster spot.
Redding Dealt With Injury-Plagued Season
It's been an uncharacteristic 2015 for the 13-year veteran, who had not missed more than three games in a single season dating back to 2004. He also had recorded at least 20 combined tackles and a sack in each of those years, which included stints with the Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens and Indianapolis Colts.
This season, though, Redding has been plagued by ankle problems that kept him on the sideline in Weeks 11, 12, 13 and 15.
Even with his limited time on the field, the defensive end wasn't short on big plays in 2015, including a fumble recovery he scooped up for a touchdown during the Cardinals' 38-8 drubbing of the Green Bay Packers during Week 16 and a one-handed interception of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford in Week 5.
The NFL shows Redding's touchdown return against the Packers:

A timetable for a possible recovery has not been disclosed yet, but Redding will have to wait until next season to get back on the field.
