Former Georgia specialist elevated to active roster for Thursday Night Football game
The last time we saw kicker Rodrigo Blankenship in an NFL game he missed a 42-yard kick in overtime that would have won the season opener for the Indianapolis Colts.
Since then “Hot Rod” has been patiently waiting for another opportunity and he’ll get it Thursday night with the Arizona Cardinals, just two days after being signed to the team’s practice squad.
The Cardinals have placed WR Marquise Brown and G Justin Pugh on IR. Brown is now out for at least 4 games.
OL Cody Ford has been activated from IR and K Rodrigo Blankenship has been elevated from the practice squad.
