Ever since Mike Leach retired after the 2015 season – following long stretches of Devin Hester Jersey long snapping by Leach, Nate Hodel and Trey Junkin, reaching back into the 1990s – the Cardinals have had trouble keeping a long snapper.

Rookie Kam Canaday washed out last season, so the Cardinals signed veteran Aaron Brewer. Brewer has done well, but when he broke his wrist Sunday in Philadelphia, the Cardinals had to find yet another replacement.

The team officially signed veteran Justin Drescher Tuesday to fill the void. Drescher snapped for the Saints in every game for the past six seasons, before being released with an injury settlement this August after hurting his leg.

His confidence isn’t lacking, and he had the stats to back it Charlie Coyle Youth Jersey up. Edmonds was the Patriot League’s all-time leading rusher, with 5,862 yards, and he had a chance to threaten Ron Dayne’s Division I record of 7,126 had his ankle not kept him out of four games as a senior and hampered him in others.

I’m going to go until I can’t go anymore, Williams said. Pretty much something has to be falling off for me to miss time.

D.J. Foster, Elijhaa Penny and newly-promoted Bronson Hill are the other running backs on the active roster.

I have no clue (who will play), Arians said. We’ve got five of them and four of them practiced. I’m not sure who will be available yet.

Third-round pick Chad Williams has been inactive for most of the season but will get a chance of his own against Jacksonville. The Cardinals have been plagued by inconsistency at wide receiver beyond Larry Fitzgerald over the past few weeks, opening the door for Williams’ opportunity.

He didn’t escape Arians’ wrath in the preseason getting criticized for his conditioning but Williams has been praised by his coach lately. Williams is in lockstep with Arians’ philosophy on rookie timelines.
