Arizona puts Ware on injured reserve, signs kickerPosted: Updated:
TEMPE -- The Arizona Cardinals have placed safety Matt Ware on injured reserve and signed kicker Mike Nugent.
Ware is a backup who has played in "nickel" defense situations. He injured his right knee in Monday night's 23-9 loss at San Francisco.
He is in his sixth NFL season, the last four with Arizona.
Nugent was signed because Neil Rackers has been bothered by a groin injury.
Nugent was released by Tampa Bay on Oct. 5 after he missed two field goals in a 16-13 loss to Washington.
He signed with the Buccaneers as a free agent after four seasons with the New York Jets.
