TEMPE, AZ (AP) -

The Arizona Cardinals have elevated inside linebacker Scooby Wright from the practice squad and released outside linebacker Philip Wheeler.

Wright lost out in a competition for a backup role and was released in Arizona's final roster cut, then re-signed to the practice squad.

With Deone Bucannon missing the opener with an ankle injury, the Cardinals were down to three inside linebackers - Karlos Dansby, Haason Reddick and Josh Bynes - before activating Wright.

Wright, a standout player at the University of Arizona, was a seventh-round draft pick by Cleveland a year ago and appeared in three games for the Cardinals last season after joining the team from the Browns practice squad.
