Cardinals Decline To Activate OT Jordan Mills From IR, Despite Designation To Return


The practice period for Cardinals OT Jordan Mills expired on Monday without the team activating him from injured reserve, despite designating him as one of their two players to return. 

Mills will remain on injured reserve for the final two weeks of the season.

Arizona designated Mills to return three weeks ago. 

Mills, 28, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bears back in 2013. He spent two years in Chicago before he was released during roster cuts at the start of the 2015 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Cowboys.

Mills had a brief stint with the Lions before the Bills signed him to their active roster. Buffalo re-signed him to a two-year, $4 million contract back in 2017.

Mills was signed this offseason in free agency by the Dolphins on a one-year, $3 million deal. Miami released him with an injury settlement this offseason and he signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals shortly after. 

In 2018, Mills appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 70 offensive tackle out of 80 qualifying players.
