Wheeler dealt with a foot injury throughout training camp, but still made it through to the 53-man roster. However, the team let him go prior to their Week 1 game against the Lions.

Wheeler (foot) is expected to miss another week, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wheeler suffered the foot injury early in camp and has yet to fully recover from the issue. When healthy, the veteran inside linebacker figures to rejoin a group that's temporarily without Deone Bucannon (ankle), opening up some preseason reps with the first-team defense. In the meantime, rookie first-round pick Haason Reddick will likely receive most of those opportunities.

Wheeler signed with Arizona on Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old veteran only recorded 22 tackles in 16 games last season, so expect a limited role out of him in 2017. His veteran experience will be beneficial to the Cardinals, yet he likely won't receive enough snaps at inside linebacker to become fantasy relevant.
