The O'Brien Schofield era has officially begun. The linebacker, drafted in April by the Arizona Cardinals, has been nursing an injured knee since pre-Senior Bowl practice in January and was activated on Saturday in time for tomorrow's game against the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Linebacker Gerald Hayes was removed from the physically unable to perform list and is also expected to play on Sunday. In order to activate both players, the Cards cut wide receiver Onrea Jones and linebacker Alex Hall.
Not a real surprise to see Jones or Hall go. Jones was caught up in a numbers game with the reactivation of receivers Steve Breaston and Early Doucet. Jones never really worked his way up the depth chart after training camp.
