The Arizona Cardinals released TE Kyle Auffray and RB William Powell, and waived-injured WR Mike Rios Tuesday, July 23.
Huddle Up: Powell's departure leaves the Cardinals with Rashard Mendenhall, Ryan Williams, and Stepfan Taylor battling for carries.

Arizona Cardinals special teams coach Amos Jones indicated RB William Powell will be the team's main kick returner this season. "He's a downhill runner and I like downhill running," Jones said. "Our scheme is conducive to that. It's kinda one of those situations where the guy that can get the ball quick, tuck it quick, catch it going forward is probably the guy who's going to come out of that thing in the lead."
Huddle Up: Pencil Powell in for a bump in stats if your fantasy league includes return stats. He'll be hard-pressed to take significant touches away from Rashard Mendenhall, but he's in line for a bunch of kickoff returns.
