    The Arizona Cardinals on Friday, Dec. 5 released RB Michael Bush and TE Matthew Mulligan , while LB Matt Shaughnessy (knee) was activated from the short-term Reserve/Injured list. Also, RB Kerwynn Williams has been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.

    Huddle Up: So Bush's short stay with the Cards will end without a touch, whittling the list of likely Week 14 replacements for the injured Andre Ellington to Stepfan Taylor and Marion Grice.

    Arizona Cardinals RB Michael Bush fits the role of a big, bruising ball carrier who can be effective in the red zone and at the goal line, and head coach Bruce Arians is hoping Bush can fill the role that RB Jonathan Dwyer had. 'We really miss John,' Arians said. 'I like our backs but we need a guy that's going to pound it in there and close out some games in short yardage and goal-line situations,' Arians said. Bush has 12 touchdowns on 26 goal-line carries in his career. Arians said Bush is in 'great shape' after not having played this year.

    Huddle Up: It certainly sounds like Bush will immediately be supplanting Stepfan Taylor as the Cards' short-yardage/change-of-pace back. Meanwhile, it's not good news but it's far from crippling for Andre Ellington's owners as he'll still be counted heavily as a pass-catcher and a big-play back without playing to his weaknesses by repeatedly running him the gut.

    The Arizona Cardinals signed free-agent RB Michael Bush (Bears) and cut RB Kerwynn Williams Tuesday, Nov. 25.

    Huddle Up: The Cards' running game has slumped of late, and Bush could definitely see some carries as the big back in the rotation.
