Hodgins on IR
TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals placed running back Marcel Shipp and fullback James Hodgins on injured reserve Wednesday and claimed running back Aveion Cason and defensive tackle Shaun Smith off waivers.
Shipp broke his left leg and ankle in an Aug. 6 training camp scrimmage in Flagstaff and will miss the entire season. He played in all 16 games for the Cardinals last year, starting 11, and rushed for 830 yards.
Hodgins has been sidelined all preseason by a shoulder injury.
Both Cason and Smith were waived Tuesday by Dallas.
Cason played in 10 games last season for the Cowboys and rushed 40 times for 220 yards with two touchdowns.
Smith, an undrafted rookie free agent, spent all of last season on Dallas' practice squad.
Re: Hodgins on IR
Did Hodgins injure his shoulders in a preseason game or in camp? I can't remember.
