Cardinals elevate DT Lumpkin from practice squad

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals have elevated defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin from the practice squad and released guard-center Mike Gibson.

Lumpkin spent the entire season on the practice squad after he was re-signed following his release by Arizona at the end of training camp on Aug. 31.

Lumpkin spent his rookie season in 2011 on the Cardinals practice squad after he was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Kentucky.

Arizona carries a nine-game losing streak into its home game Sunday against Detroit.

As for no penalties...not so much.
