Cardinals place TE Maxx Williams (knee) on IR

Arizona Cardinals tight end Maxx Williams was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

The move appears to be a formaility. Williams is expected to miss the remainder of the season after sustaining a gruesome knee injury during the Cardinals’ 17-10 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

“You never want to see that happen to a brother of yours and the way that kind of unfolded for him is very unfortunate,” Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray said earlier in the week. “Having a really, really good season and then just making a play and football happens. You can’t change it, you can’t really do anything.”

Williams, 27, had 16 catches for 193 yards and one touchdown in five games this season. He has 102 receptions for 994 yards and six scores in 72 career games with the Baltimore Ravens (2015-18) and Cardinals.

The remaining tight ends on Arizona’s roster have yet to record a catch this season.

Defensive back/special teams player Ezekiel Turner also was placed on IR Wednesday with a shoulder injury. Turner, 25, has four tackles — all on special teams — in five games this season.

Also on Wednesday, the Cardinals signed rookie safety James Wiggins off the practice squad and designated defensive lineman Jordan Phillips and offensive lineman Joshua Miles to return from injured reserve.
