Analysis: Baylis has spent the entire season with the Cardinals, up and down between the 53-man roster and the practice squad. He's seen action in two games, logging 12 snaps on offense and 16 snaps on special teams over that span. Baylis could be called upon for Thursday's game against the Seahawks, as Maxx Williams and Darrell Daniels are both questionable for the contest with ankle injuries.

Baylis was promoted to the Cardinals' active roster from the practice squad, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old was elevated from the practice squad as an extra player for Week 5 and played five offensive snaps, but he officially signed to the active roster ahead of Monday's matchup with the Cowboys. Baylis could be used as an extra blocker at tight end, though he figures to have a minor role with Darrell Daniels, Dan Arnold and Jordan Thomas all healthy.

Evan Baylis: Relegated to practice squad

Baylis has reverted to Arizona's practice squad after suiting up for Sunday's 30-10 win against the Jets, per the NFL's transaction log.

Analysis: The 26-year-old tight end was called up for a one-game appearance on the active roster, fielding four offensive snaps and nine special-teams snaps during the win over New York. Baylis has made seven regular-season appearances for three different teams since 2017, but it does not seem that his latest stint will become any sort of enduring trend based on the Cardinals' latest transaction.

Evan Baylis: Promoted before MNF

Evan Baylis: Misses practice Sunday

Baylis was sidelined during Sunday's practice due to a calf injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Analysis: It's unclear how Baylis picked up the injury, but considering he's battling for a spot on the roster, it's serious enough to hold him out of practice. The Oregon product caught his only target for 12 yards during Thursday's preseason victory over the Texans. Expect the team to monitor his status on a daily basis.
