TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals have activated offensive lineman Max Garcia from the physically unable to perform list and placed defensive lineman Clinton McDonald on injured reserve.

The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Garcia signed with the Cardinals in the offseason but has missed the entire season with a knee injury. He spent the past four years with the Denver Broncos, playing in 57 games, including 41 starts.

McDonald had played in all nine games this season as a backup, making eight tackles. The 10-year veteran left Thursday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers with what the team called a stinger.

The team also announced Wednesday that it released linebacker Zach Brown.
