TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Cardinals have released kicker Mike Nugent and added defensive end Jason Banks to the active roster.

Banks has spent the past six weeks with the Cardinals' practice squad after re-signing with the team Nov. 24. He was in training camp with the Cardinals before being placed on injured reserve in early August.

Nugent was signed because Neil Rackers has been bothered by a groin injury. He was released by Tampa Bay on Oct. 5 after he missed two field goals in a 16-13 loss to Washington.
