The injury-riddled defensive line for the Arizona Cardinals has received massive support today.

According to Cardinals senior writer Darren Urban on X (formerly Twitter), Leki Fotu has been activated to the 53-man roster for the final game on Arizona’s schedule against the Seattle Seahawks tomorrow.

A week ago, Fotu had his 21-day practice window opened, returning from of a hand injury for the first time since Nov. 21.

This comes after the Cardinals announced Dante Stills will be out for tomorrow’s game with a knee injury, effectively cutting his season short.

Additionally, Stills joined an extensive list of injured defensive linemen for the Cardinals including L.J. Collier (bicep), Jonathan Ledbetter (knee) and Carlos Watkins (bicep).

Before suffering his injury against the Houston Texan on Nov. 19, Fotu played in 10 games and started nine. He had 2.5 sacks and 25 tackles this season before being ruled out.

Fotu will be lined up alongside Roy Lopez, Phil Hoskins, Ben Stille and Naquan Jones on the defensive line when they face Seattle. Stille was promoted to the active roster after spending time on Arizona’s practice squad since May 10.
