The Arizona Cardinals have claimed Pharoh Cooper off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams.

The Rams waived the return man on Tuesday and he could now play against them on Sunday.

"They're getting a great competitor, a tough football player. He has great instincts when the ball is in his hands, a hard worker. We think the world of him here," Sean McVay said.

The Rams waived Cooper to open a spot to sign C.J. Anderson, who was added as insurance with Todd Gurley dealing with a knee injury.

"Really, it wasn't anything that Pharoh didn't do. It was more a result of just a numbers deal, where two of our three running backs on the active roster were banged up, and we had to create a spot. That's really a big added bonus, and I wish him nothing but the best," McVay said.
