The Arizona Cardinals announced 13 roster moves Monday as the deadline to trim their roster to 75 players fast approaches. 

The Cards waived injured quarterback Jake Coker, an undrafted rookie who was dealing with an injury. They also released guard Jake Bernstein, wide receivers Amir Carlisle and Franky Okafor, tight end Gerald Christian, tackle Clay Debord, long snapper Daniel Dillon, defensive tackle Iosia Iosia, cornerbacks Asa Jackson and Shaun Prater, punter Garrett Swanson and safety Tyrequek Zimmerman.

Arizona also placed cornerback Mike Jenkins on injured reserve. Jenkins suffered a season-ending ACL injury during Sunday's preseason game at the Houston Texans.

The Cardinals' roster now stands at 77 players. They're required to reduce that number to 75 by 1 p.m. Arizona time on Tuesday.

All NFL teams are required to trim their roster to 53 players before regular-season play begins.
