With Jonathan Cooper breaking his leg in the third preseason game versus the San Diego Chargers and being out possibly for the whole season and on injured reserve, the Arizona Cardinals are giving offensive tackle Nate Potter a look at offensive guard according to Kent Somers of AZCentral Sports.

Potter was drafted in the seventh round of 2012 NFL Draft out of Boise State. Last season with the Cardinals, Potter played in eight games and started in six of them. Supposedly, Potter has the chance to be an upgrade over current starter Daryn Colledge. But the thing with Colledge is that ever since he been in the league, he has been a starter. In two seasons with the Cardinals, he played and started in all 32 games.

Colledge was drafted in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers in the second round. So before Sunday’s game versus St. Louis, there could be a change in the Cardinals’ offensive line.
