TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona Cardinals starting cornerback Eric Green is out for the rest of the season with a groin tear, and the team released punter Mike Barr on Tuesday.
Green was hurt in the first half of Sunday's 37-31 overtime loss to San Francisco. A third-round draft pick out of Virginia Tech in 2005, Green had 51 tackles this season, including 47 solo stops.
He is the fourth Arizona starter to go on injured reserve, joining quarterback Matt Leinart, defensive end Bertrand Berry and offensive tackle Oliver Ross.
Antrel Rolle and Ralph Brown are the backup cornerbacks.
Barr was inconsistent all season. He had a punt blocked earlier this year and shanked a 17-yarder during a critical point in overtime Sunday. His line-drive punt led to a 51-yard return by the 49ers' Michael Lewis.
Barr also was the holder for kicker Neil Rackers. Wide receiver Sean Morey is listed as the backup holder.
Barr was picked up on waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers shortly before the team released Scott Player, Arizona's punter for nine seasons. Barr had not kicked in an NFL game before this season.
The team also released tight end Tim Euhus and re-signed defensive end Bo Schobel.
Schobel has been signed, then released, by the Cardinals each of the past two weeks.
