The Arizona Cardinals are shaking things up along the offensive line during their bye week. Nate Potter will replace D'Anthony Batiste  at left tackle moving forward. Potter played well once he replaced Batiste during the Packers game last Sunday.

The Red Birds have had one of the poorest offensive lines this season and need to make a change – they've allowed more sacks than any team in the NFL and are hoping Potter can protect quarterback John Skelton's blind side.

Potter is a 6-foot-5, 295-pound rookie from Boise State. He was a seventh round draft pick in April's NFL Draft.

In other news, expect to see a little more of rookie wide receiver Michael Floyd after the bye. The first round selection out of Notre Dame has played much better the last two games with 10 receptions for 116 yards during that span. He is a strong, athletic player and Skelton seems to be gaining more confidence in him as the season progresses.

For the season, Floyd has 18 catches for 207 yards and one touchdown (vs. Philadelphia).
