The Arizona Cardinals released tackle Desmond Harrison on Wednesday after police in North Carolina issued a warrant for his arrest on assault charges. The Greensboro Police Department says the alleged assault was reported on Tuesday. Police say the investigation has just begun and no additional details are available, including when the alleged assault occurred.

The 25-year-old Harrison was claimed last month by the Cardinals after he was cut by the Cleveland Browns. Harrison also attended Texas, where he was suspended from the team several times. He signed with the Browns and started eight games last season before being benched. The Browns released him after he missed the first day of their minicamp in early June.
