The Cardinals announced that G Mike Iupati has been taken to a hospital with a neck injury.
Cardinals veteran G Mike Iupati was taken off the field in an ambulance after he sustained what appeared to be a neck injury.
Iupati was blocking Seahawks S Kam Chancellor when neck compressed, dropping him to the field. It’s worth mentioning that Iupati was able to move his extremities, which is always a good sign.
Iupati, 28, was a big free agent acquisition for the Cardinals during the offseason. He signed a five-year, $40 million contract that $22.5 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $1.5 million (2015), $4.5 million (2016), $8 million (2017), and $7.75 million ( 2018-2019)
He has been limited to appearing in five games due to a knee injury. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 16 guard out of 81 qualifying players.
