The Arizona Cardinals officially announced that they have placed DL Darnell Dockett on season-ending injured reserve after he suffered a torn ACL earlier this week.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
Dockett was set to undergo an MRI on his knee after he had to be carted off the field.
The Cardinals have Frostee Rucker listed as Dockett’s backup on their depth chart, but there is no question that this would be a big loss for Arizona.
Dockett, 33, is entering the fifth year of his six-year, $56 million contract that included $30 million guaranteed. He will make a base salary of $5.5 million this year.
Last season, Dockett appeared in 16 games and recorded 46 tackles to go along with 4.5 sacks.
We’ll have more regarding Dockett as the news is available.
