After dealing with an injured pelvis for the last month, Mike Gandy's future with the Arizona Cardinals may be in jeopardy. The injury has caused him to miss two games, and leave early against the Titans and 49ers. Last Friday Gandy underwent surgery to repair the sports hernia. His estimated time frame of return is 3-6 weeks, and one would certainly think we won't see him for at least the remainder of the regular season. When asked if Gandy would indeed see the injured reserve, coach Ken Whisenhunt said, "We don't know yet."
In 12 starts this year Gandy has given up 8 sacks, the most since he's been with the Cardinals. He's also committed 8 penalties on the year, with 5 being holds.
With two kickers currently signed to the roster and Matt Ware recently being added to IR, the Cardinals face a dilemma on what to do with Gandy. He's currently in the final year of his contract and made $5 million this season. Jeremy Bridges has been great in the absence of Gandy, and the Cardinals have to be happy considering the playoffs are not far ahead.
