Arizona Cardinals News: Early Doucet Breaks Ribs, Expected to Miss "At Least" a Couple Weeks

The Arizona Cardinals continue to get bad news on the injury front as we learned today that Early Doucet fractured some ribs high up on his rib cage and is expected to miss at least a couple weeks. The placement of the injury, high on the rib cage, is important because another significant blow to that area before the break is fully healed could result in a punctured lung. This is also another set back for Doucet who's struggling to gain any ground on a roster that's stacked with talent at wide reciever. To his credit though, Whisenhunt did say that Doucet sustained the injury during the second quarter and was able to finish the game.

As long as Doucet's return is somewhere close to two weeks, this injury shouldn't effect the roster decisions that'll be made this Saturday but for a guy like Lance Long, it can't hurt.
