Lyle Sendlein out for the season, Scott Wedige re-signed to take his spot

Christian Petersen

With Cardinals center Lyle Sendlein out for the season with a torn MCL, the team has re-signed former training camp participant, Scott Wedige to the active roster.

By now you may or may not have heard about the news regarding Cardinals starting center, Lyle Sendlein. Sendlein tore his MCL in the first quarter of the game against the Rams and will now require season ending surgery to repair it. Aside from the fact that Sendlein miraculously played through such an injury, the Arizona Cardinals are now left with a big gap along the offensive line.

To help fill that hole, the team promptly signed Scott Wedige from the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad. You may recall that Wedige spent time with the Cards during training camp before the season began. Since then, he has been a member of the Giants and the Bengals.

Whether Wedige takes the starting role is unknown. At this point, I would assume that either Daryn Colledge or Adam Snyder are shuffled over and Rich Ohrnberger takes the vacant guard spot. Both Snyder and Colledge have experience playing the center position.

What they may not have as much of is the leadership and adjustment ability that Sendlein possessed. The team captain was seen making pre-snap reads and changing protection schemes constantly. Can Colledge or Snyder manage to do the same?

One thing is for sure: the Cardinals now have more questions to answer than they did just two days ago. But at this point, I am not sure Sendlein's injury even matters. This season has already come completely derailed. One more offensive line injury may not even have an effect.
