Cardinals sign Mike Gibson in wake of losing Rich Ohrnberger for the season

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Another center down, the Cardinals have decided to go with former Seattle Seahawk Mike Gibson to replace Rich Ohrnberger, who was placed on IR with a season-ending knee injury.

Just a quick tad of news for you this morning...

The Arizona Cardinals were forced to place C/G Rich Ohrnberger with a knee injury following Sunday's big loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Ohrnberger left the game in the second half and became the second center the Cardinals have lost to a season-ending knee injury. Replacing him was undrafted rookie Scott Wedige, whom the Cards recently picked up off of the Begnals' practice squad. Wedige spent training camp with the Cards, so it wasn't as if there was a complete unfamiliarity.

Given how fast offensive linemen have been dropping as of late, it would make sense that the Cardinals would sign another player to come in. That is why Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly is reporting that the Cardinals signed OG/C Mike Gibson on Tuesday. Gibson most recently played for the Seattle Seahawks, the team that manhandled the Cards on Sunday.

Here is the tweet from Edholm:

It will be interesting to see if Wedige continues to start at center for the remainder of the season. Like one of the players he is replacing, Wedige's undrafted status has not held him back thus far and due to some untimely injuries, he may get a chance to show he deserves a roster spot next season. However, Gibson's versatility and veteran status give him an advantage as well. My guess would be that Wedige keeps the job.

No matter who becomes the starting center, let us just hope that they can stay healthy. The Cardinals can ill-afford to lose another lineman.
