The offensive line woes keep pouring in.

It seems that Cardinals backup tackle and versatile offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges is headed to the injured reserve list. He announced on Twitter that he tore a ligament in his left thumb that will require surgery and put him out for the whole season.

To cope with the loss, the Cardinals brought in a former member of the Dallas Cowboys for a tryout.

First, here was the tweet from Bridges:

Although he was never anything spectacular on the line, he brought an edge and an understanding of the scheme with him. He was always solid and did well at all positions along the line. His versatility is a reason why the team has kept him around for so long.

So if D'Anthony Batiste fails or gets injured at left tackle, the options are even more limited now. That is why the team have Pat McQuistan a workout, according to Adam Schefter.

McQuistan spent the offseason with the Cowboys and was released last Thursday. You may know his brother, Paul McQuistan, who currently plays for the Seattle Seahawks.

Pat, like Bridges, can play both tackle and guard along the offensive line. If signed, he would provide depth along a very shaky front five and if called upon. From what I have read, he is a very competitive tackle that plays until the whistle blows and has good strength. Again, he sounds just like Bridges.

We will see if he ends up getting signed, but at this point, the Cards need to sign somebody.
