2013 NFL Free Agents: Joshua Cribbs fails physical, may still sign with Arizona Cardinals later

CHirs Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The receiver/kick returner had knee surgery and it is not yet completely healed.

Just when you thought the Arizona Cardinals were going to land receiver/kick returner Joshua Cribbs, there has been yet another setback. According to his agent, J.R Rickert, who spoke to USA Today writer Mike Garafolo and AZcentral writer Kent Somers, Cribbs had knee surgery not too long ago to repair a meniscus. That knee has apparently not yet completely healed. This is why Cribbs did not sign a contract as expected on Monday.

Rickert did say that Cribbs could take another physical in about five weeks and would sign then if his knee checks out.

There is the risk that he could go sign with another team in the meantime, but based on the tepid interest at best around the league, this looks unlikely.

Without a deal, it forced Cribbs to rehab on his own. He will not be able to use the team's facilities until he is signed and a member of the team.
