Arizona Cardinals OTAs: Jeff King missing workouts after knee surgery

Christian Petersen

The team hopeful that he will be ready in June

For the second year in a row, the Arizona Cardinals will be without tight end Jeff King during OTAs because of an injury. In 2012, he missed time and even started training camp on the preseason PUP list (physically unable to perform) after he had a quadriceps injury that required surgery.

He again is hurt, according to AZcentral reporter Kent Somers. He had knee surgery in the offseason and the coaching staff hopes that he will be available in June.

King played in all 16 games last season, starting 12. He caught 17 passes but did not score a touchdown. 2013 will be his eighth season in the NFL. It will be his third year with the Cardinals. He is in the final year of the three-year contract he signed in 2011.
