Arizona Cardinals' Bertrand Berry Will Not Play Against the Jets

New, comments

Bertrand Berry is headed back to Phoenix after learning that he had a tear in his Bertrand_berry2_mediumgroin. We feared that his injury may be worse than a strain but this is certainly bad news for a guy who has had season ending injuries the past three seasons. Berry was off to a great start with three sacks in the first three games. Coach Whisenhunt said that there is no time table yet for his return. We thought that the return of Chris Harrington might have something to do with Berry's injury and if he's out for an extended amount of time, Harrington should get pulled up to the 53 man roster pretty quickly.

As for this Sunday, Clark Haggans has been working behind Travis LaBoy during practice this week and he'll be the primary backup to LaBoy and Chike Okeafor. While it may not seem to be a big loss, it's worth remembering that Berry was lining up all over the field (OLB, DE and even nose tackle) so far and was consistenty generating a decent pass rush.
