Bertrand Berry says Jared Veldheer could make or break the Arizona Cardinals season

Other than Carson Palmer, Bertrand Berry says an injury to the left tackle could send the team packing.

Everyone knows that if the Arizona Cardinals quarterback takes a tumble - you can kiss their 2016 Super Bowl dreams goodbye. But if any other player got injured, would it make or break the team?

The Cardinals flagship radio station, Arizona Sports 98.7 FM allowed listeners to send in questions via Twitter for Bertrand Berry using the hashtag #AskBTrain. The former Cardinals defensive end hosts Off the Edge with B-Train, Monday thru Friday from 10:00am - 2:00pm.

After listening to the fear of Palmer's injury talk during the entire 2015 season, I decided to see if injury of any other player would pave or destroy the Cardinals road to the Super Bowl. I tweeted in on Wednesday with the question below:

After a few silly questions including B-Train's laughing about the Denny Green Monday Night meltdown, the social media strategist asked my question. It took B-Train a while but the name he came up with was Jared Veldheer.

Why Veldheer? He believes Veldheer is a "top notch left tackle". B-Train predicts that the absence of Veldheer would shake up the running game and Palmer.

On the other end, there has been a lot of talk about how Veldheer is playing as of recent and still has yet to make a Pro-Bowl. For me, Tyrann Mathieu was the first player to come to mind.

Luckily for the Cardinals fans reading this, Veldheer has played in every game since coming to the desert from Oakland in 2014 and looks to be healthy and hungry for 2016. In the case Veldheer goes down, it would likely be the 2015 first round draft pick, D.J. Humphries takes his place.

You can give the entire #AskBTrain segment from Wednesday a listen here.

Do you agree with B-Train? Can Veldheer make or break the Cardinals? When you heard the question did someone else come to mind or do you think Palmer is the only one that can break the Cards? Comment below what you think!
