It has been an awful season when it comes to injuries for the Arizona Cardinals.
Before the game started, they have already lost starters:
And expected contributors:
As well as two young guys in Ronald Zamort and Daniel Munyer.
Well, it may be even worse after the Thursday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks.
After the game, Bruce Arians spoke to the media and had an ominous message:
Humphries has ACL probably, per BA. Momah cracked ankle. Branch a knee too. No news there— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) November 10, 2017
Arians went on to say that he could see all three ending up on the IR for the season.
Arians: Humphries ACL, Branch knee, Momah “cracked ankle.” All three could head to IR.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) November 10, 2017
If the Cardinals lose Humphries, it will mark the third year in his three year career where he has failed to finish the season. The first season was a redshirt year, last year he missed because of a concussion and now a knee this year. That is awful, awful luck.
Yet, it almost pales in comparison to the Tyvon Branch story, who could finish 2017 on the injured reserve. It would be Branch’s fourth time in his career finishing his season on IR, 2013, 2014 and 2016 were all years Branch finished the season on IR.
Not to be left out, Ifeanyi Momah could finish the season on IR as well, for the third straight season...
It was one of those nights in Glendale for the Arizona Cardinals.
They not only lost the game, but lost some key pieces, maybe for the season.
