The Arizona Cardinals now have lost two players in a week to season ending knee injuries.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that linebacker Jeremy Cash is out for the year due to a knee injury:
#AZCardinals LB Jeremy Cash, who was carted off last night, suffered a knee injury that appears to be season-ending, per @MikeGarafolo & me. He’s having tests to determine the full extend, but that’s the initial read. Rough blow for Cash, who was in strong contention for the 53.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 12, 2018
This is a big blow for the Arizona Cardinals who were already thin at the linebacker position behind the expected starters of Haason Reddick, Josh Bynes and Deone Bucannon.
Cash was getting some burn last night with the starters as Bucannon and Bynes rested some ailments.
Cash made a couple great plays last night, including a scoop and score touchdown after Bene Benwikere caused a fumble.
Now, the Cardinals will be back in the market for a linebacker, something they already were looking into.
For Cash, this is a bad break after fighting to make a roster for the first couple seasons of his career, getting playing time in only nine game over the last two seasons. He seemed to have found a niche with the Cardinals heading into 2018.
Now, it’s back to the drawing board for the Cardinals and a long, hard rehab for Cash.
Good luck and good health to you Jeremy Cash.
