Cards put Levi Brown on IR, cut 12 to get down to 75

Levi Brown’s 2012 season is officially over.

The Cardinals have put Brown on injured reserve, officially ending his season after he suffered a torn triceps. Brown was slated to be the Cardinals’ starting left tackle, so his loss is a tough blow for an offensive line that was already struggling to protect quarterbacks John Skelton and Kevin Kolb.

NFL teams have until Monday afternoon to cut their rosters from 90 to 75 players, but the Cardinals got a jump on things by getting down to 75. In addition to putting Brown on injured reserve, they also waived fullback Jared Crank and running back Thomas Clayton with the waived-injured designation, and they released the following players: DE Landon Cohen, WR Gino Crump, S Eddie Elder, WR Tre Gray, CB Marshay Green, WR Jaymar Johnson, FB Reagan Maui’a, LB Marcus McGraw, LB Zack Nash, CB James Nixon, K/P Ricky Schmitt and LB Paul Vassalo.

    It’s going to be really hard being a Cards fan this season. Besides Fitz and possibly Ryan Williams/Beanie Wells, the entire offense is a joke

    Matt Barkley is already looking into whether he can stay at USC for an extra year

    Why do people “a torn triceps”? It’s either singular or plural. That’s like I have a problems with people saying stupid stuff.

    Actually its singular but still plural if that makes sense. It’s three muscles. So, he tore his TRICEPS!

    I understand its a muscle group of 3. Hence the prefix. But u don’t say “I bought my kid a new tricycles”. Or “Is this a square or a triangles?”
