Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper exits with ankle injury


Cardinals rookie left guard Jonathan Cooper left Saturday’s game vs. San Diego after he was rolled into at the end of a play early in the third quarter.

Cooper suffered a left ankle injury on the play, Darren Urban of said. He was ruled out for the rest of the game.

The Cardinals’ first-round pick (No. 7 overall) in April’s draft, Cooper was pulling from left to right on an Alfonso Smith run when the injury occurred. As Smith was tackled, the collision ending that play took out Cooper, who had his back to the action.

The Cardinals also lost tight end Rob Housler to a right ankle injury that ended his evening, according to Urban.

    Hhis ankle definitely looks either dislocated or broken, or perhaps he might have torn a ligament or two. Not good.

    Broken leg. Probably done for year.

    I’m a Seahawks fan but only classless 49ers fans root for injury, hope he gets better soon.

    It’s a broken leg for Cooper according to Bruce Arians. Out 2 months to the whole season. He was looking great in camp and the preseason games. Such a shame for the young man and the Cardinals.
