Tyrann Mathieu carted off with left knee injury

Arizona Cardinals v Jacksonville Jaguars Getty Images

Cardinals rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu was removed from the field on a cart after suffering a left knee injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against St. Louis.

Mathieu was hurt on a free kick after a Cardinals safety. After he was tackled on the play, Mathieu tried to run off the field and onto the Cardinals’ sideline, but he fell down before making it out of bounds.

Mathieu, who was attended to by the team’s medical staff, was able to sit up before being taken off the field on the cart.

The Cardinals have ruled out Mathieu for the rest of the game.

The 21-yard-old Mathieu has been a key contributor on the Cardinals’ defense this season, and he has shown the playmaking flair that marked his collegiate career at LSU.

The Cardinals hold a 23-3 lead late in the third quarter against the visiting Rams.

    This kid stinks anyway. Maybe Espn will hire him to be an “expert” analyst.

    Get better Tyrann. I want you in the game when we play you. The games are always better when the best play.

    Go Niners!

    Baltimorons, he is maybe the defensive rookie of the year this year but yeah he stinks. Stay on the east coast posts.

    I am tired of going into the PFT comment section and reading the constantly biased, irrelevant and distasteful, unnecessary posts written by such users as “logicalvoicesays”, “pftpoet”, and “steelersaregodsteam”, among others.

    I respectfully urge all these people to re-consider your attitude and stay away from the keyboard if you have nothing valuable to contribute.

    The nfl wants a lower target. This is what you get more players getting blown out knees. Lost gronk today as well. They may also need to evaluate below the knees tackles. They are trying to lengthen careers and make it safer but are they ?
