A Cardinals stalwart reportedly departed practice on a cart Monday after suffering an apparent leg injury.

According to Paola Bolvin of the Arizona Republic, defensive tackle Darnell Dockett went down with a possible right leg injury and was eventually carted off the field.

The 33-year-old Dockett has been a starter for Arizona throughout his career and has missed just two regular season games in 10 NFL seasons. A three-time Pro Bowler, Dockett has recorded 459 tackles and 40.5 sacks.

Losing Dockett for any major length of time would be a blow to an Arizona defense already without star inside linebacker Daryl Washington (suspension).

UPDATE 8:03 p.m. ET: Dockett suffered a knee injury, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ website. Dockett was slated to get an MRI to assess the injury. Said nose tackle Dan Williams, per the club’s website: “I don’t know the extent of the injury, but it’s part of football. His foot just got stuck in the ground. We’ll just have to wait and see.”

    He’s one of the best players in the NFC West. He’s very tough to play against but no football fan wants a player to be hurt. Get well soon.

    I hate to see any player go down especially a former nole. AZ has a lot on defense but hes a huge part of what they do.

    Damn never good to hear. Especially for a player that always gives 110%. Hope everything turns out ok. Get well DD. Guy is a savage on the field.
