The Arizona Cardinals lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett for the season when he tore his ACL in practice two weeks ago.

While Dockett won’t be available to Arizona this season, the first stage of his recovery appears to have gone to plan.

According to Josh Wienfuss of, Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that Dockett’s surgery “went great.”

“He was in really good spirits,” Arians said. “Texted him back and forth, and he’s anxious to get back.”

The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews. He is expected to return to Arizona after spending the next five days in Florida and is expected to remain with the team throughout his rehab. Arians wants Dockett to have a presence in the locker room and on the sidelines during games despite not being able to participate.

    Was the surgery performed on Dockett’s head?

    Seems that the only doctor in the NFL more famous than Dr. Jones is Dr. Andrews.
