The Cardinals just scored to close the gap to 10-7 on New England, but they also just suffered what could be a significant loss.
Right guard Evan Mathis was just carted off with a left foot injury, taking away their most experienced lineman.
He was replaced by Earl Watford after he was rolled up in a pile, and just left the field on a cart. The Cardinals announced his return as questionable.
Mathis has the kind of talent the Cardinals need on their interior line, but he’s also a safety net for former first-rounder D.J. Humphries. Humphries was inactive all last season, but is starting at right tackle this year.
