Darnell Dockett carted off at Cardinals practice with knee injury


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.”
