The word from Arizona after wide receiver Jaron Brown injured his knee in Sunday night’s tie with the Seahawks was that Brown suffered a torn ACL.
That was the word from Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on Monday as well. Arians confirmed that Brown tore the ligament and will miss the rest of the season while on injured reserve.
Those will be the first games that Brown has missed since making the team as an undrafted free agent in 2013.
Brown has been bumped into a bigger role in recent weeks with Michael Floyd falling out of favor and John Brown sidelined by leg pain caused by a sickle cell trait. Floyd had five catches on Sunday night and J.J. Nelson, who had three catches for 84 yards, is also on hand in the event Brown’s absence continues.
