Cardinals linebacker Gabe Martin ruptured his Achilles during offseason workouts, Mike Jurecki reports.

Martin, 25, played 45 snaps on special teams and none on defense last season, appearing in three games.

He played in eight games in 2016 before landing on injured reserve with a season-ending knee injury.

Martin originally signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Bowling Green in 2015. He spent his rookie season on the practice squad.

Martin was with the Saints part of last season before the Cardinals signed him off New Orleans’ practice squad November 28.

  1. I have planters fasciitis and that’s so painful. I could not imagine rupturing your Achilles!!!

  2. The NFL wants to ban Kickoffs ect..but truth is many injuries and alot of the ACL’s, MCL’s and Achilles injuries are non contact. You can’t protect players from every injury. Cancel Thursday nite and London games..The rest is just random bad luck.

    Kickoffs: concussions, spine/neck injuires. thats why

  4. One of my friends had that same injury at age 50. Took him six months before he was back to normal again. Martin will be back, but it is just a really annoying injury to have.
