Deone Bucannon getting MRI on knee

Cardinals linebacker Deone Bucannon did not practice on Friday as he goes to get a test on a knee injury.

Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said that Bucannon hyperextended his knee during Thursday’s practice and will go for an MRI to assess the damage. The feeling around the team was that Bucannon avoided a serious injury.

“He’s fine. He’s a tough player and I’m not worried about him,” defensive coordinator Al Holcomb said, via the Arizona Republic. “He’s fine.”

The fact that he’s getting an MRI suggests that not everyone is entirely convinced that Holcomb’s read is correct.

Bucannon, a 2014 first-round pick, is set to call the defensive plays for the Arizona defense in the final year of his rookie contract.

    This is another guy Keim has failed to sign, while overpaying Palmer, Mathieu, Fitzgerald and Chamdler Jones.

    You always comment on the Cardinals, but you obviously don’t watch them. You have no idea what you’re talking about. Buc hasn’t been that great the past two years.

    Over paying Fitzgerald and Jones? Are you dense? Fitzgerald is coming off 3 straight 100+YD/1000+YD seasons and still plays at an elite level, on top of that he sells his tickets and his presence means much more for the franchise than production alone.
    Second All-Pro DE Chandler Jones led the NFL in sacks (17), TFL’s (28) and QB Pressures (79) last season and leads the NFL in sacks since 2013 & 2015. In his two seasons in Arizona he has 28.5 sacks, how he is “over-rated” again? It must really bother you he is no longer with the Pat’s, because you always your run mouth about him even when the article has nothing to do with him. I’d be salty to if my teams horrible pass rush was a major reason for a Super Bowl loss while my head coach had shipped off arguably the best pass rusher in the NFL for a 2nd round pick. Belichicks making great personnel moves lately!!
