The Cardinals made the move official Tuesday, placing center A.Q. Shipley on injured reserve.

He will miss the season after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday’s practice.

Shipley, who joined the Cardinals in 2015, was the team’s only offensive lineman to start every game over the past two seasons. He will instead spend this season rehabbing.

Mason Cole, a third-round pick, will move up the depth chart. He started at left tackle for Michigan as a true freshman in 2014 before moving to center in 2016. Cole was back at left tackle last season.

  1. Really? They moved a guy with a torn ACL to IR? What are they thinking?!?! (Sarcasm)

  2. Man, that sucks tearing an ACL that early in the season.

    At least the team has time to prepare, and Shipley has plenty of time to rehab for next season, as a larger guy.

    Wish him well. Quality dude.

  3. Things work out in strange and mysterious ways sometimes…. Mason Cole has an opportunity to step up right out of college. With so much discussion about QB’s doing this, could it be that the Center position might be just as significant?

    Good Luck Mason!
