Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said after Sunday’s win over the Jets that the team feared Chandler Jones suffered a season-ending biceps injury in the first half of the game.

The Cardinals don’t know yet if that’s the case. Kingsbury told reporters at a Monday press conference that Jones is having an MRI and will explore non-surgical options to deal with the injury.

“We’ll know the exact options that are on the table after that . . . We’re hoping there may be some options out there, but until we’ve finalized what the MRI is and sit down with him, I don’t have any answers on it just yet,” Kingsbury said, via Kyle Odegard of the team’s website.

Kingsbury also said that the team fears Jones tore his biceps. If that’s confirmed, it seems likely that the Cardinals would have to go without Jones for the rest of the year. For now, though, they’ll remain hopeful for a more positive answer.

  1. Such a shame. Mr. Selfish may never be the same again. Pretty expensive investment for a one trick pony and no SB appearances in Arizona.

  2. I can’t believe that of all the New England fans success… they Still can’t get over that they got blistered on this trade.

  3. CJ is a class act and amazing teammate who is fundamental to the “chemistry” of this evolving defense… As a result, losing him will hurt beyond his DPOY productivity. Hopefully there might be a solution for a shorter healing time frame.
