Cardinals tackle Brown likely out for season

Cardinals left tackle Levi Brown needs surgery to repair torn triceps, likely won't play this season.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Cardinals left tackle Levi Brown has a torn right triceps and probably will not play this season.


Coach Ken Whisenhunt revealed the extent of the injury at his Saturday news conference, saying the five-year starter will require surgery and have an anticipated recovery time that would approach the end of the season.


Brown was injured in the first half of the Cardinals' 31-27 preseason victory over the Raiders on Friday night.


Whisenhunt said that D'Anthony Batiste and rookie D.J. Young are candidates to take Brown's spot, adding that the team will keep an eye out for players who could become available as other teams make roster moves.
