Arizona Cardinals starting 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, with an anticipated recovery time that would approach the end of the season.
Brown was injured in the first half of Arizona’s 31-27 preseason victory over the Oakland Raiders on Friday night.
Whisenhunt said that D’Anthony Batiste and D.J. Young are candidates to take Brown’s spot, and that the team would keep an eye out for players who could become available as other teams make roster moves.
