Cardinals rookie Mathieu injures knee against Rams
Arizona Cardinals rookie Tyrann Mathieu was carted off the field
with a left knee injury in the third quarter of the team’s game
Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.
Mathieu, having a sensational season at safety and several other
defensive back positions, returned the free kick following a Rams
safety and was buried in a pile of Ram tacklers.
As he jogged off the field, the knee buckled and Mathieu
collapsed on the ground. A cart immediately was called and he was
carried off the field.
Arizona drafted the ”Honey Badger” in the third round after he
spent a year away from football following his dismissal from the
LSU team for marijuana-related problems.
He quickly became an Arizona fan favorite.
