    Cardinals' Okeafor & Ross suffer torn arm muscles, both likely to miss season

    This is from the blog of Kent Summers, a long-time writer for the Arizona Republic.

    The news is not good. Not only did an MRI confirm that Chike Okeafor did suffer a torn left bicep, a club official said right tackle Oliver Ross suffered a torn left tricep.

    Both players are expected to seek second opinions, but if surgery is required, they'll be out for the season.

    The news on Okeafor was not unexpected. He was on the injury report last night. But Ross wasn't, so his loss comes as a surprise. Rookie Levi Brown steps in and starts for him, but Okeafor's replacement isn't so clear cut.

    Darryl Blackstock is listed as the backup. Blackstock hasn't played much, and the club could swing Calvin Pace or Joe Tafoya over from the weak side to the strong to compensate.

    I don't think there will be much more news today. The players are off, and Ken Whisenhunt is unavailable for comment.
    Obviously Brown was in contention to start and would likely have been worked into the line-up sooner rather than later, but you never want to expedite the process like this.

    As much as I don't wish injury upon any person as an individual....but as a team; now that is a different story. Better them than us ;-)

    The torn triceps is what got Pace last year.
    With a rookie tackle in, we'll have a shot at confusing him some on defense, I believe.

    The loss of Okeafor is huge IMO.
