The news keeps getting worse for the reeling Arizona Cardinals.
Updating a previous story, Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield will miss the rest of the season with an injured left ankle.
Schofield, a fourth round draft pick out of Wisconsin in 2010, was hurt in the Cardinals' 31-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. The injury was originally diagnosed as a sprain but after further examination showed ligament damage that will require surgery.
Quintin Groves replaced Schofield in the Packers game and is expected to become the starter when the Red Birds resume action on Nov. 21 at Atlanta. The Cardinals, now 4-5, have a bye this week, Week 10 on the NFL season.
Schofield has 34 tackles and four sacks this season. He'll be sorely missed on Ray Horton's aggressive defensive unit.
