Cardinals hopeful for returning O-linemen after bye




 

The Arizona Cardinals have four starting offensive linemen on injured reserve currently as they enter the bye week. Left tackle D.J. Humphries and left guard Justin Pugh will miss the rest of the season. Pugh tore his ACL and Humphries has a back injury that won't allow him to come back before the end of the year.

However, two could be coming back soon after the bye.

The Cardinals are off this week but expect reinforcements moving forward.

Center Rodney Hudson and right guard Will Hernandez could be back in the lineup.

"We're hopeful for Will or Rodney," Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday. "I don't know what that's going to look like but hopefully one of the two at some point in the near future we can get back in there."

Hudson has a knee injury and Hernandez has a pec injury. Both were placed on injured reserve before Week 10. After the bye, it will have been four weeks, but they each will not be eligible to be designated to return until after the Cardinals' next game in Week 14. Players must miss a minimum of four games this season if they are on injured reserve.
