NFL: Cardinals Lose Iron Man Darnell Dockett For Season

nfl_u_darnelldockett_cmg_600_300x200Darnell Dockett, the Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle who missed only two games in a 10-year career, suffered a torn ACL in practice and will be sidelined for the entire upcoming season, a dramatic loss to a team with playoff aspirations.

Docket suffered the injury about an hour into Monday’s practice on a passing play during an 11-on-11 period. He was carted off the field at University of Phoenix Stadium after being attended to by head trainer Tom Reed.

“Thank you all for your support & get well wishes. I really do appreciate it. This will be a tough road to recovery but I been through worst,” Dockett said via Twitter late Monday night.

Dockett is a three-time Pro Bowler who shares the Super Bowl sack record with Reggie White. He is coming off his most productive season in five years with 59 tackles and 4.5 sacks. He has been remarkably durable, especially for playing in the trenches for a decade. He played in his first 104 games before a shoulder injury sidelined him in Week 9 of the 2010 season. He missed Week 4 in 2012 because of a hamstring injury. 

“Praying for my brother,” said safety Cardinals Tyrann Mathieu, who is coming back from a torn ACL and LCL.
