The Arizona Cardinals officially announced Tuesday that wide receiver Jaron Brown has been put on the injured reserve list. He’ll now miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.
Brown, a former undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2013, has been with the Cardinals his entire career and has become a very solid player for them. During his four seasons with the team, he has 55 receptions for 700 yards and five touchdowns.
That being said, he was off to a career-best start to the 2016 season and was beginning to become a more integral part of the Arizona offense. Through the first seven games, Brown already has 11 receptions for 187 yards and a touchdown.
Unfortunately those will be his final numbers for the 2016 season now.
He suffered a knee injury this past Sunday night in the Cardinals 6-6 tie with the Seattle Seahawks and there was concern that it was a serious injury. As we reported yesterday, the result of the tests on his ailing knee ended up revealing the worst, a torn ACL.
He’ll need surgery to repair the knee and his focus will now go towards a return for the 2017 season.
In other news for the Cardinals, the team announced a few practice squad moves on Tuesday.
First and foremost, wide receiver Chris Hubert has been re-signed to the unit. He signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent this year and spent portions of the offseason with them. To make room for Hubert, the team cut tackle Martin Wallace.
