Cardinals center Lyle Sendlein will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee.
Sendlein, a team captain who has played in 80 straight games, confirmed Monday that he tore his MCL early in Sunday's loss to the Rams, the Cards' seventh straight defeat. Sendlein played the remainder of the game despite the injury.
The Cardinals are expected to place Sendlein on injured reserve. Veteran Rich Ohrnberger is listed as the backup on the depth chart, although it's possible that the line could be shuffled to allow guard Adam Snyder to move to the inside, where he's played some in the past.
The offensive line has been a problem spot all year following a season-ending triceps injury to left tackle Levi Brown. On Sunday, the Cardinals -- who have allowed the most sacks in the league -- started rookies Nate Potter and Bobby Massie at tackle, and the inexperience issue will be exacerbated with Sendlein out.
The Cardinals play at the Jets on Sunday.

Either Janoris Jenkins was really good on Sunday, or the Cardinals’ quarterback situation has reached an all-time low. It looked like it was actually a little bit of both.
The Rams’ rookie cornerback intercepted Cardinals rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley twice, and he took both picks back for touchdowns. The first appeared to be a good read by Jenkins — jumping LaRod Stephens...

Beanie Wells is the starter and is expected to carry the majority of the workload.
GLENDALE, Az. -- A season that started with so much promise has completely disintegrated for the Arizona Cardinals. That's how Sunday's 31-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams began and ended, too. The Cardinals flexed their muscles early behind rookie quarterback Ryan Lindley in his first NFL start, but when things began to unravel, it was too much to overcome as Arizona dropped...
Sam Bradford completed only seven passes against the Arizona Cardinals in their first meeting, only eight in their second. But he'll take winning by two touchdowns apiece any day of the week. For that, he has his defense to thank.
After playing so soft over the last month that they could have been cast in a Charmin commercial, the Rams finally found their aggressive streak...
