Cardinals outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield tweeted Monday night that he will miss the remainder of the season.
I'm out for the season. I'm sorry Cardinal fans. But I will be back and stronger then ever. This yr was just a preview of why is to Come. O'Brien (@Ob_Scho) November 6, 2012
Schofield, a starter who is second on the team with 3.5 sacks and fourth on the team with 34 tackles, injured his ankle in Sunday's loss to the Packers in Green Bay. He was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday, and while the Cardinals did not release results, Schofield's tweet indicated that the results weren't promising.
The Cardinals' depth chart lists veteran Jamaal Westerman as Schofield's backup, but Westerman has just one tackle this season in limited playing time. Veteran Quentin Groves, who has 17 tackles and two sacks this year while playing primarily behind Sam Acho at the other outside linebacker spot, is more likely to move into the lineup.
A fourth-round pick in 2010, Schofield missed the start of his rookie year while rehabbing from a torn ACL. In his two-plus seasons, he has accumulated 83 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

Cardinals LT D’Anthony Batiste was benched in favor of Nate Potter during Sunday’s Week 9 loss to the Packers. Finally. Batiste has been the worst left tackle in the league this season and is a big reason why the Cardinals’ offensive line reached historically bad proportions. Potter is a seventh-round rookie, but he can’t do much worse. Expect him to start in Week 11 when...

Cardinals HC Ken Whisenhunt told reporters on Monday that he expects to have QB Kevin Kolb back “sooner rather than later,” but wouldn’t offer a specific timetable for his return, per Darren Urban.
Kolb has been out for a few weeks now with a number of injuries. Since John Skelton has taken over, Arizona has dropped four straight games with Skelton producing 2 passing touchdowns...

Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd will see his playing time increase, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.Fantasy Spin:At this point we can't see Floyd getting enough opportunities to have any fantasy value this season. He's still sitting behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet. And of course his quarterback is either John Skelton or Kevin Kolb.
It's going to be one long bye week for the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals cut a 17-point deficit to a touchdown late in the third quarter, only to give up a 72-yard score less than a minute later that sealed their fifth straight loss.
Arizona (4-5) would pick up just one first down the rest of the game, a 31-17 Green Bay victory, and will spend the next week wondering how...

OVER THE PAST several weeks, Washington State coach Mike Leach has publicly criticized his football players. The Cougars are 2-7 and deserve criticism, but coaches typically yell at their players at practice or rip them in private. They don’t berate them in front of the media.
This win for the Packers is more proof that their slow start to the season is nothing to worry about and they are back in the running for the Super Bowl. On the other side, this loss for the Cardinals also proved something about their fast start to the season, it was a fluke. After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals have since lost five straight games and are no longer in...
