The Cardinals came out of last night’s game without a win or a loss, at least on the score sheet.

But they’re now down another receiver.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, initial tests showed that wide receiver Jaron Brown suffered a torn ACL last night.

He’s having more tests to confirm the severity today (presumably an MRI).

Brown left last night’s game in the first half, and didn’t return. They were already playing without John Brown (hamstrings, sickle cell trait), leaving them thin at receiver.

Now they’ll need J.J. Nelson to step into a more prominent role, as they prepare for a game against the Panthers (who are actually getting healthier in the secondary at the moment).
