Cardinals linebacker Kyzir White, who has been a crucial player for the team this season, suffered an injury during Sunday’s game against the Texans. His bicep tear will force him to miss the rest of the year, as confirmed by head coach Jonathan Gannon on Monday.
Gannon praised White for his determination to play through the injury before eventually leaving the game. The coach called it “gut-wrenching” to watch and commended White for his hard work and dedication to the team.
With a team-high 90 tackles, two sacks, nine tackles for loss, and three passes defensed, White’s absence will be felt on the field. Despite the setback, White is signed with the team until 2024.
In order to fill White’s spot, Krys Barnes stepped in during Sunday’s game while Josh Woods took over calling the defense after White had to leave. The Cardinals will have to adjust without White’s presence on the field for the remainder of the season.
