Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall felt 'looseness' in knee


Considering my knee is relatively well intact, I’m going to imagine feeling ‘looseness’ in it would be quite concerning.

That’s exactly the feeling Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall recently experienced, according to the Arizona Republic:

In other injury news Saturday, running back Rashard Mendenhall left the game near the end of the first quarter with a right-knee injury. He had missed a handful of practices in training camp already because of tendinitis in the knee, the same one that required major surgery at the end of the 2010 season.

The situation is even more concerning considering the injury has occurred in the knee Mendenhall already blew out in 2012.

He and the Cardinals are currently awaiting an MRI with results expected later today.

Mendenhall was in line for the starting running back job, despite missing a handful of training camp practices with tendinitis.

Given the other alternatives, the Cardinals could be facing some massive uncertainty in their backfield considering the the injuries to both top halfback’s, Mendenhall and Ryan Williams.

Add in the offensive line woes after rookie Jonathan Cooper was lost for the season and things aren’t looking so hot in the desert.
