TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals’ bad injury situation got worse today when starting left tackle D.J. Humphries was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. The move leaves rookie center Mason Cole as the only remaining member of the offensive line that began the season, and he took over late in the preseason when starter A.Q. Shipley went down with knee injury. Guards Mike Iupati and Justin Pugh are also on injured reserve.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals receiver A.J. Green will be sidelined for the rest of the season with an injured toe on his right foot. The Bengals placed him on injured reserve today. Green got hurt on Oct. 28, missed three games with the injury, and returned last Sunday against Denver. He aggravated it while running a route, and he’s getting medical opinions on whether he should have surgery. Green finishes with 46 catches for 694 yards and six touchdowns.
ATLANTA (AP) — Wizards guard John Wall is out for today’s game against the Atlanta Hawks because of personal reasons. An All-Star the last five years, Wall will miss his first game of the season. He is averaging 21.3 points and 8.4 assists. Wall’s 9.2 career assists average ranks second among active players. Also, the Hawks will be without starter Taurean Prince for the next three weeks after the forward injured his left ankle in Monday’s loss to Golden State.
