Cardinals’ D.J. Humphries, Tyvon Branch leave game with knee injuries
The Arizona Cardinals’ left tackle D.J. Humphries and safety Tyvon Branch both left Thursday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks with knee injuries.
Tight end Ifeanyi Momah also left the game, injuring his ankle.
Head coach Bruce Arians after the game said all three players will “probably” head to injured reserve.
Humphries was on the ground clutching his right knee after Seahawks defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson rolled up on Humphries’ right leg in the mid-first quarter. He was helped off the field and walked to the locker room.
The Cardinals’ Week 10 game marked the fourth straight game Arizona had the same five offensive linemen starting.
Humphries was injured in the team’s season opener against the Lions, playing only eight snaps. He sprained his MCL in the same knee and didn’t return until Week 6.
John Wetzel replaced Humphries at left tackle.
Branch was defending Seattle tight end Jimmy Graham on his touchdown catch in the mid- first quarter. Following the play, Branch was holding his right knee. He was helped to the locker room.
Branch entered the game leading NFL safeties and the Cardinals in tackles with 66.
