The Arizona Cardinals were hit with another injury to the offense on Sunday.

Late in the team’s 31-21 loss to the Carolina Panthers, offensive lineman Justin Pugh went down with an apparent leg injury.

Pugh was seen down on the field and pointing at his right leg with 3:09 left to play in the fourth quarter.

The injury occurred five plays after starting running back Kenyan Drake exited the game due to injury. He did not return for the team’s final series, nor did Pugh.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury did not have an update on Pugh or Drake after the game.

Pugh started in all 16 games last season for the Cardinals after combining for 15 games played the previous two seasons as member of the New York Giants and Cardinals.

The 6-foot-5, 311-pound guard has seen 95% (213) of the offensive snaps this season to go along with 15 (18%) special teams snaps.
