The Cardinals have suffered a significant blow with the loss of linebacker Kyzir White, who tore his bicep during Sunday’s game against the Texans. Head coach Jonathan Gannon confirmed on Monday that White’s injury will force him to sit out for the rest of the year, calling it “gut-wrenching” to watch.
White had been a key player for the Cardinals, playing the first 709 defensive snaps of the season. With a team-high 90 tackles, two sacks, nine tackles for loss, and three passes defensed, his absence will be felt on the field.
In White’s absence, Krys Barnes stepped into his spot while Josh Woods took over calling the defense after White had to leave the game. The Cardinals will have to adjust without White’s presence on the field for the remainder of the season. Despite the setback, White is signed with the team until 2024.
