PHOENIX — It looks like the Cardinals win over the Rams Sunday afternoon will be a costly one.
During the game in Los Angeles, Cardinals tight end Zach Ertz suffered a serious knee injury in the first half. He did not return for the rest of the game.
Many hoped the injury to Ertz wasn't too serious, but that changed Monday afternoon when reports emerged that Ertz will miss the rest of the season due to the injury.
NFL insider Ian Rapoport released the news on Twitter. Additional news on the injury has not yet been released by the team.
Ertz was expected to be a big contributor to the offense. His role will now have to be replaced with rookie tight end Trey McBride.
Arizona's next game is a Monday night matchup with the San Francisco 49ers in Mexico City on Nov. 21.
