LT D.J. Humphries heading to IR with torn ACL

The Arizona Cardinals have lost starting left tackle D.J. Humphries for the final game of the season. Head coach Jonathan Gannon told reporters on Wednesday that Humphries tore his ACL and will be placed on injured reserve.

That means Kelvin Beachum will start the season finale against the Seattle Seahawks at left tackle.

It also means that Humphries’ 2024 season is very much in question.

Humphries enters the final year of his contract in 2024. But getting hurt now means he probably won’t be able to play until at least November.

It is the second straight year that Humphries’ season ends on injured reserve. He played only eight games last season before a back injury ended his year.

He played in 15 games for the Cardinals this season. He turned 30 years old last month.
