Scott Wedige makes NFL debut in Cardinals loss

Christian Petersen

Wedige was signed to back-up Rich Orhenberger who was filling in for the injured Lyle Sendlein.

There weren't too many bright spots for the Arizona Cardinals yesterday in the Emerald City. They suffered through one of the worst shutout losses in league history, 58-0 to the Seattle Seahawks. The offense turned the ball over eight times and the defense couldn't do anything to slow down the Seahawks offense.

In the second quarter, things seemed to keep piling on when center Rich Ohrnberger was injured. That meant rookie center Scott Wedige out of Northern Illinois, who was signed just two weeks ago would have to come in to replace Orhenberger but his start wasn't exactly auspicious. On Wedige's first snap, the ball was fumbled and luckily, John Skelton recovered.

"I went on the first one instead of the second," Wedige said after the game. "I messed up and it’s alright. I’ll be man enough to say I made a mistake. After that everything was fine."

Orhenberger eventually came back into the game after recovering from a knee injury.
