Arizona Cardinals linebacker O'Brien Schofield is out for the season after injuring his ankle, but he's gotten plenty of support from his teammates including Darnell Dockett.

Schofield tore ligaments in his ankle against Green Bay in somewhat of a freak injury. Schofield suffered the injury when Dockett fell on his leg as both players were chasing after Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Dockett apologized after the game and has offered support to Schofield as he begins the rehabilitation process.

Dockett even offered to let Schofield use his personal hyperbaric chamber to help speed up the recovery process. While Schofield said he appreciated Dockett's generoisty, Dockett said he was just doing what he would do for any teammate.

Dockett said he would do anything to help any of his teammates and knows they would do the same for him. While Schofield will miss the rest of the 2012 season, he is expected to be back in a starting role for the Cardinals next season.
