Levi Brown Injury: Cardinals OT To Undergo Surgery On Tuesday Morning

Arizona Cardinals left tackle Levi Brown will undergo surgery on Tuesday morning to repair the torn triceps tendon in his right arm, as Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. Brown suffered the injury during Arizona's preseason game against the Oakland Raiders last Friday.

According to Brown's agent, Chafie Fields, the offensive lineman is scheduled to have the procedure done in Phoenix on Tuesday morning. At the moment, there's no sort of timetable for Brown's return, so the Cardinals are essentially in a holding pattern with one of their key offensive players.

In the game against Oakland, Brown was replaced on the line by D.J. Young, who spent essentially the entire 2011 season on Arizona's practice squad. Considering the high probability that Brown misses the vast majority of the season, it seems likely that the Cardinals will need to address their offensive line at some point in the fall.
