Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News

Dockett suffered a torn ACL on Monday, August 18, and he will be out for the season.


Darnell Dockett was once a feared disruptor but at 32 years old his past is much more impressive than his present. He only has 9.5 sacks in the last three years combined and is now more of a situational pass threat. Dockett moves all over the line in the Cardinals 3-4 scheme but he rarely moves into the opposing teams backfield anymore. (May 24)

Latest News

Cardinals | Darnell Dockett to IR (Thu Aug 21, 05:03 PM) - Arizona Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett (knee) was placed on Reserve/Injured Thursday, Aug. 21.

Our View: Confirming some bad news though the good news is he only tore his ACL as opposed to both the ACL and MCL as was reported at one point. Still this is a tough blow to the Cardinals defense.

Cardinals | Frostee Rucker set to replace Darnell Dockett (Tue Aug 19, 09:02 PM) - Arizona Cardinals DE Frostee Rucker will have the first shot at replacing DT Darnell Dockett (knee), and he will start in Dockett's position at practice Wednesday, Aug. 20. DE Ed Stinson and DE Kareem Martin would likely be next in line for the role if Rucker struggles.

Cardinals | Darnell Dockett out for the year (Mon Aug 18, 09:52 PM) - Arizona Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett (knee) will need season-ending surgery after an MRI on his right knee Monday, Aug. 18, revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Our View: Ouch. This is a huge blow to the Cardinals defense in more ways than one. Dockett is an important part of the run defense, but he's also an emotional leader who will be missed. The Cardinals have lost Dockett, Daryl Washington and Karlos Dansby from last year's defense. They could struggle on the defensive side of the ball in 2014.
