Cardinals' Alani Fua: Headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fua has been placed on the IR due to a knee injury, Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com reports.

Fua dealt with a knee injury during the early portion of the preseason, but may have suffered a setback resulting in his IR designation. The Cardinals signed Joplo Bartu to provide additional depth at inside linebacker with the open roster spot.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fua posted two solo tackles and one pass defended during Sunday's preseason defeat against Houston.

Fua was plagued by a knee injury early in camp, but has so far suited up for the last two exhibitions, totaling two tackles. Once the regular season arrives, he'll serve as depth at inside linebacker and a regular on special teams.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fua (knee) won't play in Friday's preseason opener against the Raiders, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Avoiding a more serious diagnosis last week, Fua is still contending with a knee injury that will keep him on the sideline Friday. Once he's practicing in earnest, he'll compete for one of the reserve inside linebacker spots behind Kevin Minter.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fua doesn't require surgery on his knee, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

Fua confirmed that everyone involved was worried about a torn meniscus, and according to Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site, he'll return to practice in the next 4-to-5 days. At that point, Fua will serve as one of the primary reserve inside linebackers to Deone Bucannon and Kevin Minter.

Cardinals' Alani Fua: MRI ordered up on knee
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fua was slated for an MRI on his knee Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Head coach Bruce Arians is holding out hope that Fua's issue isn't severe, but tests will determine how much time he requires on the sideline. Because the Cardinals have Wednesday off, Fua's status may not be updated until Thursday.
