When linebacker John Abraham left the Arizona Cardinals last Tuesday after the victory over the San Diego Chargers Monday night, it was reported he was doing so in order to contemplate retirement. Now, it sounds like he is returning to the team on Tuesday according to head coach Bruce Arians.
Abraham left the game early due to a possible concussion. It was said Abraham had been suffering from memory loss for about a year. That’s never a good sign. Arians said that Abraham told him his heart wasn’t into it anymore. So, the Cards let him go and got a roster exemption from the NFL. He had until Tuesday to make a decision about whether he wanted to come back or not.
Abraham’s playing status is unknown for this Sunday’s game at home against the San Francisco 49ers. Arians mentioned in his radio show on Arizonasports.com that he was “currently at the doctor going through his (concussion) protocol.”
