Arizona Cardinals: OT Bobby Massie Suspended Three Games
By Erich Becker
First subpar play on the O-Line, now off-the-field mistakes may cost the Cardinals
Starting Arizona Cardinals right tackle Bobby Massie has been suspending for three games to start off the regular season NFL.com is reporting. Massie violated the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport made the original report for NFL.com.
Rapoport reports that the incident occurred at the Cardinals training facility in Tempe, AZ the week of the Super Bowl where Massie was arrested for being intoxicated behind the wheel of a vehicle.
The Arizona Republic’s Kent Somers relayed a series of tweets as to what the team may do at RT if Massie should lose his appeal.

The last few days have seen a rash of subpar play and injuries take their hold on the RB position and now, with the offensive line starting to show holes in camp (and this is what camp is for after all so don’t sound the alarms), the protection a QB with a repaired ACL needs, may not be there. With D.J. Humphries not yet “clicking” Ted Larson and A.Q. Shipley not tearing it up at center, so much that Lyle Sendlein was brought back in to challenge/take over the first string position, its not the time to panic, but the time to ponder depth a little bit.
Things will be interesting this weekend as the Arizona Cardinals take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the kickoff of the AFC West-focused preseason calendar.
