As if things could not get any worse for the Cardinals, the team announced on Monday that All-Pro S Budda Baker has been placed on the Injured Reserve List.

This means Baker will miss at least four more games.

It is officially a hamstring injury that will keep Baker off the field for the time being. Not including last Sunday, in his past six seasons with the Cardinals, Baker has missed a total of just five games.

This is a devasting blow to a Cardinals defense that gave up a 20-0 lead to the Giants on Sunday. In the second half, Baker’s absence was felt heavily as Arizona allowed the Giants to score a touchdown on four straight drives.

Last year, Budda Baker was the Cardinals’ lone Pro Bowl selection, it was his 4th consecutive trip to the Pro Bowl and 5th overall.

Stay tuned for further updates.
