Fotu (hand) and White (bicep) both suffered injuries during the 21-16 loss to the Houston Texans on Nov. 19 and have been placed on injured reserve, the Cardinals stated today.

After they played the Texans, Arizona head coach Jonathan Gannon said that White has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

In his first year in the valley, White started all-11 games, registered two sacks, one interception and 90 combined tackles.

According to multiple sources, White tore his bicep tendon against Houston.

Furthermore, Fotu was also placed on the IR after initially trying to play through his injury.

Unlike White, however, Fotu’s situation doesn’t look as serious and could make a return to the gridiron before the end of the 2023 campaign.

But, while being on injured reserve, Fotu will have to miss at least the next four games before being eligible to be activated.

This was Fotu’s fourth year in Arizona and has played in 10 games while starting in nine so far.

Additionally, Fotu has amassed 2.5 tackles and 25 tackles to this point.
