Week 6 could not have gone worse for the Arizona Cardinals. Not only did they drop a very winnable game against the Seattle Seahawks, but several starters were injured during the contest, including wide receiver Marquise Brown.

Now Arizona has received some devastating injury news on its star wideout.

Brown is feared to have suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 6, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Further testing needs to be done to determine the severity, but it sounds like Brown's promising 2022 campaign could already be over.

This is nothing short of a gut-punch for the Cardinals. Brown made an immediate impact following his trade from the Baltimore Ravens this offseason, recording 43 receptions and 485 yards over the first six games. Those marks ranked fifth and seventh, respectively, in the league, showing how great he was to begin the year.

Brown's absence creates a major hole in an offense that's already struggled this season. DeAndre Hopkins' potential return in Week 7 is the lone source of optimism right now, but it'll be an uphill battle from here for Arizona, especially with left guard Justin Pugh also expected to miss the rest of 2022 with a knee injury he suffered in Week 6.

A short turnaround won't help the Cardinals, who face the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football. Arizona is a slight 1.5-point favorite ahead of that game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
