Mauro Won't Return vs. Panthers

Sunday, Jan. 24

According to Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com, the team has ruled Mauro out for the rest of Sunday's NFC title game against the Carolina Panthers.

Mauro suffered the injury during the first quarter and went to the locker room for examination. Adam Green of Arizona Sports 98.7 noted the 24-year-old has been banged up down the stretch. 

An undrafted free agent out of Stanford, Mauro also missed the final two games of the regular season because of a calf injury. He appeared in 14 games for the NFC West champions and recorded his first career sack in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears.

Things got ugly for Arizona early against the Panthers, as the Cardinals trailed 24-7 at halftime. Losing Mauro, a vital piece of head coach Bruce Arians' defensive rotation, is going to make the team's comeback effort more difficult.
