Report: Cardinals' Okafor to forgo surgery, play through torn biceps

Share This

Arizona Cardinals linebacker Alex Okafor is planning to play through a torn biceps tendon, as opposed to undergoing surgery, reports NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, citing a source.

Okafor suffered the injury last week and told team website writer Darren Urban on Friday that the decision to undergo surgery would be one of the toughest he’s ever had to make.

The 25-year-old started 13 games for the Cardinals last season, recording 31 tackles and two sacks, but will likely see his playing time dramatically reduced following the addition of pass-rush specialist Chandler Jones this offseason.
