TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have placed wide receiver Early Doucet on injured reserve, ending the third-year pro's season with two games to go.
Doucet injured a hip in Sunday's 19-12 loss at Carolina. The former LSU player will have missed 22 games in three seasons, most of them because of injury.
Doucet was elevated to the No. 3 receiver spot this year with the departure of Anquan (AN'-kwahn) Boldin, and is third on the team with 26 catches for 291 yards and one touchdown.
Rookie Andre Roberts will take Doucet's spot as the team's No. 3 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Breaston.
To fill the roster spot, Arizona elevated linebacker Curtis Gatewood from the practice squad.
