Warner may miss rest of the season


Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner is likely out for the rest of the season after injuring his knee in a 30-19 loss to the Houston Texans yesterday.

The Cardinals were left with third-string quarterback John Navarre against Houston after Warner was injured and backup Josh McCown left the game with flu-like symptoms.

Warner threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Anquan Boldin early in the second quarter and walked off the field. He was sacked twice on Arizona's first series, and Arizona coach Dennis Green said Warner injured the medial collateral ligament in his right knee on one of those sacks.

Dolphins -- For the second home game in a row, a finger injury left Miami quarterback Gus Frerotte watching his team's fourth-quarter comeback from the sideline. Frerotte aggravated a sprained index finger on his throwing hand against the New York Jets. Sage Rosenfels replaced Frerotte to start the second half and led Miami to two touchdowns in the final 14 minutes, including the go-ahead score on a 50-yard pass to Marty Booker.

Eagles -- Offensive tackle Todd Herremans was carted off the field with an injured left ankle in the second quarter of their 17-16 win over the St. Louis Rams. Coach Andy Reid said he believed Herremans broke his ankle. Herremans will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging test today. "I can't tell you much more than that right now," Reid said. Herremans, a rookie making his fourth start of the season, was hurt pursuing an interception by Pisa Tinoisamoa.

Browns -- Center Jeff Faine probably will miss the rest of the season after injuring a muscle in his right arm in the first half against the Oakland Raiders. Faine, who has started all 14 games this season, was expected to have an MRI exam today after the Browns returned to Cleveland after their 9-7 victory over Oakland. "I think he may be out," coach Romeo Crennel said. "I think it might be a pulled or torn muscle."
