Could be end of his NFL career. Abraham, 36, suffered the injury in the third quarter of the game. The linebacker had a somewhat tumultuous offseason, and reported to training camp late due to legal issues stemming from a DUI in Georgia. However, he was expected to help anchor a Cardinals defense that lost a considerable amount of talent in the offseason, so him being gone would be a substantial blow to what Arizona is trying to do.However, if Abraham is indeed suffering from memory loss and other concussion-related symptoms, he is certainly right to take time off — and possibly call it a career.Because Abraham has left the team, the Cardinals received a temporary roster exemption which they used to re-sign linebacker Marcus Benard. Benard was released in the final round of roster cuts. The 29-year-old appeared in 12 games for the Cardinals last season, tallying 17 total tackles and 2.5 sacks. A veteran of four NFL seasons, the linebacker has amassed 62 total tackles and 14 sacks.
