Arizona Cardinals starting left tackle, Levi Brown, suffered a serious tricep injury in Friday night's preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals starting left tackle Levi Brown suffered a tricep injury on Friday night's game against the visiting Oakland Raiders. According to sources close to the Cardinals, Arizona fears this could mean Brown's 2012 season.

Analysis: As the blindside protector, Brown has been arguably the best offensive lineman for the Cardinals. With only two weeks of exhibition left, the Cardinals find themselves in a tough spot, in need of an experienced tackle. Because of the nature of the position, an injury to an offensive lineman affects multiple offensive components. The Cardinals have already shown ineptitude this offseason when it comes to protecting the quarterback. In his brief outing Friday, Kevin Kolb managed to take three sacks. And whether it's Ryan Williams or Beanie Wells, the production from the running backs may not be what it could have been had Brown been healthy for the season. Besides Larry Fitzgerald, be cautious when selecting Arizona players in your 2012 fantasy league.
