Monday, the Arizona Cardinals announced linebackers Sam Acho and Lorenzo Alexander would miss the remainder of the 2013 season with injuries.

Tuesday, head coach Bruce Arians said rookie linebacker Alex Okafor would join them on injured reserve due to a torn biceps tendon.

Okafor was selected by the Cardinals in the fourth round of the 2013 draft out of Texas. He appeared in Sunday's loss to the Saints and collected one tackle.
