Doucet lands on IR

The season of wide receiver Early Doucet is over, after the Cardinals put him on injured reserve Wednesday with his hip injury. It’s been a tough year for Doucet, who suffered two similar injuries (he needed surgery to repair a sports hernia) and again couldn’t seem to stay on the field. Andre Roberts will take his place, and there is no doubt Stephen Williams will reappear on the radar the last couple of games. Doucet had 26 catches for 291 yards this season, which were still career-highs for the third-year pro.

The Cardinals promoted linebacker Curtis Gatewood from the practice squad to the active roster (which makes sense given the questionable status of linebacker Joey Porter) and have signed linebacker Brandon Sharpe to the practice squad.
