A day after losing Darnell Dockett to a torn ACL, the Arizona Cardinals have brought in Brett Keisel for a physical.
Dockett tore his ACL during Monday’s practice ruling him out for the season.
The 36-year-old Keisel had played his entire NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers joining the team in 2002. He has stayed in shape and is familiar with Cardinals head coach Brice Arians during his stay with the Steelers offense.

Keisel had 29 tackles and four sacks for the Steelers last year. He is a worthwhile gamble for the Cardinals at this point and could help fill the void of Dockett along with Frostee Rucker.
