Dockett, entering his 11th season, suffered the injury during drills at the team’s training camp and will undergo surgery in a devastating loss for the Cardinals who have developed a strong defense and are contenders in the NFC West.

Dockett, 33, has spent his entire career in Arizona and been a staple of their defense while serving as a starter in each of his first 10 seasons.

He has been named to three Pro Bowls during his tenure.
