The Arizona Cardinals placed linebacker John Abraham on season-ending injured reserve because of concussions, the team announced Friday

Abraham did not pass the league’s mandated concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in the Cardinals’ Week 1 victory over the San Diego Chargers. He left the team briefly, which allowed the Cardinals to use a temporary roster exemption.

The team also re-signed punter Drew Butler, who was released to make room for Abraham on the roster. 

Abraham is a five-time Pro Bowler and has 133.5 career sacks, which leads all active players.
