Cardinals WR Jaron Brown out for season with torn ACL

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jaron Brown tore an ACL in Sunday night's 6-6 tie with Seattle and is out for the remainder of the season.

Coach Bruce Arians confirmed the injury at his Monday news conference.

Brown has 11 receptions for 187 yards and a touchdown this season and is one of the best players on special teams.

An undrafted rookie out of Clemson in 2013, Brown will be a free agent after this season.

He has 55 career receptions for 700 yards and five scores. Brown had a 51-yard touchdown catch in Arizona's blowout win over Tampa Bay, the Cardinals' longest pass play of the season.
