SEATTLE (AP) -Arizona tight end Leonard Pope was taken off the field on a cart after an injury to his right ankle late in the third quarter on Sunday against Seattle.
After Pope caught a 5-yard pass from quarterback Kurt Warner, he turned upfield and cornerback Marcus Trufant grabbed Pope around the ankles, falling onto his lower right leg.
Pope remained down on the field for more than five minutes while trainers placed an air cast around his foot and ankle. He hopped onto the cart and was taken off the field.
Already without second leading receiver Anquan Boldin on Sunday, Pope became more of a target for Warner. Pope had a team-high four catches when he left the game. Pope had 19 catches for 222 yards and five touchdowns entering Sunday.
