Former LSU standout and Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu has had a difficult 2016 on the football field.

After a 2015 All-Pro season, Mathieu has struggled with injuries this season, including a shoulder injury he suffered against Carolina on October 30th.

Since the injury, he played in two of the next six games, including last Sunday against the Saints where he struggled in coverage.

While he publicly stated he didn't want to be placed on season ending injured reserve, the Cardinals put Mathieu on IR today.

This marks the third time in four seasons Mathieu ended up on injured reserve.
