PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NFL : Cardinals' Beuerlein Might Need Surgery

November 15, 1994| Associated Press

Steve Beuerlein, who injured his left knee during Sunday's 10-9 victory over the New York Giants, might be lost to the Arizona Cardinals for two to three weeks.

Beuerlein said a magnetic resonance imaging test revealed torn cartilage, which will cause fluid to build up until it is repaired. He said he would decide soon whether to have arthroscopic surgery.

Coach Buddy Ryan said Jay Schroeder, 1-1 as a starter for the Cardinals (4-6), will play if Beuerlein is unable to.

Andre Waters, the starting strong safety, sprained the arch of his right foot in the same game and also might be out this week, when the Philadelphia Eagles visit Sun Devil Stadium.

Cincinnati Bengal running back Steve Broussard, released from a hospital after tests found no permanent damage from a collision that left him temporarily numb, is contemplating retirement.

Broussard was taken from the field on a stretcher with four minutes left in a 34-31 victory over the Houston Oilers. His legs went numb after he made a block and jammed his neck.
