TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals, reeling from a seven-game losing streak, have lost starting center Lyle Sendlein for the season with a torn left MCL.

Sendlein sustained the injury during Sunday's loss to St. Louis, limping off the field in first quarter but returning a short time later to finish the game. He has started 80 consecutive games since taking the job as an undrafted rookie in 2008.

It is the second loss of a starting lineman for the Cardinals this season. Left tackle Levi Brown went down with a triceps injury in the preseason.
