"Honey Badger" Mathieu comes off PUP list for Cardinals
GLENDALE, Ariz.- Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu is now off the physically unable to perform list.
Mathieu is coming back from surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL.
The former LSU standout widely known as the "Honey Badger" was having a stellar rookie season when he tore the ACL and LCL in his left knee against St. Louis on December 8.
In 13 games, he had 62 tackles, a sack, two interceptions, four tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a special teams tackle.
Mathieu has worked out on his own and expressed confidence recently that his knee is sound.
