Cardinals OLB Davis breaks leg vs. Chiefs; likely out for year

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona outside linebacker Will Davis broke his left leg against the Kansas City Chiefs and is expected to be out for the season.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that X-rays showed a fractured fibula. 

Davis started the game in place of Clark Haggans, who has missed three of the last four games with a groin injury.

Whisenhunt said he expects Haggans back this week and, with rookie O'Brien Schofield now the backup, does not anticipate adding another player at that position.

Davis, a sixth-round draft pick out of Illinois in 2009, had started the three games that Haggans was injured.

Defensive end Calais Campbell was in a walking boot Monday after spraining his left ankle.
