One of newest members of the Arizona Cardinals was carted off the field after suffering an injury during Sunday's preseason game at the Houston Texans.

Veteran cornerback Mike Jenkins appeared to injure his knee while trying to tackle Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

If Jenkins' reaction is any indication, it could be a serious injury.

The 6-foot, 200-pound Jenkins is an eight-year NFL veteran. He was a Pro Bowler in 2009 and played in 14 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season. In July, the Cardinals signed Jenkins to a 1-year contract.

Jenkins has 10 interceptions, 54 passes defended and 218 total tackles in his pro career.
