Cardinals defensive tackle Kenny King needs surgery on his right wrist and probably will miss the season, the latest hit to a team struggling with injuries.

King, Arizona's fifth-round draft pick last season, had been battling rookie Darnell Dockett for the starting job on the right side of the defense. But he injured wrist tendons that had already been surgically repaired once this year. King missed practice Tuesday to have his injury diagnosed in Phoenix.

"It's going to be a tough go," Coach Dennis Green said about getting King back. "Because it [rehabilitation] was four months before, and it didn't work."

The return of rookie defensive end Antonio Smith from a shoulder injury should ease the crunch on the defensive line. King was the fourth starter lost to injury. The Cardinals have been without wide receivers Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald and Bryant Johnson.
