Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Early Doucet has been placed on injured reserve, the team announced on Wednesday.
Injuries have limited Doucet to 10 games this season. A starter in five of those games Doucet has established career-highs with 26 receptions and 291 receiving yards this season, adding a touchdown in a Week 10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
The 81st overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft out of LSU, Doucet has 57 receptions for 595 yards and two touchdowns during his 26-game career.
Linebacker Curtis Gatewood has been elevated from the practice squad to replace Doucet on the 53-man roster, with rookie linebacker Brandon Sharpe signed to fill out practice squad.
