John Abraham rejoins Cardinals

John Abraham has decided to stay.

The veteran linebacker told the Cardinals he will be returning to the team Tuesday after leaving last week to consider retirement. Abraham had suffered a concussion in the opener and went to the doctor Monday as he tries to get through the final stages of the concussion protocol.
That would have to be passed first before Abraham could get back on the field.

Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker John Abraham has decided to rejoin the team.

Abraham had been contemplating whether to return due to a concussion.

“He’s ready to play,” Cardinals coach Brice Arians said. “I knew a lot of the (retirement thoughts) had to do with the headaches, it’s the first real big (concussion) he’s ever had. There are other things we are dealing with, and he is fine with those.”

Abraham, 36, led the Cardinals with 11.5 sacks last season.
