TEMPE, Ariz. -- A severe concussion has ended John Abrahams season, and perhaps his career. Arizona placed the 15-year NFL veteran on injured reserve on Friday. "You feel bad for somebody who its probably the end of their line," coach Bruce Arians said. The 36-year-old outside linebacker sustained a concussion in the season opener against San Diego. He left the team briefly after that, reportedly contemplating retirement, before making an attempt to return this week. I think the concussion had a part to do with the depression and everything that went on last week," Arians said. "He was excited and ready to roll and hoping to get the OK from the doctor, then to get that kind of news was real hard." The extent of the injury became apparent in a concussion test Abraham took on Thursday. "The concussion protocol really did its job coming back finding a couple of problems," Arians said. "The doctors feel that he should shut it down for at least a year. Were glad we caught it now and not later." Asked what those problems were, the coach said he wasnt smart enough to know what "all those words" mean, "but its not good." Its the latest in a series of problems to hit the Cardinals. Quarterback Carson Palmer is out with a nerve injury in his shoulder. The team lost defensive tackle Darnell Dockett for the season with a knee injury in training camp. Then this week, backup running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested on domestic violence charges. The Cardinals quickly placed Dwyer on the non-football illness list, ending his season. Abraham is the NFLs active career sacks leader with 133 1/2, ranking him ninth on the leagues all-time list. He had a team-high 11 1/2 sacks with the Cardinals last season and is in the second year of a two-year contract with Arizona. Abraham had four forced fumbles last season, giving him 48 for his career, tied with Jason Taylor for most in NFL history. Outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said the team will miss "just the football experience, a guy thats played in the league for 15 years and played at that high level." Arians said the team will miss Abrahams leadership, too, calling him "an extra coach." Tight end John Carlson, who has had his own concussion issues, noted how the NFLs attitude toward those injuries has changed. "Thats an example of the league being proactive and looking after a guys interests," Carlson said. "I appreciate that. Theres been such a shift in recent years in the league, starting at the top and thats a great thing that theyre looking after his long-term health." Abraham had a tumultuous early season with Arizona. He arrived late to training camp, later confirming that he had been undergoing rehabilitation for an alcohol issue. He was arrested in suburban Atlanta in June and accused of drunken driving. Abraham played six seasons with the New York Jets and seven with the Atlanta Falcons before signing with Arizona as a free agent. Originally, Abraham was to be only a pass-rush specialist with the Cardinals, but he moved into a full-time role when Arizona lost starting linebackers Sam Acho and Alexander to injury against New Orleans in the third game of last season. Abraham went on to be one of the top players on a defence that ranked sixth overall in the NFL, earning his fifth Pro Bowl appearance. Arians said Acho, Alexander and recent signee Thomas Keiser will rotate at Abrahams position. The Cardinals also re-signed punter Drew Butler because regular punter Dave Zastudil still is nursing a sore groin. Butler punted in both of Arizonas games but was cut Tuesday. Butler had a punt blocked in each of his two games with Arizona, but Arians said neither was the fault of the punter. The four punts he did get off averaged 54.5 yards per kick.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- FIFA has acknowledged being embarrassed by a security lapse that let ticketless Chile fans rampage into the Maracana Stadium. Fences have been breached by fans at both World Cup matches staged at the countrys biggest and most prestigious stadium which hosts the final on July 13. "It is embarrassing," FIFA director of security Ralf Mutschke said Thursday, one day after 88 ticketless Chile fans broke into the sold-out venue ahead of their teams 2-0 win against Spain. Mutschke said security operations at the World Cup must "improve in order that this will not happen again." Brazilian authorities said the fans were detained after smashing their way through a perimeter wire fence into the stadium media centre. Fans stampeded through the media working area, knocking down partition walls while trying to gain access to the pitch area. They were detained by some of the 1,000-plus private security officers on match duty. "We have to protect the media, theres no doubt about it -- we also have to protect the (other) fans," Mutschke said at a news briefing to address the incident. Chiles consul general in Rio, Samuel Ossa, told reporters that the fans will be arrested if they do not leave Brazil within 72 hours and would likely have to spend time in jail while Brazilian authorities go through a process to deport them. The total number of those detained and released was 90 because a Bolivian and a Colombian were with the group of Chileans, he said. "Theyre getting off easy," Ossa said. "They were not criminals. They are people who overstepped their passion and made a mistake and have to pay for it." But the president of Chiles football federation -- which could be disciplined by FIFA over the incident -- said the Chileans fans who invaded the stadium could face sanctions after they get home. "The large majority of Chilean faans show excellent, exemplary behaviour that was marred by .dddddddddddd.. so-called fans," Sergio Jadue said Thursday at the teams training camp near Belo Horizonte. "We dont want these kinds of people at our fields." Four days earlier, at least 10 Argentina fans were detained in Rio after jumping fences to try to see their team play last Sunday in another sold-out match against Bosnia-Herzegovina. Chilean fan Luis Galvez said his group of friends without tickets got past four security lines until being stopped outside the stadium. "There were a lot of rumours going around that it was easy to get in," said Galvez, a 29-year-old physical therapist. He described the break-in as an embarrassment. "Its one thing to try and get in without a ticket and quite another to get in a fight with security and start destroying things," he said. FIFA and the local organizing committee plan to announce improved security measures Friday. "Operational procedures are being reassessed and definitely you will see a difference in the next event," Hilario Medeiros, security manager for Brazilian organizers, said through a translator. The Maracana hosts Belgium vs. Russia on Sunday, the third of seven matches there. Security issues have been an issue at other World Cup venues, with stadium staff failing to arrive for work in Brasilia last Sunday and on Tuesday in Fortaleza, where Brazil played Mexico. Medeiros said the Maracana was fully staffed Wednesday with 1,037 security workers. "We knew that this was a high risk operation," Medeiros said. Mutschke said other aspects of the security plan worked well at the airport-style security checks. "There was a lot of butterfly knives seized by mag and bag. There was tables full of pyrotechnics and firecrackers," Mutschke said. "The stewards did a good job despite the incident." ' ' '
