GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu came off the physically unable to perform list Tuesday.

The club said that nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu , who tore his ACL in the final game last season, has also come off the list.

Mathieu is coming back from surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL.

The player widely as the "Honey Badger" was having a standout rookie season when he tore the ACL and LCL in his left knee against St. Louis on Dec. 8.

In 13 games, he had 62 tackles, a sack, two interceptions, four tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a special teams tackle.

Mathieu has worked out on his own and expressed confidence recently that his knee is sound.
