Not much activity yesterday from the Cards, with the only real news being the return of Jay Feely to kick Field Goals and maybe score the occasional touchdown (We want another one this season Whiz, the one in 2010 against Denver isn't enough).

Also, Pat Robertson suggests that Peyton Manning should be injured for stealing Timmy Tebow's job.

Cardinals 21st in ESPN's pre-draft Power Rankings - ArizonaSports.com

Cardinals RB Ryan Williams working his way back - ArizonaSports.com
Ryan Williams became largely a forgotten man last season, even after putting together an excellent training camp. A surprising choice in the second round of the NFL Draft, Williams saw his 2011 campaign come to an end in the team's second preseason game, as he ruptured the patellar tendon in his right knee, an injury that caused him to miss the entire season. Now, with months to go before training camp, Williams tweeted about his progress as he works to return to the field.

Suns back on track after edging Pacers on road
The Suns were going to be better off for just having left Florida, but playing at Indiana is no instant antidote for ailing teams. The Pacers boasted the NBA's seventh best record and toasted the Suns with their highest scoring first half of the season. The Suns went to a familiar tonic -- the get-well point guard. Coming off a pair of off-games, Steve Nash had a six-point, seven-assist third quarter and finished with 17assists in the Suns' 113-111 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Arizona Rattlers to work on improving defense
After two games, the Rattlers are second in scoring in the Arena Football League and second in the coaches' poll. The Rattlers (1-1), which opened the season with a 71-70 overtime loss at No. 1-ranked San Jose (1-0), has not practiced since Saturday's home-opening 71-65 win over the Milwaukee Mustangs. Their next game is Thursday at the Kansas City Command (0-1). Bright and early Sunday morning, the Rattlers will go back to work with the emphasis on defense, coach Kevin Guy said.

Arizona Diamondbacks option Trevor Bauer, make other roster moves
The Diamondbacks optioned right-hander Trevor Bauer to Double-A Mobile and made seven other moves to trim their roster in the closing days of spring training.
