After the Arizona Cardinals had their final practice before their preseason game on Sunday, head coach Ken Whisenhunt discussed s few things with the press. One such tidbit was about running back Ryan Williams, who, accoording to Whiz, will sit out Sunday's Hall of Fame game against the New Orleans Saints.

"We said all along we were going to be conservative with that," Whisenhunt said. "He really pushed it hard this week, especially that Wednesday night, and he's got a little bit of soreness. I don't want to risk it."

The last comment about how Whiz doesn't want to risk it is interesting. Everything Williams said before made it seem like it was going to be his decision.

Additionally, Darren Urban tweeted that safety Adrian Wilson had a mild calf injury and would be surprised if he played. He cited the fact that the starters would only play a series or two and Wilson would be fine without it, especially with an extra preseason game.
