8/12 Arizona Cardinals news: Getting back to practice, Mendenhall still questionable

USA TODAY Sports

Back to the daily grind with the Cardinals in Monday's links.

The Cardinals returned to practice Sunday and they're still missing a few notable players. There were plenty of positive takeaways from their first preseason appearance but head coach Bruce Arians knows the team has some areas to improve upon. One thing's for sure: despite the haircut, everything is working out with rookie Tyrann Mathieu.
