Arizona Cardinals News:

Fitzgerald breast cancer awareness - NFL Videos
Take a glimpse into the emotional story of Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald and his amazing contribution with breast cancer awareness. An extremely heart felt story.

Toler No Longer Braces For Return
It was noticeable when he ran onto the field at University of Phoenix Stadium for the first of his 44 defensive plays against the Miami Dolphins. Toler wasn’t wearing his knee brace.

Detailing Kevin Kolb's Comeback

Word From the Birds Blog | Fisher helps Rams — and keeps Horton here
The Rams, whom the Cardinals face Thursday night, are already improved under new coach Jeff Fisher. That was probably inevitable. Fisher came into St. Louis liking the owner and liking the fact the team already had a franchise quarterback in Sam Bradford. The rest, he could make work, and he has his team at 2-2 — already equaling or surpassing the team’s win total in three of the previous four seasons, including last year’s 2-14 record.

Word From the Birds Blog | Hitting the ground (in St. Louis) running
The Cardinals aren’t running the ball as well as they would like. That’s not a mystery. "It’s disappointing we’re not running the ball better," coach Ken Whisenhunt said, "but that’s something that we can work on. Hopefully we can get better at it."
