Max Starks leads the way with snap counts for Arizona Cardinals vs. Houston Texans

Just a look at the preseason playing time.

Preseason snap counts always are misleading because of the "shift changes" that go on. But nonetheless, let's look at who got what playing time.


Among the quarterbacks, Logan Thomas led the way with 42 snaps. Drew Stanton got 30 snaps and Carson Palmer played 10 snaps.

Among the running backs, Stepfan Taylor got the most work with 24 snaps. Jalen Parmele was next with 16, Zach Bauman with 16, Jonathan Dwyer with 16 as well, Andre Ellington 10. Robert Hughes also played nine snaps.

Among the wideouts, Brittan Golden and Jaron Brown each played 39 snaps. Dan Buckner played 36, John Brown played 32, Walt Powell 29, Kevin Ozier 19 and Larry Fitzgerald 10.

Of the tight ends, Darren Fells played 46 snaps, Troy Niklas 36, Andre Hardy 16, Rob Housler eight and John Carlson seven.

The offensive linemen were led by tackle Max Starks. He played 54 snaps, the most of anyone on the team. Bradley Sowell played 42, JOhn Estes 42, Jonathan Cooper 40, Ted Larsen 40, Philip Blake 40, Earl Watford 30, Tom Draheim 26, Anthony Steen 18, Kevin Palmer 18 and Bobby Massie, Paul Fanaika and Jared Veldheer played 10 snaps.


Linebacker Alex Okafor played the most with 33 snaps, which make sense because he needs the most work after playing only five snaps in his rookie season.

On the defensive line, Ed Stinson led with 24 snaps. Christian Tupou played 23, Kareem Martin played 20, Frostee Rucker 19, Bruce Gaston nine, Anthony McCloud six, Dan Williams four, Calais Campbell three, Darnell Dockett three and Justin Renfrow two.

Okafor led the linebackers with 33. After that, it was Marcus Benard with 28, Kennt Demens with 23, Glenn Carson with 13, Jonathan Brown with 13, Lorenzo Alexander with 12, Derrell Johnson with six, Adrian Tracy with six, Larry Foote with six, Matt Shaughnessy and Kevin Minter each with five, Sam Acho with four and JoJo Dickson and Keenan Clayton with three.

Justin Bethel and Bryan McCann led the defensive backs with 29. Anthony Walters played 26. Then it was Deone Bucannon with 24, Teddy Williams with 23, Curtis Taylor with 23, Eddie Whitley with 14, Brandon Sermons with 10, Orhian Johnson with 10, Jimmy Legree with nine, Tony Jefferson, Patrick Peterson and Rashad Johnson with six and Jerraud Powers with three.

We'll see how playing time shakes out against Minnesota. The plan is that Logan Thomas and Chandler Catanzaro will sit, with Ryan Lindley playing and Jay Feely kicking.
