It was a big day in Cardinals land. Bruce Arians is getting annoyed at player injuries, Darnell Dockett is done for the season and there were a lot of mental errors on Saturday.
And just like that, shots across the bow. It’s that time of camp when nerves are frayed and games that count are what everyone is looking forward to seeing.

Torn right ACL at Monday's practice costs Cardinals starting defensive lineman
A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Arizona Cardinals training camp:
Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, who tore his ACL and LCL last December, will come off the PUP list Tuesday, and there is now optimism he will play in Arizona's regular-season opener, a league source said.
As he does every day during training camp, Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians addresses the media after the morning walk-through. Here's a recap of what Arians discussed:
With each loss, the foundation built by Cardinals coach Bruce Arians cracked a little more. Arizona will rely on an unlikely source, however, to fill in the gaps.

With an exceptional combination of size, strength and athleticism, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was a potential impact rookie last season. He has his sights set high in 2014 after recovery from a microfracture surgery that kept him off the field.
Thank you, Johnny Manziel, for being as Johnny Manziel as you can possibly be.
Jerry Jones really, really wanted Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft. So much so that his son had to intervene.
Johnny Manziel attracts most of the attention in Cleveland, but he isn't the only young player in position to make major contributions for the Browns.
Alex Boone is still holding out, and though it stands to reason the San Francisco 49ers have offered him something it's unclear what they've offered at this point.
