Not a lot of news yet from Bruce Arians at training camp, in part because the Cards still haven’t had a practice yet (and even when they do today, it’ll be without pads. No pads until Monday.) But here are some quick tidbits:

"He’s lucky to be alive," Arians said. "He’s got a shattered jaw, he’s got a neck brace on where the bullet went through his neck. When he’s cleared, then we could possibly talk about bringing him back off that injury list."
