The end of the preseason is here. The Arizona Cardinals will take on the Denver Broncos in each team's preseason finale before they have to make final cuts to get to 53 players on their active roster. But, being the preseason finale, it isn't just like watching Peyton Manning and Carson Palmer. They will be the backups and guys battling for just a spot on the roster.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said no starters will play. That will be with one exception. Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who has missed all the other three preseason games because of a hamstring injury, will play some on Thursday. Likewise, veteran running back Chris Johnson is due to get 10-12 carries. But it will be undrafted rookie tryout Phillip Sims who will start at quarterback for the Cardinals and not Carson Palmer. Sims will play the first half and Logan Thomas will the second half.
