Injuries and nicks and bruises are beginning to creep up already in the Arizona Cardinals training camp.

Mike Jenkins, the newly signed veteran cornerback, has a broken bone in his hand according to head coach Bruce Arians. He will not practice today, his return will be dependent on how his hand is.

On top of that, veteran defensive tackle Red Bryant and tight end Jermaine Gresham both will miss practice today with minor strains.

According to Adam Green of Arizona Sports Bryant's is a minor achilles issue while Gresham has a hamstring issue.

Neither is considered serious, but with the way training camp is going early on, it would be nice to see these little nagging injuries not happening to potentially important players.

In semi breaking news, Coach Bruce Arians said that Robert Nkemdiche's ankle sprain is a two week injury, so he may not be ready to go until preseason game number two.

The Arizona Cardinals need a healthy training camp, so nagging injuries early are slightly disappointing, but they're better than the alternative.
