All the news and notes from the Arizona Cardinals joint practice from Tuesday night.

While the Arizona Cardinals wait to hear about their head coach, they still had business to take care of at practice on Tuesday, in their first joint effort with the San Diego Chargers.

Anyway, here are some thoughts from practice today and the press conferences before.

Troy Niklas getting some work with the first team means that we are finally seeing the progression in Niklas. He’s a young, talented athlete, maybe it is finally clicking.

It is exciting to think that Tyrann Mathieu is getting closer and closer.

Health is beginning to pick up for the Arizona Cardinals, just waiting on Robert Nkemdiche.

A lot of grabbing from the Arizona Cardinals.

Change in tune once out of Cards camp and facing other players. There is something to be said for not knowing what your opponent is going to do. In camp, the defense tends to cheat, even subconsciously, because they know what their team does. Now? It is all new.

It also helps that he is going against really good route runners in Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and now Keenan Allen.

Classy fans and people in San Diego.

Good to see the defense step up in 11 on 11 time.

That’s it, we’ll keep you updated on Bruce Arians as more information comes in.
