The Arizona Cardinals are at the required 75 man rosters, but there was a lot more news than that from today and Bruce Arians press conference.
Here was what we learned today.
DB Tyrann Mathieu in uniform for practice today.— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 30, 2016
Good news on the injury front, but I am sure that Mathieu will be on the sideline come Thursday.
Bruce Arians says WR John Brown and DB Tyrann Mathieu have been cleared to play.— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) August 30, 2016
Remember last week when... Never mind. It is good to see Brown cleared to play, but with this injury, I will take it as day to day until he is back for 100% of work and practice.
Arians: "we really upgraded our running game because of the right side." Mathis, Humphries upgrade over Larsen, Massie, per Arians— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 30, 2016
I don’t think I have talked about how good Humphries has been in the run game enough. That’s on me. I’ll try and rectify that this week or next.
Asked when the Cardinals will start looking at the Patriots, Arians smiled. "May."— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 30, 2016
Only hard part with that is the offense. Obviously no Tom Brady makes things slightly easier, but there is so much less information on Jimmy Garoppolo.
Arians reiterated that CB Justin Bethel, who might not play Thurs with a sore foot, is going to have play with the injury all season.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) August 30, 2016
I am curious as to what is wrong with Bethel and his foot. I don’t understand how this is lingering so long.
Feel free to use this thread as the evening discussion if there is anything else to talk about.
