We are four days into training camp and it is already starting to take its toll.
For the Arizona Cardinals, the key to the 2017 season is not just about the players taking the next step, it is also about key players staying healthy and on the field.
Through three practices, that has happened, but we are starting to see some of the “depth guys” take a tumble.
Bruce Arians says Alani Fua and Ironhead Gallon suffered knee injuries yesterday, awaiting MRI results.— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) July 25, 2017
Injury update from Arians: LB Alani Fua and S Ironhead Gallon both have knee issue. Checking on status. DT Ed Stinson hamstring.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) July 25, 2017
For Ed Stinson and especially Alani Fua, this could be trouble, as they have had issues with missing time before.
Ironhead Gallon is a tough one, you feel for the kid trying to make his mark.
Arians said Justin Bethel has had all good days. Notes now if JB gives up a play he bounces back. Has learned important amnesia.— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) July 25, 2017
Outside of turning and finding the ball in flight, this was probably Justin Bethel’s second biggest issue. He always seemed like the type of guy who, once he gave up one play, couldn’t stop the snowball. If he is learning that every corner, especially the one across from Patrick Peterson, gets beat, he’ll be in a good spot.
BA believes Haason Reddick's coverage ability is "best we've ever had" at LB. High praise with Bucannon, D-Wash in past.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) July 25, 2017
Wonder where this falls on the spectrum of Bruce Arians hyperbole?
BA: CB Jumal Rolle & CB Eli Bouka out two weeks.— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) July 25, 2017
I am going to guess this spells the end for both guys, unless another injury pops up. We will wait and see.
BA "I thought it was the worst day of wide receiver play we’ve had in five years. We must have dropped five touchdowns & eight other plays"— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) July 25, 2017
Bad day for pass catchers yesterday.
I assume Arians is doing this for you A.P. Andes.
I think a lot of people are going to be surprised by Logan this year. He is an extremely talented, versatile player who can fill a number of roles for the Cardinals.
Looks like a veteran day off for Fitz, Rucker, Dansby. All watching practice in shorts.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) July 25, 2017
That’s a nice rep for Dorian Johnson. You’d like to see Robert Nkemdiche disengage just a bit sooner with his hands, but strong rep from Johnson.
Justin Bethel with a near-interception, a tackle and a pass deflection on consecutive snaps. Looking good.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) July 25, 2017
Bethel... Might... Be... Good. Shhh.
Scooby Wright came up with an interception on a tipped pass. Heard some "Scooooooby!" from the crowd. #CardsCamp— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) July 25, 2017
Nice play from Scooby, but I’d love to know who tipped the pass as well.
S Budda Baker ripped out a ball for a fumble and recovery, but play was ruled dead. Defensive teammates weren't happy with the call.— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) July 25, 2017
I am so excited to watch Budda Baker play for the Arizona Cardinals.
Scooby Wright likes to hit.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) July 25, 2017
I’ll probably regret my Zaviar Gooden over Scooby Wright pick for the 53 man roster.
No injury notes, as of yet.
Have a good night everyone.
