The Arizona Cardinals got back to work on Tuesday to get prepared for the Oakland Raiders on Saturday night.
Of course, to begin the day as always is Bruce Arians on what is going on with the Arizona Cardinals as we move towards Saturday.
Bruce Arians says WR John Brown will be a part-time practice player today. D.J. Humphries will get another day off. #CardsCamp— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) August 8, 2017
Let’s call this preseason game one... This is not a big deal, but it is at least on the radar of maybe being important.
Arians: If CB Justin Bethel keeps playing how he's playing right now, he's going to have a very good year.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) August 8, 2017
I am hopeful. Bethel needs to turn out and put the Cardinals under pressure to bring him back in 2018.
However... I feel like I have heard this before.
Bruce Arians says he's not too pleased with either punter who is competing for a job. Notes there are more games to evaluate.— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) August 8, 2017
Arians looking for more from both punters, Richie Leone and Matt Wile. Mentioned that Cards might look elsewhere if they don't.— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) August 8, 2017
I feel like this should have been addressed, but they did spend a lot on Phil Dawson, so maybe that was a lot of their specials budget?

Brown’s play is going to be important for the Cardinals in 2017. Either that or the Cardinals will need Chad Williams to be ready sooner than expected.

This is actually a great video that shows the difference in how Chandler Jones wins and how Markus Golden wins. You can see Jones looking to use his length and try and get the edge... Golden is going through you.
TJ Logan at practice, left arm in a sling. Apparently has had surgery— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 8, 2017
BA' Budda "Very decisive and when he’s decisive, he’s fast. He’s not afraid stick it up in there and hit and tackle. Extremely good tackler"— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) August 8, 2017
Budda Baker is so good, he’s going to be so good. Health please.
Phil Dawson perfect in practice today, up to 58 yards. #AzCardinals— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 8, 2017
On the other hand, this is really good and important to the Arizona Cardinals.
Byron Leftwich calling in plays to Palmer in this session. Interesting. #AzCardinals— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 8, 2017
I am not going to speculate, but I am speculating that maybe Leftwich could be the heir apparent.
Nkemdiche jumps at Stanton hard count again. Happened almost daily at camp. #AzCardinals— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 8, 2017
Scooby Wright coming to earth a bit last few days. Probably should pump brakes on idea of breakout player of the year— Kent Somers (@kentsomers) August 8, 2017
Scooby’s strenght as a player was always playing downhill when the play is in front of him. The NFL needs you to do more than that. Is he an NFL player?

Nothing easier than this for the Arizona Cardinals. Carson Palmer to Larry Fitzgerald.
