Notes from the final tune up before the Arizona Cardinals take on the LA Chargers.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals-Training Camp Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

It is the final practice for the Arizona Cardinals before they open the 2018 preseason and there is plenty to digest.

Let's get to it.

Chad Williams is back

After missing two practices, second year wide receiver Chad Williams is back in the mix. He's had a nice camp thus far, but none of it matters if he's in the sidelines with an injury.

Knee tendinitis is no joke, so it'll be something to watch moving forward...

Speaking of...

Robert Nkemdiche exits practice early

Steve Wilks isn't worried about Nkemdiche's knee, but tendinitis to a big man, whose game is predicated on explosiveness and change of direction is always a bit of a concern. Nkemdiche has been the best defensive player in camp so far, that's the good part.

Let's hope the knee thing is just from a physical training camp.

All four quarterbacks will play Saturday

An important game for Sam Bradford in just getting back to live action. I'd be shocked if he was in for more than a series.

From there, nothing else matters but Josh Rosen's work.

If he's bad, it's just the preseason.

If he's good, it's just the preseason.

However, you'd much prefer to be termpering expectations than justifying poor play.

That's it for this week at camp.

The Cardinals will be without 2/3 of their starting linebacker group, but that's alright, the backups need work. A lot of work.

We'll start our coverage for the preseason tomorrow morning.
