Things are a bit different, but we have to adjust.
Here is some of the news and notes from day one of Arizona Cardinals training camp 2020.

But ... Here. We. Go.#CardsCamp pic.twitter.com/XwE7raQ0nm
No fans, limited press, but we are back to football.
We have reached an agreement with the @NFL to continue daily testing through September 5th. We will continue to monitor positivity rates within each club and relevant information from each team community to inform our assessment of testing frequency ahead of the regular season.— NFLPA (@NFLPA) August 12, 2020
The NFL told clubs today the positivity rate of COVID-19 tests among all players and other Tier 1 and Tier 2 personnel through the first two weeks of training camp has been less than 1%. But daily testing will continue “until further notice.” pic.twitter.com/M1Eg88VVQG— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 12, 2020
NFL continues to be out in front of Covid, keeping daily testing going, trying to keep things as on track as possible. NBA and NHL have had success thus far.
Kliff Kingsbury, offensive guru, named the top three things he will be watching in camp:— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) August 12, 2020
* CB Robert Alford
* Defensive line
Kliff Kingsbury understands that his offensive improvement in 2019 was good, and the defensive improvement will be key to him getting to continue to build on that.
Fourth-round pick Rashard Lawrence said Kyler Murray has introduced himself and made an effort to get to know all the rookies. “That goes a long way.”— Kyle Odegard (@Kyle_Odegard) August 12, 2020
Kyler Murray may not be the extrovert, outspoken leader type, but he has shown that he understands the role and how to be a leader for the Arizona Cardinals.
FWIW: The order of WR @K1 threw to today in the open portion of practice was Fitz - Hopkins - Kirk - Isabella. #12Sports pic.twitter.com/b46LbTWXjY— Ryan Cody (@RyanThomasCody) August 12, 2020
Just boys having fun.
That was mostly it on day one. Not much going on with the non-padded, Covid-19 practice, but they are back to work. We’ll have more as the training camp trudges along, hopefully with more information coming out.
