The biggest fear of everyone’s heading into the 2021 NFL season for the Arizona Cardinals and their fans is the health of the veterans they have invested in.

It would not be a Cardinals training camp without making that anxiety turn up just a bit on day one.

According to Darren Urban of the Arizona Cardinals, veteran J.J. Watt tweaked his hamstring in yesterday’s run test and missed practice today and will miss tomorrows as well.

While this is not major news at all, it makes things fun when you see how some fans are already responding.

Is the health of Watt a major story? Absolutely.

Does missing day one and two of camp matter? No, not at all.

However, we know the life of Arizona sports fans, so we tend to look at every hang nail as a major health scare.

Who could blame us at this point?

More from camp as we get the information today.
