Everyone Practices; Blackout Deadline Looms


For the first time all season, everyone on the roster of the Arizona Cardinals practiced on Wednesday.  Wow.  First time?  That truly is amazing.  Even though there are those that are still banged up, everyone made it to the practice field.  Let’s hope that translates to everyone healthy for the game on Sunday against the Houston Texans.  It is nice to hear that receivers Steve Breaston and Anquan Boldin practiced.  I think the bye week certainly came a good time to get everyone healthy for a tough stretch of games coming up here in October. 

Also, the Cardinals haven’t announced how close they are to a sellout, however the deadline to avoid a blackout is coming up rather quickly here at 1:15 this afternoon.  The NFL can extend that by 24 hours if requested.  I’m betting that will be the case.  It is interesting that we haven’t heard anything on this though since Tuesday.  That may mean something is in the works to get those 1,500 remaining tickets sold.  Here’s hoping.
