Arizona Cardinals: Palmer sits, Humphries hurt, NFL Network arrives


The Arizona Cardinals completed their fourth day of practice on Tuesday

The Arizona Cardinals were on NFL Network on Tuesday.  They were part of the NFL Training Camp Primetime.  Former Cardinals quarterback abnd current NFL Network analyst Kurt Warner was on with former Cardinals running back and current Cardinals radio analyst Ron Wolfey this afternoon.

It was maybe not the best day to show off the Cardinals to the country though.  Starting quarterback Carson Palmer sat and first-round draft pick D.J. Humphries hurt his knee.  At least they got to see what receiver Jaron Brown has been up to.

Palmer sat on Tuesday but not because he was hurt.  Head coach Bruce Arians said he is rotating the quarterbacks giving them a day off.  Today Palmer sat and tomorrow backup quarterback Drew Stanton will sit.  It’s a smart move given their injuries last season.  Palmer said this was the first time he ever missed practice and was healthy.

As for tackle Humphries, he came up limping in camp today and had to go to the locker room.  He did go off on own power but gingerly.  Preliminary reports are that the injury is not thought to be serious but they will be running more tests on him on Wednesday.

Brown had his second good day in a row.  He made what everyone is calling the catch of training camp so far.  He went up and grabbed a ball with one hand falling backwards.  Also having a good day was defensive end Calais Campbell who caught a tip for an interception.

Other news from camp on Tuesday saw the Cardinals make a roster move. The Cardinals cut cornerback Damond Smith and signed cornerback Jonte Green.  Green was last with the Buffalo Bills in April and spent two years with the Detroit Lions before that.  That certainly won’t be the last move they make.  remember, general manager Steve Keim is always watching the waiver wire.

The Cardinals next practice on Wednesday from 2-4:30pm.  They will be off on Thursday.
