Arizona Cardinals: Thursday camp news


The Arizona Cardinals did not practice on Thursday, their first day off since camp started last Friday

The Arizona Cardinals had the day off from practice but they still made news nonetheless.  Of course the biggest news is about one of their top receivers, Michael Floyd.  Floyd dislocated three fingers on Wednesday during practice.

Initially feared broken and a 10-12 week recovery period, the dislocated fingers were surgically repaired and his time frame is now an optimistic 3-5 weeks, meaning there is a chance he could be ready for the season opener.  Even he isn’t ready for the opener, he should be shortly after that.

Other Cardinals news on Thursday saw them release two players from the roster.  Tight end Ted Bolser was cut, along with guard John Fullington.  Fullington ends up on waivers but because he is injured if he goes unclaimed, then the Cardinals can place him on injured reserve.

The Cardinals were off on Thursday.  Per the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, players are required at least one day off a week.  So thankfully no new injuries to talk about after 13 guys missed practice on Wednesday for various injuries.

The Cardinals will be back at it on Friday from 2:00-4:30pm at University of Phoenix Stadium.  Then on Saturday the Cardinals will have their annual Red/White Scrimmage at the same time at the stadium.  Then the players will have Sunday off.

The Cardinals will practice everyday next week except Friday in preparation for the their first preseason game next Saturday night when they host the Kansas City Chiefs. That game will be at 6:00pm.
