Arizona Cardinals: Welcome to training camp
The Arizona Cardinals report for training camp on Friday in Glendale
It is the day many of us have been waiting for. The Arizona Cardinals officially report as a team to begin their march towards the 2017 regular season.
Friday was reporting day for the team. First practice will take place on Saturday from 2:00-4:30 p.m. at University of Phoenix Stadium.
The Cardinals made a couple of roster moves today as the players gathered at the Renaissance Hotel in Glendale. They placed linebacker Deone Bucannon on the Physically Unable to Play list. They also placed linebacker Jarvis Jones on the active non-football-injury list.
We already knew that Bucannon was going to miss camp. He likely will miss the first week or two of the regular season as well. However Coach Bruce Arians said that he is optimistic he could return week one in Detroit according to azcardinals.com’s Darren Urban.
The team had their run test at the stadium today. No word on if anyone failed but there was no news reported on that, so it would seem all went fine.
It is just great to see the team back on the field in any capacity. The bad taste of 2016 is behind us and 2017 is upon us.
The Cardinals have less than two weeks to prepare for their first preseason game. They travel to Canton Ohio for the Pro Football Hall of Fame game that takes place on Thursday August 3rd against the Dallas Cowboys.
That game will be mainly to see the younger guys. Nevertheless it is still an official preseason game. Just a little over seven weeks until the Cardinals kick off the regular season. It will be here before you know it.
The Cardinals are scheduled to practice everyday this week. All practice times are 2:00-4:30. Next Saturday will be the Red-White team scrimmage.
