Arizona Cardinals: Don’t look for some to get much action in Atlanta
The Arizona Cardinals go on the road for the preseason week number three against the Atlanta Falcons
Some starters got a good chance to see some action last Saturday for the Arizona Cardinals. This Saturday, look for about the same against the Atlanta Falcons.
Quarterback Carson Palmer will start. Also starting will be running back David Johnson and receiver Larry Fitzgerald. However don’t look for them to see too much action.
On Monday, coach Bruce Arians hinted at the idea that we may not see much more of either of them this week than we did this past weekend. For many of us, that is just fine.
The only drawback to these guys not playing much is they won’t see game action for another two weeks after that on September 10th. The idea of keeping them healthy though is better as the team tries to make another run at the Super Bowl.
There really isn’t going to be much either of them can prove. For that matter there isn’t much for Palmer to prove either but it does become a little more important for signal caller to be in a rhythm.

None of them will play against the Denver Broncos on August 31st. As long as the Cardinals can get out of the first half this Saturday in Atlanta, then they will have avoided injury to their stars.
The beginning of the season will be a challenge. The Cardinals go to Detroit and then Indianapolis for the first two weeks of the season. Week three is a home date on national television against the Dallas Cowboys. Not brutal but not easy either.
Their top three stars will see plenty of action once the regular season starts. For now, we can call enjoy watching some others battle out for positions on the 53-man roster. There will be a lot of cut-downs after the Denver game.
This week’s game at the Falcons could prove vital for many however. It is possible the Cardinals will cut down below 90 before Denver even happens.
