With the first preseason game two days away against the Los Angeles Chargers, these three Arizona Cardinals players we should pay attention to
Don’t blink because the preseason is here for the Arizona Cardinals. Also, if you are a fan of a particular player, there is a chance you may not get to see a lot of him in a Cardinals uniform for long.
There are 90 players currently on the roster. Only 53 of them will make the regular season roster. There are four preseason games to evaluate players. Some will only get a game or two to show what they have before they possibly could be cut.
So which three players should we have our eyes on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Chargers? There will be more, but these three have been making noise in camp.
Receiver Greg Little:
He hasn’t played in the regular season since 2014. However he has looked very good in camp according to reports.
Receiver Trent Sherfield:
Speaking of depth at receiver. Right now based on the depth chart, Sherfield won’t make this team, but he too has had a good camp so far.
He is going to get a good look at here in the first couple of games. I’m not sure if he has enough to overtake any of the six guys in front of him but it should be fun watching him try.
Center Mason Cole:
I imagine there will be a lot of eyes on the performance of Cole this week as he has been elevated to number one on the depth chart after the season-ending injury to A.Q. Shipley last weekend. It is a big game on Saturday for the rookie from Michigan.
Cole is going to have to prove he deserves the shot to be the starter come regular season. A week ago some weren’t too sure about his progress. The Cardinals have no choice at the moment but to thrust him to number one and see how he does.
