Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury will take the tact of who plays and who doesn’t in preseason depending on player and situation
In his press conference on Saturday prior to the team’s Red-White Practice at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury spoke on a number of topics. One of those topics was preseason games and who we would see play.
Kingsbury said he won’t have a particular philosophy when it comes to who will or won’t play. From the sounds of it, don’t expect to see too much of the veteran starters.
He spoke of running back David Johnson. He did say he was feeling good, looking good. He could see just a bit of time, however expect him to be standing on the sidelines for most of it.
He did stress though it would be a on a case by case basis and won’t just say none of the veterans would play. He said though it is a time for those name players to take a back seat and give guys who are fighting for spots to get time on the field.
He was also asked a question about what he expected out of the receiving group on Saturday. He said all the receivers are fairly close to one another in competition so he is looking for receivers to step up in Saturday’s Red-White Practice. He would like to see some separation at the position.
As for this Thursday’s preseason opener, he was asked how much we should expect to see Kyler Murray. He said he doesn’t know at this point, it will all come down to how Murray feels.
He said it could be three plays, it could be 10-12 plays. So, for now, expect to see him but how much will not be determined until the game Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers.
