Arizona Cardinals vs Los Angeles Chargers: Preview, 2019 preseason opener
By Scott Allen
Cardinals: Outside of Murray, they’ve also added OL Marcus Gilbert, OL J.R. Sweezy, LB Jordan Hicks, LB Terrell Suggs, QB Brett Hundley, WR Michael Crabtree
Chargers: QB Tyrod Taylor, DT Jerry Tillery, LB Thomas Davis
The Cardinals could be without WR Andy Isabella, OL Justin Pugh, and S D.J. Swearinger on Thursday night. In fact Pugh is going to miss a couple of weeks but is not considered a serious injury suffered to his shoulder.
Swearinger just returned to practice on Monday and his along with Isabella’s status is up in the air. Even if healthy, why risk either player at this point?
The Cardinals game will gain live national coverage on NFL Network. They will show all 65 preseason games, however most will be on tape delay. The network has chosen to show this game and week three’s game at Minnesota live.
Of course that has all to do with Murray and Kingsbury. Kingsbury said Murray will start but may only see a few plays, maybe as many as 10-12. It will depend on game situation and how Murray feels about how things are going.
After Thursday night’s game, the Cardinals will be off on Friday and return to practice Saturday afternoon 1-3 p.m. They will also practice Sunday and Monday and will be off until their week two preseason game at home on Thursday August 15th against the Oakland Raiders.
