It should be a game where we will get to see many of the starters play, including rookie quarterback Kyler Murray. The plan right now is for him to play at least the first half.
There are still plenty of job up for grabs however, so look for most everyone who is healthy enough to play. It will likely be out last look at the starters until the opener in two weeks against the Lions.
It has been a busy week for the Cardinals. The closed up camp last weekend but have been busy wheeling and dealing. They just signed receiver Michael Crabtree on Wednesday night.
On Thursday, the Cardinals traded 2017 draft pick safety Rudy Ford to the Philadelphia Eagles for defensive tackle Bruce Hector. The Cardinals are a bit thin on the defensive line at the moment. Ford was expected to be on the bubble come cut time next week.
