|GLENDALE Trent Brown Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals wrapped up their shortest training camp in recent memory Wednesday with a workout at University of Phoenix Stadium.
The Cardinals reported on July 27 for their first camp under new coach Steve Wilks and scattered a handful of outdoor practices in the desert heat with workouts inside the air conditioned stadium.
“I thought we really came down here and accomplished a lot,” Wilks said, “most importantly trying to emphasize and focus on the fundamentals and techniques of the game, trying to create that mindset, the physicality and most importantly the effort that’s going to sustain us throughout the year.”
Arizona plays its second preseason game at New Orleans on Friday night and will resume practices Sunday on the other side of suburban Phoenix at the Cardinals practice facility in Tempe.
The camp lasted less than three weeks.
“My mindset is to try to frontload on the front end,” Wilks said. “I want to get back to Tempe so I can get these guys into a routine of how it’s going to be during the season and really starting to get their mind right and most importantly get their legs back underneath them.”
Rookie quarterback Josh Rosen, who figures to get some time with the first unit against the Saints, said he learned a lot in the camp and he’s looking forward to getting a chance to play with the starters.
“It’s awesome I get to run with really good players,” he said Cameron Jordan Jersey , “hopefully complete a ball to Larry (Fitzgerald) and keep playing whether it’s ones, twos or threes.”
Wilks said Rosen had a good practice Wednesday.
He “looked real good today and I’m hoping that can translate over to the game on Friday,” Wilks said. “He’s still learning, he’s still growing. He’s a rookie and he’s going to have some bumps here and there. But the guy has a short-term memory, which is great, and he’s a great competitor.”
Sam Bradford still has a firm hold on the starting quarterback job and figures to get more snaps than he did in the preseason opener, when he played one series and threw just one pass — a 6-yard completion — in Arizona’s 24-17 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Cardinals, under what has become known as “the plan,” have brought Bradford along slowly as he comes back from his latest knee injury. Bradford had regular days off during the camp.
“Like you guys have heard me talk about a million times Andre Branch Jersey ,” Bradford said, “just the plan that we had kind of put together when I got here in the spring and then at the end of the spring talked about training camp and having that plan in place and really sticking to that plan. I think my knee feels really good right now. I think my body’s in a great place and so I think that those days off have come at the right time and kept my body where it is.”
Notes: Wilks said WR Brice Butler probably would miss the Saints game with a foot injury sustained during practice earlier this week. … The Cardinals re-signed S Harlan Miller and waived/injured CB Lou Young III. Miller played in seven games for Arizona the past two seasons.
Making the Super Bowl this season isn’t totally on the minds of the Arizona Cardinals at present. They’re setting daily goals of improvement amid injury rehabilitation. While the Super Bowl is the end goal, of course, new Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks had a different kind of message for his players after they arrived at the team facility Tuesday for the first day of the offseason conditioning program.
“He always speaks about ‘Let’s not talk about the Super Bowl,’ and that’s one thing that I admire,” veteran linebacker Chandler Jones said of Wilks. “You can get sidetracked looking at the Super Bowl. You kind of have to look at the steps leading to there.”
The Cardinals have plenty of steps ahead of them. After an 8-8 season lowlighted by injuries, coach Bruce Arians retired, as did quarterback Carson Palmer. Wilks was hired and a new coaching staff, along with several new players Derrick Thomas Jersey , have begun preparations for this season.
One big task at the outset of workouts is getting to know new teammates and new coaches. It’s a work in progress, but Wilks’ message and theme of “win the day” seemed to strike a chord with veterans who remain from the Arians regime.
“Everybody is excited to build a strong foundation for what we’re trying to do here. Everything is focused on the details,” said offensive lineman D.J. Humphries, who battled knee injuries and was limited to five games last season. “Everybody’s trying to get to the Super Bowl, but you can’t get there looking into the stars that day. All the small things have to add up.”
Tuesday was for weight room work and running on the practice field as players get back into shape. Strength and conditioning coach Buddy Morris said while it was a good day he didn’t like everything he saw from the players.
“I saw some great things. I saw some things that make me want to go home and drink heavily,” Morris said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, obviously … fatigue is always going to be a factor in everything.”
The Cardinals have a number of players on the mend looking for bounce-back seasons. Star running back David Johnson, who severely injured his wrist in Week 1 and didn’t play again, appears to be back to full range of motion.
“He’s a freak Amara Darboh Jersey ,” Morris said. “I have to protect David from David, because he always wants to load the bar with more and more weight.”
New quarterback Sam Bradford participated in Tuesday’s workout and is coming back from a knee injury that cost him most of last season with Minnesota. Bradford has a history of knee surgeries.
“We’ll identify what Sam needs to do and put him on a program that’s based on him the individual,” Morris said.
NOTES: Humphries, who plays left tackle, said he’d be ready to start the season. … The Cardinals announced that the team’s four exclusive rights free agents – CB C.J. Goodwin, RB Elijhaa Penny, DL Olsen Pierre and OL John Wetzel – have all signed their one-year contracts for the 2018 season. Wetzel started 11 games and Pierre seven last season.
