If you’ve been keeping up with training camp news, then you’ll know that the Arizona Cardinals are very excited about Carson Palmer and Tyrann Mathieu, both of whom seem to be fully recovered from injuries. Palmer took the helm for the opening drive in the first preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and executed beautifully, throwing 4 for 4 for 77 yards before sitting down for the day.
In the Cornerback position, Mathieu intercepted a pass from Alex Smith and returned it 26 yards to end the Chiefs opening drive. Mathieu’s stellar training camp performance still raises questions as to whether or not he’d make a great running back. For the time being, Andre Ellington has the RB position, thanks to his ability to catch the ball as well as run it. Ellington caught the ball for 57 yards on the opening drive and had the first touchdown afterwards. Coaches and fans are also hopeful Michael Floyd will be ready at wide receiver by the start of the regular season after suffering a hand injury during training camp.

The Cardinals preseason game against the Chiefs was also historic for another reason. Sarah Thomas, the NFL’s first female official took the field as the NFL’s first female coach of any kind, Cardinals linebacker coach, Jen Welter, stood on the sidelines.
