One of the best and most comprehensive features we do every year is our Footballguys Training Camp Updates. Every week in August, our Bob Henry and his team of Footballguys Staffers cover every player that matters from every NFL team. It's incredible and frankly, probably worth the price of the Footballguys Insider PRO subscription just by itself. Each edition is almost 40 pages long.
While I encourage you to read every word of every week, I also understand Life Happens. And one of the more valuable services Footballguys can add is saving you time. For this article, I had the idea of taking the comprehensive Training Camp Update and distilling it down into 80 proof shots of the "Need To Know" material. Some teams will have more news than others. Because that's how it works in real life. Much of it will be from the Camp Updates, some of it will be my takes but all of it will hopefully be useful to you. And make sure to jump on our Insider PRO subscription to continue seeing this type of stuff all year long. And if this feature is helpful to you, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
Let's get to it.
The Cardinals continue to limit QB Carson Palmer’s workload this preseason to keep him fresh for the regular season.
RB David Johnson changed his diet over the offseason and said he feels more energized. The backup running back spot looks like it is up for grabs with Chris Johnson and Kerwynn Williams battling it out and with Andre Ellington also in the picture.
WR John Brown continues to be sidelined with a quadriceps injury as he’s been limited in practice since early in camp. Coach Bruce Arians is losing patience, “He’s not available,” Arians said. “You’re only as good as when you’re available.” Brown has a sickle-cell trait which can cause leg soreness and fatigue. Arians went on to call Jaron Brown the Cardinals number two wide receiver behind only Larry Fitzgerald.
