The Cardinals were among the teams that wrapped up training camp Thursday, and they exited with just two notable injuries.
First-round draft pick Chris Wells is nursing a gimpy ankle that prevented him from playing in the preseason opener against the Steelers. Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt was uncertain about Wells’ status for Saturday night’s home game against the Chargers, but the coach said he would like to have the rookie in for a few snaps.
Cardinals WR Steve Breaston injured his knee against the Steelers and hasn’t returned to practice. He’s expected to miss the game against the Chargers and likely will be replaced Jerehme Urban as the No. 3 receiver.
A couple of other training camp notes:
- While it’s not camp news, per se, it’s worth passing along that WR Larry Fitzgerald restructured his contract to help the team create some extra salary-cap room, according to Darren Urban of azcardinals.com. “I volunteered,” Fitzgerald said. “I told them if they needed something I wouldn’t hesitate. They said they needed it.”
- Urban also posted a story on backup QB Matt Leinart, who believes his time will come.
