Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Daryl Washington
News
Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington has been suspended for the entire 2014 season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He was suspended four games last season for violating the same policy. 

"It's completely unacceptable that Daryl has once again put us in this position," Cards general manager Steve Keim said in a statement. "We all know what the consequences are and will deal with them. From a personal standpoint, our hope is that this suspension will give Daryl the opportunity to accept the necessary help and guidance to get his life back on track and we will certainly support him however we can."

Washington had 134 total tackles and nine sacks in 2012 and 75 total hits and three sacks in 12 games last season.

Ted Larsen
News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday that there's a "really good chance" offensive lineman Ted Larsen will be the team's starting left guard, azcardinals.com reports.

Jonathan Cooper, a first-round pick in 2013, was set to start at the position, but he has remained sidelined with a turf toe injury. General manager Steve Keim called Larsen one of the team's best five linemen in camp thus far. He has been filling in at center with Lyle Sendlein out, but Larsen will likely shift to the left guard position of Sendlein can return to practice as expected this week.

Tony Jefferson
News
Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby, safety Yeremiah Bell and linebacker Dontay Moch were some of the standout players for the defense during a 13-10 win Week 4 at Tampa Bay.

Dansby had a team-high nine tackles -- all solo. Bell totaled seven tackles (four solo, two for loss) and one sack. Moch had two solo tackles, one sack and two quarterback hits. 

Other Cardinals defenders who made an impact Sunday were defensive back Tony Jefferson (seven tackles), linebacker Jasper Brinkley (seven tackles) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (six tackles).

Stepfan Taylor
News
Although Stepfan Taylor has been running ahead of Jonathan Dwyer in training camp, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the running backs are not competing for the backup role behind Andre Ellington. Instead, Arians plans to use each back based on his strengths.

"We have all the confidence in the world in Stepfan and Jonathan," Arians said. "Jonathan had a big, long run (Tuesday) and Stef did an unbelievable job in pass protection. It’s an ongoing thing, and we’ll use them both.

"We won’t really have a two and a three. They’ll have roles and go into games with roles so everybody knows exactly what to expect. And when your number’s called to increase your role, you better be ready."

News
Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said running back Jonathan Dwyer, who got a goal-line touchdown run Saturday against the Vikings, is "exactly" what the team anticipated when it signed him, reports ESPN.com. "Jon can bounce it outside; he has deceptive speed for a big man," Arians said.

Dwyer is competing with Stepfan Taylor for opportunities behind starter Andre Ellington.

Kareem Martin
News
The Cardinals and defensive tackle Kareem Martin have agreed to terms, a source told ESPN. Martin was the team's third-round pick. 

Out of North Carolina, Martin provides excellent size at 6-foot-6 and 272 pounds while sporting a 4.68 in the 40-yard dash.

The team will travel to Minnesota on Aug. 16 for a preseason game against the Vikings.
Earl Watford
News
With the Cardinals' release of Daryn Colledge, second-year pro Earl Watford could start at right guard, according to the team's website. He did not play a snap as a rookie.

“From a physical aspect, he’s probably one of the better guys we’ve got, just as a total athlete from top to bottom,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “We’ve got these evaluation sheets for kids coming out now, and he is always going to read out pretty well. I don’t worry about the physical tools on him at all. In pass protection he’s solid. If he gets his hands on guys, he’s solid.

“It’s all mental for Earl," Goodwin added. "He’s coming along. He’s just got to pick it up some. He’s got to. It’s the NFL. It stands for Not For Long. For Earl, (this season) is big. To me, in my mind, it’s make-or-break from the standpoint of, you’ve got talent, but now it’s about trying to take the next step. And once again, if you can’t do it, we’ve got to go to the next guy.

“Talent is not the issue. It’s maintaining the information he’s learned. When he started here, there was some regurgitation. If we have to start all over again from ground zero, it’s not good.”

Walt Powell
News
The Cardinals signed three draft picks to four-year contracts: fourth-round quarterback Logan Thomas (Virginia Tech), fifth-round defensive lineman Ed Stinson (Alabama) and sixth-round receiver Walt Powell (Murray State).

Andre Ellington
News
The Cardinals would like running back Andre Ellington to get 20 touches per game but want to limit his carries inside the tackles, reports the Arizona Republic. "He's more dangerous 'in space' as a receiver, plus they want to keep him healthy the entire season," the paper said.

Teddy Williams
News
The Cardinals re-signed cornerback Bryan McCann, who was cut at the end of the preseason, after placing wide receiver Teddy Williams on injured reserve. Williams suffered a torn Achillies Week 11 at Jacksonville.
Logan Thomas
News
Cardinals rookie quarterback Logan Thomas showed off his big arm during rookie minicamp workouts this week, the official team website reported

Head coach Bruce Arians said Thomas still needs to get his footwork proper when he drops back. 

"When he knows what he is doing, and the guys around him know what he is doing, he's pretty good," Arians said.

With an outstanding summer of work, Thomas could end up backing up Carson Palmer this season. 

Rashad Johnson

Philip Blake
News
The Cardinals signed five players to their practice squad: linebackers Kenny Rowe and Dontay Moch, safety Curtis Taylor, wideout Kerry Taylor and center/guard Philip Blake.
Robert Hughes
News
Andre Ellington is pretty much locked into the Cardinals' starting running back job heading into training camp, but he won't hog all of the carries. Cards coach Bruce Arians told ESPN that backups Jonathan Dwyer and Robert Hughes have each been a pleasant surprise so far this offseason

"(Dwyer) is in better shape and he's running routes and catching the ball better than I remember," Arians said. "I know he'll pound you and can really run the football. I know he can pass block. But he caught the ball extremely well. He made some catches in the red zone for us. That was a surprise." 

As for Hughes, the former Colts backup rusher, Arians called him "outstanding," citing his toughness, mentality and skill set as strengths. Not only is he a load on his feet but he can also run good routes and catch passes. 

Both have a chance to make the Cardinals final roster. 

Paul Fanaika
News
The addition of Jared Veldheer and the return of left guard Jonathan Cooper should make life easier for the Cardinals when they game plan versus opponents this season. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin admits that the right side of the line will involve a competition but overall he anticipates a huge jump in efficiency for the front five

" ... [T]he world knows we're looking to put the right side together. There is going to be great competition between Paul Fanaika and Ted Larsen and Earl (Watford)," Goodwin told the Arizona Republic. "Then you have Bobby (Massie), Bradley (Sowell) and along with Nate (Potter). The competition is going to be great and there is still the possibility of the draft, but who knows? It wasn't a great offensive line year last year, but the guys played consistently together and they got better as they went along."

Anthony Walters
News
The Cardinals signed linebacker Keenan Clayton and safety Anthony Walters. Clayton has played in 36 games for the Eagles and Raiders, while Walters made 10 special teams tackles for the Bears last year.
