The news that many seemed to be (anxiously) awaiting has been revealed: Team captains were announced Thursday, with mostly repeats. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and center Lyle Sendlein were named on offense for the second straight year. Kicker Jay Feely gets the nod on special teams. And on defense, defensive tackle Darnell Dockett and safety Adrian Wilson were joined this year by a surprise — linebacker Paris Lenon. It shows the respect Lenon has in the locker room, since the captains are voted on by the players.

Injury-wise, the Cards are in good shape. Only two players failed to practice fully: tight end Jim Dray, who sat out with his pectoral strain, and cornerback Michael Adams, who remains limited after knee surgery. The Panthers did downgrade star linebacker Jon Beason to DNP as he continues to battle a bad ankle.
