The new rules of the collective bargaining agreement will make for a short week of practice. Because players must get four consecutive days off, it means the best way to get two days in is Tuesday and Wednesday work, which is what the Cards will begin today.
As for what they can accomplish in those two days, coach Ken Whisenhunt was specific.
“We can work on a lot of the things we’re having issues with right now,” he said. “We’re going to have a couple of third-down periods where we just focus on third downs. We’re going to work on some red-zone situations.
“I mean competitive reps against the defense so you’re getting live looks and having to make the reads and make those plays. That can help us and give us a little more concentrated effort on the areas we need.”
The Cardinals would then be off Thursday through Sunday and then return to a practice Monday. A week from today would be a normal day off as the Cards get back into a regular routine before the Pittsburgh game.
