Coach Ken Whisenhunt acknowledged Tuesday the possibility the Cards could practice against the Kansas City Chiefs during training camp, during the week between the Cards’ Hall of Fame game against the Saints in Ohio Aug. 5 and the Cards’ game in K.C. against the Chiefs Aug. 10.
“We’ve talked about it,” Whisenhunt said. “There’s nothing really firmed up yet. I’m not opposed to it. We’ve done it before with Tennessee a couple of years ago and I thought it was a great experience. It’s a good chance to evaluate your team against other players. You don’t get a chance to do that unless it’s in a game. When you get more reps and see them in certain situations, it’s a good tool. I hope it’s something we will be able to work out.”
Whisenhunt said there are “a lot of things” that go into the decision. One of which is the travel, because the Cards would be doing a lot of moving around in a short period if they did come back to Arizona in between games (since camp is up in Flagstaff.) “We are still in the process of figuring all that out,” Whisenhunt said. “Part of it is making sure we have facilities. We’ve talked about it and I don’t know if it will get anywhere, but it’s certainly not anything I am opposed to.”
