Some notes and quotes from Ken Whisenhunt’s lunchtime presser in advance of the lone night practice of camp:
— Quarterback Kevin Kolb took part in the morning walk-through and he will practice tonight in the Cards’ lone night practice at Lumberjack Stadium, although he will be limited. “The issue is it tightens up a little bit standing around, so I have to keep it warm,” Kolb said. “I did the best I could today and we’ll see what happens, keep progressing every day.”
— Whether running back Ryan Williams plays Sunday will likely be determined that day. Williams said he’ll tell the team how he feels, and Whisenhunt said Williams and head athletic trainer Tom Reed have developed a good enough relationship during rehab that it works that way. “I’d like for him to get in for a couple of plays, but he may not feel that way,” Whisenhunt said. Because there are no inactives in the preseason, Williams could dress and then they can make a call on the fly if they wanted to.
— We already knew running back Beanie Wells could come off the PUP list next week in Kansas City, but Whiz said tight end Jeff King — on the PUP list with his quad injury — could also be back soon. King could start practicing next week as well, Whisenhunt said, and if not then, then the week of the Oakland game.
— A reminder that because newly refurbished Lumberjack Stadium only has seating for 1,000 fans, admission into the stadium for tonight’s practice (starts at 7:15 p.m.) will be limited to those 1,000. Fans will still be welcome to watch in the areas surrounding the field outside of the chain-link fence at the stadium, although fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or portable seats.
