Coach Ken Whisenhunt just addressed the media to open camp. The key highlights:
— LB Gerald Hayes will start camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list, as expected. Hayes has been dealing with back problems since last season, and had a surgical procedure this offseason when rehab wasn’t effective. Whisenhunt said Hayes’ surgery was the same that LB Monty Beisel had last year for his back problems. Hayes is able to come off at any time, and Whisenhunt said he wasn’t sure when Hayes would return. Hayes wouldn’t stop earlier but said when he arrived he wasn’t sure of his timetable to return. LB O’Brien Schofield (knee) also is on PUP as he rehabs after surgery.
— Whisenhunt wasn’t specific about the weight of G Deuce Lutui. Asked how Lutui was doing, Whisenhunt said, “We’ll find out tomorrow,” as the Cardinals await their conditioning test.
It was relatively short and sweet. The rain coming down as players and coaches arrived today in Flagstaff prevented much talking with the media. But the team is in place and Whisenhunt reiterated his usual message to open camp — the team is happy to be at camp and ready to get to work.
