Stewart Bradley already needed to prove a lot. The Arizona Cardinals linebacker now has a larger stage to show the strides he's made. Entering his second season with Arizona, Bradley needs to remove the stigma of underachiever after a disappointing first year after signing as a free agent. Bradley received first-team repetitions on the inside next to Daryl Washington each of the past two days during Arizona's brief training camp sojourn at Missouri Western State University. That came as a result of veteran Paris Lenon's ankle injury suffered Sunday in the Cardinals' preseason opener. Bradley didn't want to see anyone injured but must take advantage of his opportunity. He had a solid outing for Arizona in a 17-10 loss to New Orleans in the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday.

Beanie Wells activated from the PUP list

Getty Images According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, Cardinals running back Beanie Wells has been activated from the PUP list and took part in Tuesday’s walk through.

Cardinals, Chiefs take to field for joint practice

The joint practice came during Arizona's three-day stint in St. Joseph between a preseason-opening loss...

Drive to Victory: Hall of Fame Game

For a moment, forget New Orleans' tumultuous offseason and their questionable defense. Forget the lesser known "Skelton Mania" and Arizona's 7-2 too-little-too-late finish after opening 2011 a meager 1-6. Forget everything up until preseason action finally commenced this past Sunday night...or could we? After forcing and recovering a fumble on the previous drive...
