The Cardinals are going to give rookie Nate Potter a shot at left tackle, and coach Ken Whisenhunt says more changes might be coming as Arizona looks to end a five-game losing streak.
A seventh-round draft pick out of Boise State, Potter entered Sunday's game at Green Bay in the second quarter, replacing D'Anthony Batiste. Whisenhunt says he was ''very impressed'' with Potter's performance.
Now Whisenhunt says he and his staff will take the upcoming bye week to see what other changes might be warranted.
Unless the Cardinals make another move on the offensive line, Arizona would have rookies starting at both tackle spots when it resumes play at Atlanta on Nov. 18. Fourth-round draft pick Bobby Massie has been the starter at right tackle.

Cardinals HC Ken Whisenhunt told reporters on Monday that he expects to have QB Kevin Kolb back “sooner rather than later,” but wouldn’t offer a specific timetable for his return, per Darren Urban.
Kolb has been out for a few weeks now with a number of injuries. Since John Skelton has taken over, Arizona has dropped four straight games with Skelton producing 2 passing touchdowns...
The Arizona Cardinals have lost starting outside linebacker O'Brien Schofield for the season with an injured left ankle.
Schofield was injured in Sunday's 31-17 loss at Green Bay. Initially, it was thought it probably was only a sprain but further examination uncovered ligament damage that requires surgery.
Quintin Groves replaced Schofield in the game and is expected to...
The Arizona Cardinals have hit a rough patch of the season and are now looking like a team that may struggle to remain .500 after a great start to the year. Unfortunately, Larry Fitzgerald is one of those guys who could have done so much more if he had a quarterback. Imagine if Rodgers was throwing to Fitz. It’d be insane – anyway, Fitz kept busy during his off week and fed this...
Cardinals LT D’Anthony Batiste was benched in favor of Nate Potter during Sunday’s Week 9 loss to the Packers. Finally. Batiste has been the worst left tackle in the league this season and is a big reason why the Cardinals’ offensive line reached historically bad proportions. Potter is a seventh-round rookie, but he can’t do much worse. Expect him to start in Week 11 when...
Cardinals RB Beanie Wells told reporters that there’s “no doubt” he will be back in time for the team’s Week 12 matchup against the St Louis Rams, via AzCardinals.com.
Wells was placed on IR with the designation to return and could return to practice as soon as Wednesday. Arizona has their bye this weekend and considering that Wells will not be available for Week 11, La’Rod...
Arizona Cardinals rookie wideout Michael Floyd will see his playing time increase, according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.Fantasy Spin:At this point we can't see Floyd getting enough opportunities to have any fantasy value this season. He's still sitting behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet. And of course his quarterback is either John Skelton or Kevin Kolb.
It's going to be one long bye week for the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals cut a 17-point deficit to a touchdown late in the third quarter, only to give up a 72-yard score less than a minute later that sealed their fifth straight loss.
Arizona (4-5) would pick up just one first down the rest of the game, a 31-17 Green Bay victory, and will spend the next week wondering how...
ON THIS SATURDAY, it seemed that the real show started after the game ended. Mike Leach’s postgame remarks were explosive, accusatory and, in their own right, just as big of a disaster as his team’s 49-6 loss at Utah. The Utes outgained the Cougars 453 to 255 in total yards as the hapless crew from the Palouse gave up six sacks and tallied negative-4 rushing yards.
OVER THE PAST several weeks, Washington State coach Mike Leach has publicly criticized his football players. The Cougars are 2-7 and deserve criticism, but coaches typically yell at their players at practice or rip them in private. They don’t berate them in front of the media.
This win for the Packers is more proof that their slow start to the season is nothing to worry about and they are back in the running for the Super Bowl. On the other side, this loss for the Cardinals also proved something about their fast start to the season, it was a fluke. After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals have since lost five straight games and are no longer in...
