A man says Arizona Cardinals defensive end Ronald Talley seriously injured him by smashing a champagne bottle over his head at a suburban Detroit bar. A lawsuit filed Wednesday in Oakland County Circuit Court names Talley, five unknown bouncers and the now-closed South Bar. The lawsuit says Robert Ford was attacked for no reason at the Birmingham bar on March 26. Attorney Jonathan Marko says bouncers dragged the 30-year-old Ford to an alley and left him there until he was rescued by authorities and taken to a hospital. Marko says Ford needed 13 staples to close his head wound. He says a doctor had to ''fish to get glass out of his head.'' Talley, a Detroit native, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Hot seat? Whisenhunt knows it's all about wins

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Does Ken Whisenhunt deserve to be on the hot seat? In a logical, rational world, no. Whisenhunt has already taken the Cardinals to the playoffs twice and the Super Bowl once. In the Cardinals 19 previous seasons in Arizona, they had made the playoffs just once. The sixth-year coach has a 4-2 postseason record, has had just one losing season in his previous five...

Some good, some bad in Red White practice

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt urged caution two days before the clubs annual Red and White practice Saturday at Northern Arizona University. With a mere three days of practices under their belts -- and even less in full pads -- the Cards were likely to look rusty. Whisenhunt was partially right. Aside from goal-line situations, the offense managed just one...

Arizona's Peterson still honing his CB skills

It sounds strange to say Patrick Peterson could have a breakthrough season this year. After all, the spectacular Arizona Cardinals cornerback returned four punts for touchdowns, one a 99-yard game winner, and made the Pro Bowl as a rookie kick returner last season. But he knows that his biggest value to the Cardinals will be as a shutdown cornerback, and he learned a year ago that...

Cardinals’ Beanie Wells will miss the start of Training Camp

With the Cardinals opening camp, the team has placed running back Beanie Wells on the active/PUP list. Unlike the reserve/PUP list, which is for the regular season, Wells can be activated at any time and will not have to miss 6 games. However, he will not practice and it’s a very bad sign for someone who had what was described as “minor” knee surgery way back in January. Wells...

Record crowd watches Arizona defense dominate

Defense is supposed to be the strength of the Arizona Cardinals, and it sure looked that way as the team wrapped up its first week of training camp with the annual Red and White practice. A record crowd estimated at 14,500 watched the controlled scrimmage, where John Skelton and Kevin Kolb split time with the first team. Kolb had the only touchdown pass of the Saturday session...

Open competition at Cards cornerback

The quarterback competition is getting all the attention at the Arizona Cardinals training camp. The battle at cornerback is equally intense. Patrick Peterson has one cornerback spot nailed down. The other is the only position up for grabs on a defense that is considered the strength of the team. Among the candidates are Greg Toler, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL...
