FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Cardinals fans received a mild surprise when training camp began at Northern Arizona University on Tuesday. Running back Beanie Wells (knee) joined tight end Jeff King (quadriceps) on the active physically unable to perform (PUP) list after failing the team physical. Like King, Wells designation will prevent him from practicing until that designation is lifted, but coach Ken Whisenhunt told reporters it was expected with Wells.
We were going to be conservative in our approach with him anyway, Whisenhunt said.
Wells can come off the list at any point during camp but had to be placed on active PUP before camp began, per league rules. He still counts against the training camp roster.
Wells refused to put a timeline on his return when he spoke to reporters on Wednesday.
It just takes time, said Wells, who had surgery in the offseason which he characterizes continues to characterize as arthroscopic despite the extended recovery time. I dont want to go out there and put wear and tear on it in camp.
I dont think anybody wants to see a 75 percent Beanie Wells. Everybody wants to see a 100 percent Beanie Wells. Theres no question Ill be ready for the season opener.

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...

Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt stated the quarterback competition would “start out as even as it possibly can.” Whisenhunt proved to be a man of his word as Kevin Kolb and John Skelton are both getting equal chances at OTA’s. Skelton took the snaps with the first team at Tuesday’s OTA and Kolb led [...]
Running back Beanie Wells and tight end Jeff King, both starters, were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. They will not practice until they are moved from the list, which can happen at any time. Wells is recovering from knee surgery, and King suffered a partially torn quadriceps tendon in off-season workouts. Both players failed their physicals, Whisenhunt said, but...

2011 RECORD – 8-8: My favorite bizarro fact about the 2011 Arizona Cardinals? Despite being saddled with the anti-awesome twosome (Kevin Kolb and John Skelton) at quarterback, 13 of Arizona’s 16 games were decided by seven points or less. The Cardinals...
NFL Network analyst and Former NFL linebacker Willie McGinest was on NFL Total Access and said that friends of his that are on the Arizona Cardinals have told him they prefer John Skleton over Kevin Kolb.
“Talking to some of my buddies down there, it seems like they’re gravitating toward Skelton a little bit more,” McGinest said.
Skelton certainly looked more...

ESPNs Adam Schefter writes that the Arizona Cardinals still have no idea if Kevin Kolb or John Skelton will end up being their starting quarterback this season. Schefter seems to think that Kolb has the better chance, which really isnt all that surprising when you consider how much the Cardinals are paying him this year. The fact that Kolb seems to be unable to separate himself...
NO CLICHES OR boilerplate statements here. The Pac-12's Media Day is generally marked with tired phrases and the same safe answers from the parade of Pac-12 coaches. But Washington State's Mike Leach just doesn't operate that way. Asked which head coach in the Pac-12 would make for the best hunting/fishing partner, Leach relished the opportunity to answer.
According to XTRA 910 Cardinals insider, Mike Jurecki, Adrian Wilson is set to remain a member of the Arizona Cardinals for the rest of his career. Today, he signed a new four year contract with the team, replacing the existing two years that he had left on his previous pact. Source: SBNation Attached Thumbnails

LOS ANGELES -- All eyes are on Pullman this season as Cougar fans hope new head coach Mike Leach can turn the program around. He discusses some of the biggest changes to the program, a few emerging players to keep an eye out for and more in this 1-on-1 video interview.
IF THIS WERE THE Las Vegas Strip, Mike Leach would have just signed a 10-year contract extension. If it were Yankee Stadium, he'd still be doffing his cap. If he played for the Detroit Red Wings, the ice would be a foot deep in octopi. Yep, the reviews are fully in and Mike Leach's debut performance at Pac-12 Media Day was a smash hit. Here's what some folks are saying ...
