Following his introductory press conference last week, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was asked about the team's running game. I know that Ryan (Williams) can flat run the football, Arians said. Im a Hokie. I know all about Ryan and I love him. Arians attended and played college football at Virginia Tech.
