TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Kevin Minter didn't have the immediate success he expected when the Arizona Cardinals drafted him in the second round out of LSU in 2013. He's having it now. Minter, as middle linebacker, calls the defensive sets for the front seven of a Cardinals team that was 10-2 and had won six in a row heading into a game Thursday night against Minnesota. For two seasons...

The Arizona Cardinals are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to preparing to play the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday evening. This includes a plan for covering 6-foot-7, 260-pound tight end Jimmy Graham, who everyone, including Kevin Minter, knows is almost impossible to stop in the open field. “There really isn’t much you can do with that, unless you put a D-end out there...

But the health of left guard Jonathan Cooper and inside linebacker Kevin Minter warrants some worry. Neither player practiced on Friday. While coach Bruce Arians said both would be game-time decisions on Sunday...
This coming season the Arizona Cardinals will be putting some pretty big expectations on a few guys who have yet to perform at the NFL level. Each year teams come to expect at least one or two fresh draftees to make an immediate impact on the field. Sometimes the opposite happens and those plans don’t exactly workout.

Kevin Minter will be given every possible chance to replace Karlos Dansby as one of the Cardinals' two starting inside linebackers. But that doesn't mean he has already been anointed. "I'm not ready to say he's the guy yet," defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said. "He's got to prove it in pads." What if Minter isn't ready to step out from Danby's lengthy shadow? And what if the Cardinals...
