Rams, recent history stand between Cardinals and playoffs

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Lyle Sendlein doesn't remember much from the Cardinals' 17-3 loss in St. Louis two seasons ago on Thursday night football.  "I probably deleted it from my memory," the Cardinals center said. "I'm sure there were a lot of sacks." Nine, to be exact. Quarterback Kevin Kolb got beat up so badly that his helmet was knocked off twice and he took a straight shot to jaw...

Win over Seahawks last season set table for Arizona's 2014 run

TEMPE, Ariz. -- In the big picture, the Cardinals' 17-10 win over the Seahawks on Dec. 22 in Seattle didn't mean much to the Seahawks. Seattle won the Super Bowl. Arizona didn't make the playoffs.  Through that lens, Sunday's rematch -- the first time these teams have seen each other since Arizona ended Seattle's 14-game home winning streak -- shouldn't have any residual effects...

Room for improvement after Cardinals' season-opening win

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Lyle Sendlein drew on eight seasons of NFL wisdom when summing up the Cardinals' disjointed, 18-17 win over the San Diego Chargers in each team's season opener Monday night at University of Phoenix Stadium. "It's not like you draw it up, but it wouldn't be an NFL game without a little adversity," Sendlein said. "Around here, big, prime-time games haven't gone our...

Sendlein returns to anchor Cardinals offensive line

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Cardinals center Lyle Sendlein was back in full pads at practice on Monday for the first time since suffering a calf injury on Day 3 of training camp (July 28).  Ted Larsen is playing left guard for Jonathan Cooper, who is still out with a toe injury, but the Cardinals have four of their five projected offensive-line starters in place now to forge that all important...

Ted Larsen a possible starter

Ted Larsen squares up against Paris Lenon in 2011. Mandatory Credit: Lyle Sendlein went down with a calf injury that has sidelined him the last few weeks.

Arians critical, Cardinals begin last week of camp

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Mental errors, particularly by Arizona's first-team defensive front, irritated coach Bruce Arians in the aftermath of the team's 30-28 preseason loss at Minnesota. The first-team offense escaped criticism, and Arians had special praise for Ted Larsen, who was filling in for injured starting center Lyle Sendlein. When Sendlein returns, probably for Wednesday...

Cardinals center Sendlein (calf) out at least three weeks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Cardinals expect to be without starting center Lyle Sendlein for at least three weeks after the veteran suffered a left calf injury Monday. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians on Tuesday said Sendlein should be able to return for the team's third or fourth preseason game. That the injury was relatively minor and came so early in camp provided a silver lining. "He...

Camp his next gear as Cardinals put on pads

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Odd as it may sound, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians could breathe Monday knowing his players finally would be hitting each other. "We were very fortunate yesterday because we were way too active to be in shorts," Arians said. "I was holding my breath a little bit. But it was an outstanding practice."

Cardinals O -Line Better?

Adam Green/Arizona Sports Rhett Savage Arizona Cardinals Writer As an avid Cardinals fan this time of year always gets me wondering who and how many new faces are there going to be. We all know that for the past several years the Cardinals have had a porous Offensive Line and continue to give up way to many sacks.
