    04/27/16DBJustin BethelFootPROBABLEBethel (foot) is penciled in as one of the Cardinals' starting cornerbacks in advance of training camp, the team's official site reports. "Obviously Justin is the current starter, but it's always going to be an open competition," general manager Steve Keim said Tuesday. "Knowing [coach] Bruce Arians and his staff, we'll play the best 11 out there, so whoever gives us a chance to succeed. But we have expectations for Justin."

    Keim commented in the wake of the Cardinals making one of their classic veteran signings -- cornerback Mike Jenkins inked a deal Tuesday -- at least under his reign over the past three and a half years. Jenkins provides experience to a group of CBs lacking in that department outside of Patrick Peterson (ankle), but the vote of confidence in Bethel certainly bodes well for his prospects. Although Bethel enters camp in the latter stages of his recovery from a fractured foot, he put together a decent sample size as a starting corner late last season, racking up 25 tackles, four passes defended, and one interception in four games (including playoffs).

    04/27/16DBTyrann MathieuKneeQUESTIONABLEMathieu's (knee) availability in Week 1 against the Patriots will be dependent upon his health, the Arizona Republic reports. "If I'm 90 percent, then I don't necessarily want to go out there," he said Sunday. "But if I'm 100 percent, I definitely want to be out there."

    Embedded within his second rehab effort from a torn ACL -- the other occurred near the end of his rookie year in 2013 -- Mathieu's reticence to take the field isn't a shock, especially after logging just 13 games in a generally subpar 2014 season. With an unimpeded offseason under his belt last fall, he was the centerpiece of the Cardinals' defense, accumulating 89 tackles (80 solo), five interceptions (one for a touchdown), one sack, and one forced fumble in 14 contests. The season-ending injury resulted in a less imposing unit that was ultimately embarrassed in the NFC championship by the Panthers, which his representatives are likely pointing during the ongoing conversation about a contract extension. No matter if the sides come to an agreement, Arizona could be without its starting slot corner, if he deems himself unready.

    04/27/16DBPatrick PetersonAnklePROBABLEPeterson (ankle) took part in individual drills during the Cardinals' mandatory minicamp last week, the team's official site reports.

    Peterson hasn't missed a game in his five-year career, but nagging ankle concerns seemingly forced the All-Pro cornerback under the knife as a preventive measure in mid-April. Handed a 6-to-8 week recovery timetable, his lack of participation in OTAs wasn't a surprise by any means. His return to drills during minicamp signals that his rehab is on schedule, though, with the aim of full health by the time training camp rolls around in late July.

    07/11/16WRKenny BellHamstringPROBABLEBell was impressive once again in Wednesday's mini-camp session, notching several touchdown grabs, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The former Cornhusker continues to make up for lost time after having sat all of his rookie campaign in 2015 with a hamstring injury. Bell has been impressive throughout the offseason, and turned heads again Wednesday with several touchdown grabs from backup quarterback Ryan Griffin. The 23-year-old has received extra reps this week due to veteran Vincent Jackson sitting for precautionary reasons, and he's used the opportunity to catch the eye of his head coach. "Kenny definitely had a good day today and a couple really nice throws there in the red zone from Griff (Griffin)," coach Dirk Koetter said. "If you were out here enough, every guy has his ups and downs, has his good days and bad days and Kenny certainly made a couple plays."

    04/27/16DBMajor WrightUndisclosedPROBABLEWright (undisclosed) will be placed on injured reserve this week, NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports.

    Wright opened the season as a starter, but his Week 1 injury gave Chris Conte a chance to shine. Hobbled by injuries for much of the year, Wright finished with just 25 tackles and three passes defensed in nine appearances. He is under contract for 2016, whereas Conte's deal expires at the end of the season. The Bucs might also opt to look outside of the organization for a starting safety to pair with Bradley McDougald.
