Iupati reported to training camp weighing 327 pounds, the lightest of his career, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
You know it's training camp time when stories about players' weight start popping up in the press. Iupati reached the Pro Bowl in 2015, but struggled in 2016 when he reported to camp nearly 20 pounds heavier. The 29-year-old Iupati as well as head coach Bruce Arians feel the weight loss should improve the guard's stamina.
Iupati was able to log full practices on both Thursday and Friday, so it is no real surprise to see him suiting up for Sunday night's game despite his injured ankle. He should assume his regular position as the Cardinals' starting left guard.
With one uncapped session on his ledger, Iupati appears as if he'll miss just one game as a result of an ankle sprain. Expect him to hold down his typical spot as Arizona's starting left guard Sunday against the Seahawks.
Iupati is still dealing with a sprained ankle he sustained in Week 5's win over the 49ers and will be sidelined Monday as a result. John Wetzel figures to fill in for the veteran guard.
Iupati is considered questionable to return to Thursday's game against his former team, the 49ers, due to an apparent injury Kyle Odegard of AZCArdinals.com reports.
John Wentzel, who normally plays tackle, is filling in while Iupati is sidelined. The Cardinals are currently dealing with a thin line, as Evan Mathis is injured as well. The severity of Iupati's injury is currently unknown.
