Mathieu says he's at "60, 70 percent" running according to a video he's featured in on the team's official website. He's lifting weights as normal and has begun to do some cutting in his rehab but still seems like a longshot to participate in team drills come training camp.
"I had Oct. 1, or after the (bye week) as the target date for me personally," Arians said. "If (he does) something better than that, God bless 'em."
"I just did lateral movements, ran my first 50 yards, and backpedal for the first time on field. I must say I feel damn good," Mathieu tweeted. Still, the Cardinals aren't optimistic Mathieu will be ready for the start of training camp.
"I think Ty is going to up to the wire," coach Bruce Arians told the paper. "I still anticipate him on PUP, but he refuses to believe it. That's a good thing."
Mathieu tore two knee ligaments last December against the Rams.
