Cardinals' Phillip Sims to get corrective lenses
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cardinals rookie quarterback Phillip Sims didn't impress the team in OTAs, but he's still in the running for the team's third-string job. 

It turned out he had a reason for the struggles. Tests showed that he had 20/50 vision in one eye and 20/100 vision in the other. 

“The doctor actually said, ‘It’s amazing that you’re here, with your eyesight that bad and playing quarterback on top of it,’ ” Sims said, per AZCardinals.com.

Sims is being fitted with corrective lenses which will help ... they think. 

“The doctor was like, ‘Two things can happen: You can do the corrective lenses and it can make you that much better, or it can freak you out because you’re not used to seeing so much stuff,’ ” Sims said. “They want to test me out to see how I respond to it.”

Cardinals LB Daryl Washington had probation reduced
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Cardinals have yet to decide if they will reinstate Daryl Washington, but the recovery of the troubled linebacker was encouraging enough for the court to reduce his probation two months, per ESPN.

Washington pled guilty to aggravated assault in March 2014. He served 10 months probation rather than the one year originally mandated. He was also suspended last May for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello has declared that the domestic violence charge would be reviewed under the personal conduct policy separately and following a decision on his reinstatement from his current suspension.

Cardinals RB David Johnson getting a chance to impress
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cardinals rookie running back David Johnson got a chance to impress his coaches and teammates in Tuesday's minicamp. With injuries all around the Cardinals' backfield, Johnson was able to take center stage.

"I think he brings a little bit of a change of pace," quarterback Carson Palmer said of Johnson, per ESPN.com. "I don't think there's a big drop off in the pass game stuff because he catches the ball so well and has a natural route-running style and gait about it."

The third-round pick showed some versatility on Tuesday. He took a pass from Palmer, and, later in practice, went out as a wide out in the backfield. 

Johnson is contending with Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor for playting time. But with Williams and Taylor sidelined with injuries, Johnson is getting a chance to show what he can do.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

A minor hamstring injury kept Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd from participating in the first day of minicamp on Tuesday. Coach Bruce Arians kept Floyd out of action as a precaution, according to ESPN.com.

"I'm not going to risk it," Arians said. "He had too great of OTAs to risk it today."
