Nkemdiche (tendinitis) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chargers, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Nkemdiche is dealing with a mild case of tendinitis, but the defensive end's ability to play Saturday would suggest the injury isn't anything severe. The 2016 first-rounder should open the game with the first-team defense.
