NFC Notes: Cardinals, Giants, Packers, Rams
- Cardinals OLB Markus Golden, who is on the injured reserve due to a torn ACL, announced on Twitter that he successfully underwent knee surgery.
- According to Darren Urban, the Cardinals have “not ruled out” fifth-round rookie RB T.J. Logan (wrist) being activated from the injured reserve.
- Urban added that the team will “see where he’s at” next week after Logan fields punts with a brace on.
- Ian Rapoport mentions that if the Cardinals designate Logan as their player to return, it would rule out either Carson Palmer or David Johnson from being activated since that teams can only activate two players off the injured reserve.
- Benjamin Allbright reports that a source within the Giants would be “shocked beyond belief” if HC Ben McAdoo was retained as head coach for next season.
- Allbright’s source said McAdoo has lost trust and some players “hate” him: “[Players] hate him, no one trusts him…he’s only out for himself.”
- On Thursday, Packers HC Mike McCarthy told reporters that TE Martellus Bennett was “going through [an] injury situation” when they elected to release him yesterday: “Going through injury situation. I enjoyed coaching Marty. But all questions and thoughts on how and the designation I don’t have those answers for you.” (Tom Silverstein)
- As for why the Packers used a “failure to disclose injury” designation, McCarthy said he didn’t have any information about this. (Tom Silverstein)
- As for their plan moving forward, McCarthy says he plans to “be smart” with how he uses Lance Kendricks and Richard Rodgers moving forward: “We had three veteran tight ends on the roster, now we’re down to two, so you adjust the way you do things, the way you game plan and the way you move forward. But that’s another challenge in an NFL season. Every team goes through it. Every coach has to adjust, and we’re doing the same.“
