NFL Notes: Cardinals, Chiefs, Dolphins, Eagles



While Cardinals HC Bruce Arians mentioned earlier in the week that he doubts RB David Johnson will return this year (NFLTR), Johnson says neither he nor Arians knows for sure if he’ll be back.

“No, it’s not stunning [that Arians doubts his return],” Johnson said, via Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic. “That’s the way he’s thinking. He’s been in the league and been coaching for a while. Like him, he doesn’t know. We don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m still in this cast for a couple weeks, so who knows what’s going to happen?

Johnson added that he plans to remain optimistic about this season.

Yeah, I’m definitely still staying optimistic,” Johnson said. “That’s the thing, staying optimistic. I’m still trying to get on the field as soon as I can, but I’ve got to be 100 percent. I’ve got to make sure the wrist is 100 percent.”


On Wednesday, a report surfaced that the Chiefs were activating OLB Tamba Hali from the PUP list (NFLTR). However, Chiefs HC Andy Reid isn’t sure why Hali wasn’t at practice.

“I’m not sure exactly what’s going on, to be honest with you,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “When I walked out here, he was not practicing. [General Manager] Brett Veach is dealing with all that. I don’t know exactly the situation and what’s going on right now. That’s between Brett, Tamba and his representatives.”


Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh tells Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald that he isn’t really concerned about the recent report that Miami could be looking to move on from him (NFLTR) after this season.

“I didn’t really know about it until somebody made me aware of it,” Suh said. “I’m not really concerned about it. I came to play here for Mr. Ross and help this organization win games, and make this defense an elite defense. That’s my goal.

According to Suh, he plans to finish out his career in Miami.

I obviously signed a long-term deal here and I look forward to ending my career here,” Suh said.


Eagles veteran RB LeGarrette Blount said he had no reaction to the news that the team had traded for Jay Ajayi (NFLTR) before the deadline.

“There was no reaction. I can only control what I can control,” Blount said, via “That was a decision that was made from up top. … That is something I can’t answer. As far as I go, I’m just worried about me, what I can control and grind every day like I’ve been doing.
