GLENDALE Pharoh Cooper Jersey 2019 , Ariz. (AP) — Two first-year head coaches will be on the sidelines when the Detroit Lions meet the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, and both have had a rough season."Yeah, your first year you're going to have struggles," Detroit defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said. "If you don't, you lucked up."Most of the luck for these teams has been bad. Matt Patricia's Lions (4-8) have lost five out of six. Steve Wilks' Cardinals (3-9), though, are coming off the best performance of what's been a miserable season, a surprising 20-17 victory over the Packers in Green Bay.But the Cardinals have been decimated by injuries. When left tackle D.J. Humphries and wide receiver Christian Kirk went down this week, that left 14 Arizona players on injured reserve, six of them offensive linemen."We've got guys who weren't on the team a week ago that are out there starting and playing," said receiver Larry Fitzgerald, in his 15th season with the Cardinals. "We're not making excuses. We're paid to do a job. Whoever is lined up, doesn't matter where they're from, what their number is, whoever those 11 are on the field Andy Isabella Arizona Cardinals Jersey , we're going to do our best."The Lions, who also don't have a lot to play for as far as the standings go, echoed that theme."It's all about confidence," defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison said. "If a guy can gain some confidence from some wins, it's hard to gain confidence when you're losing. Just stay in it and be able to go into the offseason on a good note."Detroit is 0-3 against the NFC West this season and has lost eight in a row at Arizona. Here are some things to consider when the Cardinals host the Lions:WHO ARE THOSE GUYSOnly one player from the offensive line remains for Arizona, rookie center Mason Cole. And he became a starter only because A.Q. Shipley blew out his knee in preseason.Cole is one of three rookies who will start on the O-line for the Cardinals. The others are seventh-round draft pick Korey Cunningham at left tackle, and left guard Colby Gossett, an undrafted free agent who made his NFL debut against the Packers. Oday Aboushi, signed on Oct. 23, is the right guard. Will Holden, who was with the Cardinals a year ago but released in training camp, re-signed last week and will start at right tackle."We can't worry about what we don't have this time of the year," Wilks said. "We've just got to go out and execute."NO KERRYONDetroit's rookie running back Kerryon Johnson showed what he is capable of before he hurt his knee last month in a win over Carolina. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry, totaling 641 yards with three scores and caught 32 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown. Johnson didn't practice all week, though Andy Isabella Jersey 2019 , and was ruled out for the game on Friday.It's his third straight missed game.JOHNSON & EDMONDSDavid Johnson, like most of the Arizona offense, isn't having a great year, but his understudy, rookie Chase Edmonds, had something of a breakout game against the Packers.Edmonds, a fourth-round pick out of Fordham, gained 53 yards on just five carries, including touchdown runs of 6 and 8 yards. Johnson was productive, too, with 69 yards, but needed 20 carries. Overall, the Cardinals rushed for a season-best 182 yards.Patricia expects to see both backs in the game at times."They have a lot of good players, a lot of skill players that can step in, and they've shown other packages like when the two backs are out there Stitched Jermaine Gresham Jersey ," he said.STAFFORD'S STRUGGLESTurnovers late in the game plagued Matthew Stafford in Detroit's last two losses, to Chicago and the Los Angeles Rams, both at home. He threw two interceptions against the Bears and fumbled away the ball against the Rams.But his struggles aren't solely his fault as his receiving corps has been hit hard by injuries.Stafford has a fierce defender in Patricia."Let's not lose the fact that I don't think anyone's out there trying not to win," Patricia said. "I think everybody's out there really trying to work really hard to go help this team win, and he's certainly at the top of that category."ONE MOREFitzgerald needs one catch to pass Jerry Rice for most receptions for one team in NFL history.He only had three catches last week, but one was a sliding grab of a 32-yard pass from Josh Rosen on a third-and-23 play. Arizona went on to kick the winning field goal. The Arizona Cardinals, with running back David Johnson still a no-show, wrapped up their first minicamp under new coach Steve Wilks on Thursday with another workout in the scorching heat.With the high approaching 110 degrees a couple of hours later, the Cardinals practiced in the late morning hours with Wilks disdaining using the nearby practice bubble."It was hot today," Wilks said. "But it's part of us building that mental toughness. There are going to be certain times down in Glendale (for training camp) that we're going to get outside as well."Johnson, entering his fourth NFL season, participated in all the voluntary workouts except the last one, when he stood on the sideline watching. He didn't show up for any of the three mandatory minicamps, which will result in fines, as his agent tries to get a better contract.The dynamic running back led the NFL in yards from scrimmage two years ago Youth Jermaine Gresham Jersey , becoming the first player in league history to top 100 yards from scrimmage in his first 15 games. But he dislocated his wrist in last year's opener and didn't play again.He's scheduled to make $1.9 million this season, far less than what the other top running backs in the league earn but his situation is complicated by missing virtually all of his most recent season."Everyone has their personal reasons," cornerback Patrick Peterson said. "I just hope David and his team figure it out and hopefully we'll have him here by camp."The Cardinals report to training camp July 27 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, their regular-season home. The players stay in a nearby hotel.The team will gather with three new quarterbacks — Sam Bradford, Mike Glennon and rookie Josh Rosen.Bradford, signed as a free agent to be the starter, was limited in voluntary workouts as he works his way back from a knee injury. But he was used more in the minicamp."Sam did a little bit more today," Wilks said. "I'm very pleased in his performance. He's doing some great things out there. Again, just identifying the defense, getting the offense in the right position, taking control, which I like. He made some great throws, good accuracy."Glennon was signed as the backup but will be pushed by Rosen. Rosen, the first-round draft pick who has been praised for his ability to quickly pick up the offense and make the right decisions as he got more reps because of Bradford's situation.Wilks has not talked about Johnson, saying his emphasis is on the players who were at minicamp. But the ground game appears to be the central component of the offense being installed by new coordinator Mike McCoy.Wilks praised the work of the revamped offensive line Stitched J. J. Nelson Jersey , even though it's hard to reach too big a conclusion with the team not yet in pads."The point of emphasis from day one is we want to run the ball," Wilks said.The players go their separate ways for the next six weeks. Peterson said he's headed to Monaco to celebrate his sixth wedding anniversary, then he will meet up with Larry Fitzgerald to play golf at St. Andrews in Scotland.Inside linebacker Deone Bucannon, who will call the defensive signals, said he's going to Southern California to work out there.The players are allowed to keep their iPads to study the playbook while they're gone.Wilks, the defensive coordinator at Carolina last season, noted that three of his leading players ranked high in the new top 100 players list compiled by the NFL Network. Peterson comes in at No. 23, Fitzgerald No. 27 and defensive end Chandler Jones No. 28."That's very impressive," Wilks said. "And you have other guys that are emerging like Bucannon, (Haason) Reddick, Budda Baker, those guys. And you still have a quality quarterback in my opinion in Sam Bradford."So we have great personnel. We have good core guys and we have a great supporting cast. So I'm excited about our roster."Whenever Johnson returns, expect the coach to start talking him up again, too.Notes: The Cardinals re-signed veteran punter Andy Lee to a deal that keeps him under contract through the 2020 season. The 35-year-old Lee has appeared in 217 games over his NFL career.
