Defensive line

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Jonathan Ledbetter, 34; Manny Jones, 34; Christian Ringo, 32; Antwaun Woods, 27; Michael Dogbe, 13; Rashard Lawrence, 10

Dogbe and Lawrence got the starter treatment. Leki Fotu was injured. It is impossible to know who has the lead in the final spot on the roster.

Outside linebacker

Myjai Sanders, 26; Cameron Thomas, 25; Jesse Luketa, 21; Victor Dimukeje, 20; Dennis Gardeck, 11; Devon Kennard, 11

The Cardinals gave their young guys a lot of playing time. We will see once Markus Golden is back who will get the starting job between Kennard and Gardeck.

Inside linebacker

Joe Rondone-Arizona Republic

Ben Niemann, 41; Chandler Wooten, 29; Zeke Turner, 16; Zaven Collins, 16; Joe Walker, 12

Does Joe Walker’s playing time suggest that he is more likely to make the team over Niemann or Wooten?


Christian Matthew, 46; Josh Jackson, 41; Jace Whittaker, 21; Marco Wilson, 16; Antonio Hamilton, 11

Wilson and Hamilton are sure locks for the roster. They got an extended look at Jackson and Matthew.


Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

James Wiggins, 40; Tae Daley, 30; Deionte Thompson, 27; Charles Washington, 17

Washington got hurt, which limited his snap count.
