Making the Super Bowl this season isn’t totally on the minds of the Arizona Cardinals at present. They’re setting daily goals of improvement amid injury rehabilitation.

While the Super Bowl is the end goal Denard Span Seattle Mariners Jersey , of course, new Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks had a different kind of message for his players after they arrived at the team facility Tuesday for the first day of the offseason conditioning program.

“He always speaks about ‘Let’s not talk about the Super Bowl,’ and that’s one thing that I admire,” veteran linebacker Chandler Jones said of Wilks. “You can get sidetracked looking at the Super Bowl. You kind of have to look at the steps leading to there.”

The Cardinals have plenty of steps ahead of them. After an 8-8 season lowlighted by injuries, coach Bruce Arians retired, as did quarterback Carson Palmer. Wilks was hired and a new coaching staff, along with several new players http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-antonio-callaway-jersey , have begun preparations for this season.

One big task at the outset of workouts is getting to know new teammates and new coaches. It’s a work in progress, but Wilks’ message and theme of “win the day” seemed to strike a chord with veterans who remain from the Arians regime.

“Everybody is excited to build a strong foundation for what we’re trying to do here. Everything is focused on the details,” said offensive lineman D.J. Humphries, who battled knee injuries and was limited to five games last season. “Everybody’s trying to get to the Super Bowl, but you can’t get there looking into the stars that day. All the small things have to add up.”

Tuesday was for weight room work and running on the practice field as players get back into shape. Strength and conditioning coach Buddy Morris said while it was a good day he didn’t like everything he saw from the players.

“I saw some great things. I saw some things that make me want to go home and drink heavily,” Morris said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do, obviously … fatigue is always going to be a factor in everything.”

The Cardinals have a number of players on the mend looking for bounce-back seasons. Star running back David Johnson Nate Solder Color Rush Jersey , who severely injured his wrist in Week 1 and didn’t play again, appears to be back to full range of motion.

“He’s a freak,” Morris said. “I have to protect David from David, because he always wants to load the bar with more and more weight.”

New quarterback Sam Bradford participated in Tuesday’s workout and is coming back from a knee injury that cost him most of last season with Minnesota. Bradford has a history of knee surgeries.

“We’ll identify what Sam needs to do and put him on a program that’s based on him the individual,” Morris said.

NOTES: Humphries, who plays left tackle, said he’d be ready to start the season. … The Cardinals announced that the team’s four exclusive rights free agents – CB C.J. Goodwin Mike Hughes Color Rush Jersey , RB Elijhaa Penny, DL Olsen Pierre and OL John Wetzel – have all signed their one-year contracts for the 2018 season. Wetzel started 11 games and Pierre seven last season.



The mother of a G League player who died in March after collapsing on the court during a game has filed a federal lawsuit accusing the NBA and the Detroit Pistons of negligence.

Zeke Upshaw played for the Grand Rapids Drive, a G League affiliate of the Pistons. He collapsed during a game at Grand Rapids on March 24 and died two days later .

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The NBA and Pistons are named as defendants, along with SSJ Group and The DeltaPlex Arena. Jewel Upshaw, the player’s mother, is the plaintiff, both individually and on behalf of Zeke Upshaw’s estate.

The lawsuit alleges medical personnel at the game failed to attempt lifesaving measures in a timely fashion.

”Remarkably http://www.broncosauthorizedshops.com/authentic-isaac-yiadom-jersey , for much longer than four full minutes, no cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was initiated, no chest compressions were started, no oxygen mask was placed on his nose and mouth, no airway was cleared and secured, and no defibrillator sensors and electric delivery patches were attached and secured to Zeke’s chest,” the suit says.

The suit also says the defendants failed to provide the G League team ”the resources http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-avonte-maddox-jersey , policies, and procedures reasonably necessary” to prevent or handle Upshaw’s collapse.

”The NBA family continues to mourn the tragic passing of Zeke Upshaw,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said. ”We received a copy of the complaint and are reviewing it.”

Upshaw started his college basketball career at Illinois State. He graduated with a degree in apparel, merchandising and design. The Chicago native then transferred to Hofstra, where he played in 2013-14. Upshaw was undrafted and played internationally in Slovenia and Luxembourg. He spent most of the last two seasons with the Drive.
