Arizona coach Bruce Arians ended his Wednesday news conference by saying Watford was rear-ended Tuesday en route to the practice facility for treatment on the team’s day off. Watford missed practice Wednesday, but was back Thursday working with the offensive line and on kickoff returns.
Watford was competing for playing time at left guard while Daryn Colledge was out with a lower back injury. But Colledge, who also missed Wednesday’s practice, returned to the field Thursday, as well.
Linebacker Matt Shaughnessy, who didn’t practice Wednesday, was back on the field with a brace over his left knee.
The only Cardinal to not practice during the open portion on Thursday was running back Rashard Mendenhall.
