TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians addressed the media before Monday's practice. Here is a recap of what Arians discussed:
Arians said if safety Tyrann Mathieu doesn't play Thursday night he won't play in Week 1 on "Monday Night Football." But he did not say whether Mathieu would play against the Chargers this week.
The Cardinals' starters won't play Thursday at San Diego, Arians said.
Rookie Logan Thomas will start and play the entire game.
After looking at the film, Arians thought the Cards' pass rush was "decent." Following Sunday night's game, Arians said he was concerned with the pass rush.
Veteran tackle Max Starks was cut by the Cardinals on Monday but bringing him back in September is a possibility if he goes unclaimed.
There are at least five jobs available to be won Thursday night in San Diego. "It's highly competitive and it's a big night for a lot of them."
