When Cardinals GM Steve Keim was asked about fourth-round pick Dorian Johnson's liver condition, he responded with a joke. "Some think coach (Bruce Arians) and I have some liver issues but we're doing just fine." After a moment, Keim admitted it was a "terrible joke. But no, he's fine. He's doing alright."

Later Arians added his own quip: "I'm still learning mine."
