Rams CB Trumaine Johnson, on Aaron Donald still holding out: "We'd love to have him here, but at the same time, I know what he's going through. I've been through it. It's a business at the end of the day. He's a very valuable player. Hopefully he gets what he's asking for."

OLB Robert Quinn and CB Kayvon Webster still have a chance of playing in Saturday's preseason game, but ILB Mark Barron will not and will thus begin the season without playing in a game. Webster's ankle was bothering him, so he didn't practice. Quinn was going to practice, but got a charley horse from Michael Brockers during a walk-through and stayed away. Tavon Austin (hamstring) did some agility drills on his own.

Rams coach Sean McVay says he has "a lot of respect" for Mike Martz. "You look at the production of offenses that he's been a part of. ... I don't know Coach Martz; I met him real quick at the combine a handful of years ago. But I have a lot of respect for what he's accomplished and can't say anything but good things about what he's done and what kind of coach he is."

Dom Capers thinks that if all the cornerbacks are healthy, the combination of players could change week to week. "That's why you need depth," the Packers defensive coordinator said. "You can't ever have enough defensive backs."

Part of his response: "The bottom line is this: I've never been a head coach before; I haven't won a game. I haven't done anything. So it's going to be a great challenge."

While coach Bruce Arians thinks safety Tyrann Mathieu will have a chance to lead the league in interceptions this season as long as he stays healthy, Arians doesn't know how cornerback Patrick Peterson will get more interceptions since quarterbacks like to throw away from him. "He won't" get more chances, Arians said. "He won't. When they do throw that one bad ball your way, catch it."

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians would like to plan more joint practices but said planning them is difficult because both teams have to wait until the preseason schedule comes out in April. Arians has had discussions with Oakland coach Jack Del Rio about a joint practice and both coaches would like to do it but "we just haven't hooked up," Arians said. If the Cardinals had done a joint practice this year, it would've been this week in Atlanta, Arians said, but he chose not to since Arizona will be playing five preseason games this year. "It was just going to be too much," he said.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians doesn't have any animosity toward young coaches who get hired as head coaches in the NFL, although he was passed up for dozens of head jobs throughout his career in the 20 years as an NFL assistant before he was hired by the Cardinals in 2013. "Good for them," Arians said. "You're happy for anybody to get one. There are a lot of very established coaches that don't get a chance versus some young guys but sometimes you got the right connections."
