Focused David Johnson hopes for extension soon

Cardinals running back David Johnson skipped a June minicamp, but he is in training camp and is not dwelling on his contract situation.

The Arizona Cardinals moved to bolster depth at middle linebacker on Monday, signing five-year NFL veteran Gerald Hodges. Hodges joins a linebacker corps depleted with injuries, including starters Deone Bucannon and middle linebacker Josh Bynes. The Cardinals waived Jeremy Cash, who had been Bucannon's backup and who was playing well in Saturday night's preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers until suffering a knee injury in the third quarter. Cash left the game on a cart, and his injury appears serious enough for the Cardinals to get Hodges.

The Cardinals' first possession, with the No. 1 offense, could hardly have gone any better. After rookie Christian Kirk returned a punt 38 yards, running back David Johnson -- in his first game action since a dislocated wrist ended his 2017 season -- broke off back-to-back 14-yard runs. With the run working well, quarterback Sam Bradford, coming off a knee injury that limited him to two games last season, threw just two passes and completed one (the first was canceled out by a penalty). Rookie Chase Edmonds did the the rest, scoring the game's first touchdown with a gritty effort on fourth-and-goal. Coach Steve Wilks has emphasized the run game as a big part of the Cardinals' offensive identity. He had to be pleased with what his first unit did in limited action.

Rookie Josh Rosen got a loud cheer from Cardinals fans when he took the field for the first time as an NFL quarterback with 1:52 to play in the first quarter. The much-hyped Rosen debut wasn't spectacular, though Rosen did make a couple of nice throws. After his first completion, 6 yards to fellow rookie Christian Kirk, Rosen's first series was a three-and-out. Rosen escaped a sack on a couple of occasions and was almost intercepted. Two receivers dropped passes, Rosen didn't get much protection from the second-string offensive line and had to field a pair of low snaps from his center. His night was finished at halftime, he finished 6 of 13 for 41 yards during four possessions.

Cardinals defensive tackle Olson Pierre has a fumble recovery and a sack in less than a quarter of play. He's No. 2 on the depth chart behind former first round pick Robert Nkemdiche, and with this showing, could start to press Nkemdiche -- who has not played to expectations since being drafted in 2016 -- for the starting job.

Cardinals rookie running back Chase Edmonds has turned heads in training camp with his burst of speed and standout pass protection. The 2018 fourth-round pick from Fordham might have impressed the coaching staff even more, however, with his 2-yard touchdown run on the opening drive. On fourth-and-goal, the Cardinals went for it, and Edmonds looked stopped short of the goal line. But he kept his legs churning and reached forward with the ball for a touchdown.
