The Arizona Cardinals suit up Friday night for their second preseason contest of the year. They face the Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City plans on playing their starters for the first half.

The Cardinals have not revealed how much they plan on playing their starters. “You’ll have to tune in and check it out,” he told reporters Wednesday. He also indicated that the fact that the Chiefs are playing their starters for a half wouldn’t change what the Cardinals do.

As of Wednesday, he hadn’t even completely revealed his plan to his players.

“We haven’t really been told exactly how much we’re going to play this Friday,” running back Chase Edmonds said Wednesday.

Some starters are out with injuries. Chandler Jones is not expected to play and Markus Golden will be a gametime decision.

Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips and starting left guard Justin Pugh are on the COVID list. Guards Justin Murray and Brian Winters are out with injuries. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins probably will not play.

While the Chiefs’ starters might be out there a half, it seems unlikely the Cardinals will go that route. But to find out, we will have to just tune in.

The game will be on ESPN.
