Whisenhunt expects Cardinals to gain from practicing with Chiefs

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt says his team can benefit greatly from spending some time this week practicing with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fresh off their preseason opener against the New Orleans saints in Canton, Ohio, the Cardinals made the trek to Missouri Western State University to continue their training camp.

“It’s a great evaluation of your squad as well as seeing some of the players on their squad,” the coach said of what can be gained. “What you hope is that you can go back and look at the tape and say ‘OK we match up pretty good here’ or ‘we like this, we like what we’re doing here.’

“So it’s a great opportunity just to get out of the drudgery of camp as far as going against your guys every day.”

The coach said he’s not concerned that practice could get a little extra chippy because of who they are facing, but that “if it happens it happens.”

“That’s part of football,” he said.
