As the Arizona Cardinals head into their final preseason game, they do so with a few position battles still yet unresolved. We are looking at what is left to be determined, including the tackle spots.
Camp began with the offensive line being mostly set, with the Cardinals only needing to fill the right tackle spot. However Levi Brown tore the triceps in his right arm during the preseason, leaving the team scrambling to fill both tackle positions.
The veteran Bridges began training camp as the starting right tackle, and it’s possible Brown’s injury may slide him to the other side.
Bridges has not received as much playing time in preseason because, as head coach Ken Whisenhunt has said, the team knows what he can do, and as it is that may be better than the other options.
A fourth-round pick out of Ole Miss, it was hoped Massie would eventually take over the right tackle position when he was ready, not out of necessity.
However, the 23-year-old may be pressed into duty due to injuries along the line, and he’s getting a test run as a starter in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Broncos.
