Arizona Cardinals assistant Freddie Kitchens cleared for training camp
According to ESPN.com’s Mike Sando, Arizona Cardinals QB coach Freddie Kitchens has been cleared by doctors for training camp.
Kitchens has been out since experience chest pains during a June 4 practice; an exam showed a defect in his aorta that required surgery.
“Freddie is doing great,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday. “Doctors have cleared him to come to work. It’s amazing. He hit a hurdle last week and cleared it. He really looks good, sounds good and he’s on a treadmill two or three times a day.”
The 38-year-old Kitchens started with the Cardinals in 2007 as the tight ends coach on Ken Whisenhunt’s staff, and was moved to quarterbacks coach by Bruce Arians.
