Cardinals rookie QB Rosen hoping to play in preseason finale
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Josh Rosen wants to play, but the rookie quarterback needs the go-ahead from his head coach before he can suit up and take snaps in the Arizona Cardinals’ preseason finale.
That isn’t likely to come until before kickoff Thursday, when Arizona hosts the Denver Broncos.
Rosen threw sharp passes in practice Tuesday, the thumb injury that kept him out of Sunday’s game against Dallas not appearing to bother him. Rosen slammed his thumb into a helmet during practice last week.
With starting quarterback Sam Bradford not likely to play much, if at all, Rosen might be in store for a couple of series against the Broncos if it’s determined he will play.
“I’m fine now, so nothing’s really an issue,” Rosen said.
