Arians would be bucking history

Back at the NFL owners meetings in March, Bruce Arians said "I want to have 30 touches out of" RB David Johnson. But don't count on it quite yet. Last year, Johnson averaged 23.3 touches per game. Nobody has even averaged 29 in the last 15 NFL seasons.

The Cardinals officially placed ILB Deone Bucannon on the active PUP list today as training camp is set to begin on Saturday. They also put OLB Jarvis Jones on the active non-football injury list with a quad injury.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians likes that David Johnson has been open about his goal of reaching 1,000 receiving yards to complement 1,000 rushing yards next season. But Arians admitted he needs to be "smart" with Johnson, who has attracted a lot of attention recently because of Arians' desire to get him 30 touches a game. "We just have to be smart using him because he is a great player and not overuse him. But we're not going to run him 30 times a game."

This year could be the last for the Cardinals with coach Bruce Arians, quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald together. "You never know," Arians said. But last could've been the end of the trio's run, just as easily and this year could, the coach added. "I know if I was going to retire because of my health, I should've did it last year. Hopefully I don't have anything worse than I had last year. I can't speak for Larry and Carson but I'm looking forward to the future."

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the team could've reported to training camp three days ago but he felt starting practice Saturday was "plenty." Arizona reported about a week earlier than they normally would've because they play in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio on Aug. 3.

When it comes to the depth chart at right guard, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians knows who his starter is – Evan Boehm – and that's it. "We'll see who the hell Nos. 2 and 3 are," Arians said. He said lineman John Wetzel has the capability of playing right guard but Arians wants to keep Wetzel at tackle "as much as possible." Fourth-round pick Dorian Johnson will get as many reps as the Cards can give him at right guard. Johnson was singled out as one player who Arians said he's looking forward to seeing with pads on. "He's going to look a whole lot better in pads than he did in shorts because he's one of those types of football players."

Part of the Cardinals' plan to keep Carson Palmer's throws down and his arm healthy and ready will be to continue giving him – as well as other veterans – days off during training camp. Arians cited Palmer, backup quarterback Drew Stanton, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and defensive tackle Frostee Rucker veterans who will get specific days off throughout the next month, sometimes the day before an off day to give the veterans back-to-back days off.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said he kept his kidney cancer, which was diagnosed before Week 15 in December, from his team so it wouldn't be a distraction. "We had some big games to finish the season and in no way did that have to be a distraction," Arians said. "All that is behind me."

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Bruce Arians reaffirmed his decision to have the Cardinals tackle more this training camp. But he said he'll be "very selective" about when and where he'll allow tackling. In prior training camps, the Cardinals have only tackled in goal-line scrimmages, so even tackling one more time will be a significant increase for Arizona. In addition to tackling more, Arians said the Cards will focus on the "art of tackling" which he said is "lost and we have to emphasize it. Even when we're not tackling, breaking down in good football position."

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said LB Deone Bucannon will start camp tomorrow on PUP. He also said LB Jarvis Jones tweaked his quad during today's conditioning test. Arians wasn't sure how severe Jones' injury is, adding Jones may miss a couple of days.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians takes the podium and starts his press conference by saying: "Yes, I'm healthy."
