08/29/16 - QB Matt Barkley, who is trying to make the roster as the third-stringer behind Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton, will likely play the entire game on Thursday when the Cardinals wrap up the preseason against the visiting Denver Broncos. So far, he's been only average. "The same ups and downs," coach Bruce Arians said. "He has some really bright spots and some really poor spots.

08/14/16 - QB Matt Barkley, trying to hold off undrafted rookie Jake Coker for the No .3 job behind Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton, struggled in his first game. He completed only eight of 24 passes for 121 yards and was intercepted once. Arians said Barkley didn't look any better on Sunday, when the Cardinals practiced outside next to University of Phoenix Stadium. He actually said the quarterback looked "worse." But Arians acknowledges there could be a very good reason. "He had a baby yesterday so I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt," the coach said.
