Cardinals S Mathieu out for start of training camp
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu and nose tackle Alamdea Ta'amu will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list as they recover from last season's injuries.
Considered a risky pick after his legal troubles at LSU, Mathieu rehabilitated his image with a superb rookie season after the Cardinals drafted him in the third round. Mathieu's season ended in early December when he tore two knee ligaments while returning a free kick against St. Louis.
Ta'Amu tore his ACL in a season-ending loss to San Francisco. No timetable has been set for their return.
Arizona also released receiver Kelsey Pope on Wednesday.
