Mathieu tore his ACL and LCL during a game in December and has been rehabbing since. He was placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of training camp.
The safety was asked about Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians' reaction to that timetable:
“I shared it with him,” Mathieu said. “I don’t think he takes me too seriously.”
Mathieu played in 13 games before the injury as a rookie for Arizona last season. He made 68 tackles and grabbed two interceptions. -- Molly Geary
