Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green remains coy about who will start at two of the five offensive line positions Sunday against San Francisco.
For part of the week, left guard Reggie Wells moved to right tackle, with rookie Deuce Lutui taking Wells' spot at guard.
On Thursday, however, Chris Liwienski played right tackle with Wells remaining at guard. Liwienski was cut by the Vikings last weekend and signed with the Cardinals on Monday.
He knows the Cardinals system, however. He played for Green in Minnesota and has also worked under offensive line coach Steve Loney, a Vikings assistant from 2002-2005.
"I know what it's going to be, I'm just not going to announce it yet," Green said of his starting lineup. "It's a head coach's privilege to keep a few secrets. We don't have very many in the game today."
Right tackle has been a trouble spot since Oliver Ross suffered a knee injury early in camp. He is expected back in a week or two.
