Failed Physicals Lead to Waiver Wire

It hasn't changed since you were in high school. If you can't pass the physical, you can't play. Four Cardinals couldn't pass this week, and for two it meant their next stop was the waiver wire. For two others though, the Physically Unable to Perform list was their destination.

The Breakdown: Defensive Line

First things first: The Cardinals have two quality defensive ends.  Bertrand Berry has posted 20 ½ sacks in his two seasons with Arizona.  The 2005 season was cut short 7 games.  Chike Okaefor, the last high-profile free agent the Cardinals lured away from another team before Edgerrin James, is a solid defender at the point of attack and is always a threat to get to the quarterback.
