Defensive line

Fotu and Ledbetter got the starters treatment. Everyone else was pretty even.

Outside linebackers

The Cardinals were down Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders. Gardeck got hurt.

Inside linebackers

Woods played the most and played well. He started with White. Does that mean he will be the starter in Week 1? We will see.


Clark started with Wilson and stayed in the game for more reps. Hamilton played some in the slot after Jalen Thompson came out of the game.


Simmons got extended playing time and struggled.
