The Arizona Cardinals are not concerned with getting new quarterback Sam Bradford on the field and up to speed. The oft-injured Bradford, who signed a one-year contract worth $ 20 million last month, appeared in only two games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2017.

Bradford was eligible to resume practicing after spending six weeks on injured reserve and the Vikings opted to bring him b...
