The Cardinals got a strong season from Chandler Jones in 2017, but their pass rush had to go without Markus Golden for most of the season after a torn ACL.

Golden is progressing in his effort to return to the lineup. Josh Weinfuss of reports that Golden posted a video on his protected Instagram page on Tuesday that showed him running as the team got started on their offseason program.

Golden didn’t have any sacks in four appearances before being injured last year, but had 12.5 while playing across from Jones during the 2016 season.

A return to that form along with more of the same from Jones, who had 17 sacks in 2107, would be a welcome development on defense in head coach Steve Wilks’ first season in Arizona.

  1. I hope, for his sake, he doesn’t catch that ACL. If I was him, I’d be going in the other direction.

  2. Some might say he has a golden opportunity to make things right. To practice, he has been spending his time chasing around Wilson, an inflated ball with lotsa hot air.

  3. Yea Baby!! You and Jones!!! Wholly cow. Bit 30 sacks between you these 2 guys. Again, HEALTH is the only thing that will stop this team. I just Hearn an announcer not even say Cardinal while talking about NFC West. Rams or Cards 1st if Bradford stays on his feet, then the 49ers and last will be Seattle they lost so many of their players. Wilson can’t do it alone. Seattle is done for 2-3 more years their missing the playoffs will last longer than their Dynasty.
