Sunday night, Mike Iupati was taken off the field in an ambulance.
Thursday afternoon, he was practicing again.
The Cardinals left guard was back on the field during practice today, via Darren Urban of the team’s official website.
Iupati was cleared quickly after a frightening-looking hit against the Seahawks, but not before a trip to the hospital to get his neck checked following his collision with Seattle safety Kam Chancellor. He was deemed fit to fly back home with the Cardinals, which was the first good sign.
Iupati was also in the concussion protocol, and it’s unclear if he’s been cleared to play by an independent neurologist. Coach Bruce Arians declared him “day-to-day” But the fact he’s back to work so quickly after being strapped to a board and hauled off the field can only be considered positive.
