Arians: OLB Abraham to return to Cardinals Tuesday
The Associated Press
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona coach Bruce Arians says outside linebacker John Abraham will return to the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Abraham left the team last Tuesday after sustaining a concussion in the Cardinals' season-opening victory over San Diego. Arians had said that Abraham was contemplating retirement, wondering if he still has the fire to play the game.
But Arians indicated Monday that Abraham's absence and attitude had more to do with his headaches from the first "real big" concussion of his 15 -year NFL career.
It will be the second return to the Cardinals for Abraham this season. He showed up late for training camp after undergoing what he later confirmed was rehabilitation for an alcohol problem.
Arians had until Tuesday to return or the Cardinals would have had to declare him out for the season.
