GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says safety Tyrann Mathieu is ''pretty close'' to coming off the physically unable to perform list and could be practicing with the team within a week.
Mathieu, known widely as the ''Honey Badger,'' was having a standout rookie season when he tore the ACL and LCL in his left knee against St. Louis on Dec. 8. In 13 games, he had 62 tackles, a sack, two interceptions, four tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a special teams tackle.
Mathieu says he is ''itching to hit someone'' and is tired of playing catch with the trainers.
Arians says nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu , who tore his ACL in the final game last season, also is close to coming off the PUP list.
