The Arizona Cardinals brain trust and coaching staff is currently in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine evaluating pro prospects. The Combine ends on Feb. 26.

Aside from that, there is not a lot of news this morning with the Red Birds. This is a good time then to take a look at how a couple of Cardinals players are progressing from 2012 season-ending injuries:

Center Lyle Sendlein's rehabilitation from a torn knee ligament is progressing as expected and he's expected to be ready for the beginning of the 2013 NFL season. Whether he can participate in spring and summer practices remains to be seen.

Sendlein tore his MCL in Arizona's 31-17 loss to St. Louis on Nov. 25, 2012. Prior to that, the University of Texas product started 80 games in a row since he became Arizona's center as an undrafted rookie during the team's 2008 Super Bowl season.

Running back Ryan Williams continues to improve as he recovers from a shoulder injury that knocked him out for the 2012 season. He should be ready to participate in upcoming mini camps though. His bigger concern is the knee injury that kept him out all his rookie season in 2011. Ironically, the extra time off Williams has had because of the shoulder injury has given him more time to come back from his knee injury.

Williams started three games for Arizona last season and played in five overall. He finished with 164 yards on 58 carries and added seven receptions for 44 yards last season. He has yet to score a touchdown in his young career.
