Daryn Colledge ARI 2 Months
Cardinals LG Daryn Colledge was forced from Arizona's Week 7 game against the Seahawks with a back injury.
Colledge was deemed "questionable," but it doesn't appear he'll be returning. Nate Potter is now in the game at left guard. It's not good news for a team whose line has been getting overwhelmed.

Cardinals RG Daryn College (leg) returned to practice Monday.
He worked with the first-team offense in 11-on-11s. The Cardinals' O-Line is shaping up as Levi Brown and Eric Winston at the tackles, Colledge and Jonathan Cooper at guard, and Lyle Sendlein at center. Bobby Massie has been demoted to swing/tackle guard, vying for sixth-man duties with Nate Potter.

Cardinals RG Daryn Colledge (leg) will miss "another week or so."
Colledge has missed the past couple of training camp practices, and he's questionable for the preseason opener against the Packers on August 9. Colledge has a firm grip on the right guard job, but coach Bruce Arians recently praised fourth-round rookie Earl Watford's strength. He could make a move on the veteran.

Daryn Colledge has been lining up at right guard in Cardinals OTAs.
It's an indication the Cardinals plan to keep first-round pick Jonathan Cooper at his college position of left guard, even though Cooper was running with the second-team offense Tuesday. Colledge has been a left guard throughout his career, but the Cardinals must trust he can make the transition. They could just be experimenting, of course. We might not get a clear idea of how things will shake out along the Birds' line before training camp.

Cardinals LG Daryn Colledge restructured his contract in order to save the team $2.325 million in cap space.
Colledge didn't take a pay cut. He decreased his $3.8 million salary to $700K and received a $3.1 million "signing" bonus to compensate. The bonus is prorated, dropping College's 2012 cap number from $5.5 million to $3.175 million. His future cap numbers are all higher now, however. Colledge graded out as a top-eight run blocking guard by Pro Football Focus during his first season with Arizona. He struggled mightily as a pass protector.

Cardinals agreed to terms with OG Daryn Colledge on an undisclosed contract.
The Packers allowed Colledge to walk because they want to force themselves to get better at the position. Colledge started 76 of 80 games in Green Bay since being drafted in the second round back in 2007. This is the first of several moves up front for the Cardinals, who are revamping a poor pass-blocking line.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has "heard" that the Rams also may have interest in free agent OG Daryn Colledge.
Previous reports linked Colledge to the Cardinals, but he would be a poor fit for their power-running scheme. The Rams have valued pass protection above all else from their guard spots in recent seasons. Colledge excels in that area.
