The Arizona Cardinals decision to play or not play Josh Rosen in the preseason finale is an easy one. Jody Oehler says the Redbirds should play the rookie signal-caller on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos.
"This is a necessary opportunity for Josh Rosen to maximize"
Rosen has played just 46 snaps during the exhibition season while having thrown just 29 passes. The 10th overall pick is 16-of-29 for 148 yards and a touchdown pass. Rosen missed the Cardinals third preseason game after hitting the thumb on his throwing hand on a helmet in practice early last week.
First-year head coach Steve Wilks still believes Rosen has proven enough to begin the season as backup to starting quarterback Sam Bradford.
