Rookie tight end Troy Niklas broke his right hand after catching it in another jersey. Head coach Bruce Arians said Niklas got his finger twisted in a jersey last week, which caused the break. Niklas, the Cards’ second-round draft pick, is expected to be ready for training camp in July.
Tight end isn't a featured spot in Bruce Arians' offense, and the depth chart is crowded, with Rob Housler and John Carlson ahead of Niklas. A broken hand won't help matters.
