Analysis: The big defensive Arizona tackle was injured in the first day of rookie camp on Tuesday, but Saturday was the first time Arians has given a timeline for the rookie's return.

The $8.6 million contract includes a $4.4 million signing bonus.
Analysis: Nkemdiche, a defensive tackle from Mississippi, was considered one of the top talents in the draft but slid to the Cardinals largely because of character concerns. The Cardinals also signed their two fifth-round picks - safety Marqui Christian of Midwestern State and guard Cole Toner of Harvard - to four-year contracts. The signings came on Friday, the first day of Arizona's rookie minicamp.

Analysis: Nkemdiche was considered one of the most talented players in the draft but he was still available late in the first round due to an incident last December at an Atlanta hotel, when he fell 15 feet through a broken window. He was charged with marijuana possession after the drug was found in the hotel room. The Cardinals front office and coaches believe they have the kind of solid locker room culture to help Nkemdiche succeed.
