According to USA TODAY Sports, Cardinals first round pick, safety Deone Bucannon has been missing practice due to turf toe.
Safety Deone Bucannon, the first-round draft choice, is missing work because of turf toe. He is attending practices but just watching. He wasn’t moving well on Thursday. It’s too early to say that Bucannon is falling behind, but it’s never good to miss time. Rookie safeties often struggle early in their careers. Adrian Wilson certainly did. Seattle’s Earl Thomas is regarded as perhaps the best in the game, but he suffered breakdowns in pass coverage in his rookie season. It’s a hard position to play. This is valuable practice time and Bucannon’s missing it.
