Langford missed the final four games of the 2016 season with a knee injury. He signed a four-year deal with Chicago in 2015, but they cut him loose before the 2017 campaign. Both the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets brought him in, but he never saw the field with either one. Langford ran for a combined 737 yards and 10 touchdowns in 28 games with the Bears, as he hopes to return to the NFL field for the first time in two years this upcoming season.
One person who will not be on the field this season is Arizona Cardinals center A.Q. Shipley, who is done for the season with a torn ACL. The injury occurred during practice on Saturday, as an MRI confirmed the injury, according to head coach Steve Wilks.
The veteran was entering his seventh season in the NFL and started all 16 games in each of the past two seasons for Arizona. Shipley called this unfortunate incident "the hardest news of my life" on social media. Mason Cole, a third-round draft pick this past April, is the expected replacement for Shipley. Cole started all four years as a member of the Michigan Wolverines.
