News: Authorities say Arizona Cardinals linebacker John Abraham was arrested on a drunken driving charge a month ago in the Atlanta area. Abraham has been absent from the team's training camp since Friday. Impact: DeKalb County Jail records show that the 36-year-old was taken into custody June 29 and released the same day. The records show Abraham was charged with driving under the influence involving alcohol, as well as stopping, standing or parking in a prohibited place. Records from the jail do not indicate whether the case had been resolved as of Tuesday, nor do they list an attorney for Abraham.(STATS, 11:14am)

News: Abraham was arrested for driving under the influence last month, the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Abraham was charged with DUI back in 2003 while a member of the New York Jets. If found guilty of the recent charge, he may be subject to NFL discipline, but the issue is unlikely to be resolved before the beginning of the season. It's unclear whether the recent arrest is related to Abraham's absence from training camp, but either way, he figures to be playing come Week 1. Though he's now 36 years old, he recorded at least 9.5 sacks in each of the last four seasons, including 11.5 in 2013.(RotoWire, )

News: Abraham was excused from training camp Friday due to a personal matter, thereby delaying his conditioning test, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports. Impact: Despite ringing in at 36 years old, the test is likely all but a formality for the greybeard, who has missed a grand total of two games over the last seven seasons. As long as the Cardinals keep his snaps in check, Abraham will have every opportunity to tally double-digit sacks for the ninth time in 15 campaigns. However, the loss of Karlos Dansby via free agency will place the burden on second-year linebacker Kevin Minter to hold down the fort inside, which could hinder Abraham's pass-rush opportunities.(RotoWire, )
