Cardinals guard Colledge (and his beard) thinking big

GLENDALE,
Ariz. --
Daryn Colledge is out indefinitely
with a nerve issue in his leg, but he's still garnering some attention
in Cardinals training camp thanks to a beard that would make hockey players
proud.

Colledge, projected as the Cards' starting
right guard, explained his impressive growth Saturday before the team's annual Red and White practice.

“I’ve always been a
facial-hair aficionado kind of guy. It’s one of those things where I cut
all of my hair off my head for the heat and I got lonely.


"I thought I’d grow the beard out this year, and now
that I’m injured, I got to leave it on. I don’t even got time to shave
anymore with all the treatment I got. I might just let it go the whole
season. We’ll see where it goes. The last time I grew my beard out, I
won a championship with Green Bay, and maybe we can use this as a
catapult this year.”

Colledge noted that the Super
Bowl is in New Jersey this year, and while this isn't quite a guarantee
...

"When you hold a cold-weather Super Bowl like
this year, you’ve got to plan ahead of time,” he said. "So maybe I’m
just getting ready for what I expect this team to be able to do this
year."
