AZ Cardinals Deny James of Release and Reps
James is frustrated and bewildered by his benching, Rosenhaus said, but the veteran running back isn't talking to the press other than to say he's working hard.
Rosenhaus insisted James did not want to be a distraction in the Cardinals' best season in years. Yet, that's exactly what the news of his request for a release has been.
The Cardinals aren't about to part with James, even though Hightower and J.J. Arrington are getting most of the work these days. If Hightower were to go down with an injury, it's likely that James would return to the starting lineup.
Arrington is seen as more of a situational player rather than someone who could carry the load as a starting running back.

-- CB Rod Hood hasn't practiced this week because of a death in the family. Hood is expected to practice on Friday, but he has been suffering from sore ribs and his status for Sunday's game is in question.
-- OLB Clark Haggans hasn't practiced this week because of a sprained left foot. Haggans is a key backup and plays almost as much as starter Chike Okeafor.
-- CB Eric Green has returned to practice after playing sparingly the past two weeks because of a knee injury. Green could start Sunday against the Giants if Rod Hood can't play.
-- QB Kurt Warner has passed for at least 300 yards in four consecutive games, setting a franchise record. The NFL record is six consecutive games, which Warner shares with Steve Young and Rich Gannon.
