A controversial player during his time at Ole Miss, it appears as if DL Robert Nkemdiche is falling into a similar pattern with the Arizona Cardinals.

Picked in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the enigmatic Nkemdiche has been battling an ankle injury — limiting his time on the field as a rookie.

However according to Alex Marvez, Arizona head coach Bruce Arians may be also questioning Nkemdiche’s practice habits.

Reading between the lines, it appears as if the former Ole Miss defensive lineman may be sitting out this upcoming weekend against the Buffalo Bills — even if he’s healthy. The shelf life for an NFL player is already rather short. If one throws off-the-field and work-ethic problems into the mix, the shelf life can decrease even further.
