[1]GLENDALE, Ariz. — The “Honey Badger” is about to get his first NFL start.

Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that rookie Tyrann Mathieu will start at free safety in place of injured Rashad Johnson when the Arizona Cardinals play the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.

Mathieu has been a sensation in training camp as he looks to make a comeback after being booted from the LSU team for marijuana use and sitting out football altogether last season.

In his NFL debut in Arizona’s 17-0 victory at Green Bay last week, Mathieu had a 12-yard sack, a tackle for loss, a pass defended, two special teams tackles and a 24-yard punt return.
