The Arizona Cardinals have a huge game on Sunday in Glendale against the Philadelphia Eagles, and they'd like to have Calais Campbell back in their lineup.
The defensive end is recovering from a strained right MCL that he suffered on Oct. 5 against the Denver Broncos. Campbell will need to participate in a practice before playing against the Eagles is a possibility.
“I’ve got my fingers crossed,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said via espn.com about Campbell practicing later this week. “But he’s making good progress. “There’s a big difference between jogging and running around a hoop, and taking on guys 300 pounds and pushing on him.”
That's for sure.
Campbell has recorded 16 tackles with a sack and an interception so far this season.
**Elsewhere, halfback Andre Ellington (foot), wide receiver John Brown (ankle), and safety Rashad Johnson (knee) were all limited in practice but expected to play on Sunday.
Ellington has been dealing with his injury all season long and will start after his 24-carry performance against the Raiders last Sunday. Expect Stepfan Taylor to get a minor share of the carries – he scored two touchdowns against the Raiders.Read more... Join the Conversation...
