Campbell underwent successful sports hernia surgery during the first week of February, the Cardinals' official site reports.Campbell played through the injury from at least Week 13 through the Cardinals' wild-card playoff loss in Carolina. Additionally, he sat out Weeks 6 and 7 due to a sprained MCL in his right knee, but the ailments didn't stop the pass rusher from racking up 58 tackles (48 solo), seven sacks, nine tackles for loss, one forced fumble, and one interception in 14 games last season. Upon returning to the Cardinals' facility Tuesday, he relayed that he expects to be healthy in time for the commencement of offseason workouts in the latter half of April.

Campbell will undergo surgery next week to repair a sports hernia that he played through after Week 13, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

Campbell has played 13 or more games in each of his seven NFL seasons, but he seemingly deals with an injury or two every year. In 2014, it was the sports hernia and a sprained MCL, with the latter causing him to miss Weeks 6 and 7. Campbell still had another fantastic year, piling up 58 tackles (48 solo), seven sacks, an interception, a forced fumble and three passes defensed. He should be healthy by the start of training camp next season, and while the Cardinals have a rather unfavorable cap situation, Campbell doesn't figure to be one of the casualties.

Campbell supplied 58 tackles (48 solo), seven sacks, nine tackles for loss, three passes defended, one interception, and one forced fumble across 14 contests in 2014.

After spraining the MCL in his right knee in Week 5, Campbell was resigned to a 3-to-4 week absence. However, he bucked expectations, missing just two games without the benefit of a bye week. He proceeded to tally six sacks in a five-game span from Weeks 10 through 14, but outside of that stretch, his IDP contributions were few and far between. No matter, the 28-year-old recorded at least six sacks for the sixth campaign in a row, meaning the pass rusher should regain premier status with running mate Darnell Dockett (knee) back in the picture next season.

Campbell (hip) is probable for Sunday's game against Seattle.

Campbell practiced all week, so the hip isn't a concern. Campbell is a beast and typically plays well against Seattle, so his IDP owners should keep rolling with him.

Campbell (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Campbell has fit in two capped practices to start the week, but his status for Sunday's game against the Seahawks isn't really in question.

Campbell produced six tackles (five solo), one sack, one tackle for loss, and one pass defended during Sunday's victory versus the Chiefs.

With 26 tackles (20 solo) and six sacks over the last five games, there's little doubt that Campbell is upholding the standard set throughout his career, which includes at least six sacks in six consecutive seasons. As the season draws to a close, he'll aim to take down NFC West signal callers in each of the Cardinals' three remaining tilts.
