Calais Campbell DL ARI 5 Days

Campbell accrued 10 solo tackles, three tackles for loss, and one sack in Sunday's win versus the Giants in New York.

Among Cardinals defensive linemen, Campbell played a team-high 66-of-72 defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. In any case, the performance was a welcome relief, after he was blanked in the Week 1 box score. Because this year's defense is without a number of 2013 stalwarts -- Darnell Dockett (knee), Daryl Washington (suspension), Karlos Dansby (to Cleveland via free agency), and John Abraham (concussion) -- Campbell must be his usual disruptive self for the Cardinals to survive the losses.

Cardinals RE Calais Campbell suffered a quadriceps injury on Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's opener against the Rams.

Campbell was a full participant Wednesday and Thursday before missing Friday's session altogether. If not for J.J. Watt, Campbell would be in the discussion as the best 3-4 defensive end in the game. His loss would be a big one. If Campbell were to miss, some combo of Ronald Talley, Matt Shaughnessy, and Frostee Rucker would fill in. It'd be a boon to Daryl Richardson's Week 1 outlook.

Cardinals DEs Calais Campbell and Darnell Dockett are allowed to be more "aggressive" and "create penetration" in DC Todd Bowles' new defense.

"They want us to shove (offensive linemen) back and be able to shed blocks quicker and make tackles in the backfield, which I think Dockett and myself would be very, very good at," said Campbell. "We're very athletic." Campbell didn't have any troubles in previous DC Ray Horton's "two-gap" scheme, but Dockett was openly displeased. Campbell has a chance to be an even bigger star. The 6-foot-8, 300-pound 26-year-old has 14.5 sacks and a J.J. Watt-esque 18 batted passes over the last two seasons.

Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt expects LE Calais Campbell (calf) back for Week 13 against the Jets.

Campbell said he'd be back for Week 12, so take this with a minor grain of salt. However, coaches are usually more realistic about injuries than players. The two games Campbell has missed since the Cardinals' Week 10 bye are one more than he missed through his first four NFL seasons. His return will be bad news for Mark Sanchez.
