Arizona defensive end Calais Campbell is expected to play Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
News of his return comes four days after the 27-year-old was carted off the field with a neck injury suffered in the fourth quarter of the Cardinals' loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Campbell was hospitalized for part of the night because of the injury but was back at the team's facility the next day. He underwent a series of neck and spine tests at Stanford University, and doctors determined that he is fit to return to game action.
Campbell told the Associated Press earlier this week that he's feeling fine and looks forward to the return:
“I feel pretty good now. Football’s my life. I’m definitely looking forward to strapping it up and playing again.”
On the season, Campbell has three sacks and a forced fumble. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/390851012061581312
