TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell was back at the team's practice facility Monday, less than 24 hours after he was carted off the field in San Francisco.
The 6-foot-8, 300-pounder hopes to be cleared to play for Arizona's home against Seattle on Thursday night. Another test was scheduled for Monday.
Campbell underwent tests at Stanford University' for possible neck and spine injuries, and all results were favorable. He was released late Sunday and flew to Arizona in the plane of Cardinals President Michael Bidwill.
He participated in the team's walk-through practice Monday and expressed no qualms about returning.
"I feel pretty good now," he said. "Football's my life. I'm definitely looking forward to strapping it up and playing again."
Coach Bruce Arians said Campbell bruised his spine, but Campbell said he wasn't' exactly sure what was wrong.
"It was scary for a second," he said.
Teammate Sam Acho saw Campbell on Monday and tweeted: "He's smiling and looking as good as ever."
Meanwhile, 49ers owner Jed York criticized some of his team's fans for doing the wave while Campbell was down. He said in a tweet Sunday that to say he was "disappointed would be an understatement." Arizona linebacker Daryl Washington called the fans' reaction "disrespectful."
