    Cardinals' Alex Okafor: Active Sunday

    Okafor (calf) is listed as active Sunday at Seattle, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Okafor's recovery from a strained right calf has encompassed three games and the Cardinals' bye week, but he'll again provide a boost to the front seven. In his career, he's displayed modest pass-rushing chops, notching 10 sacks in 19 career games.

    Cardinals' Alex Okafor: Ready for return

    Okafor (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Seattle, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Okafor is on track to suit up for the first time since Week 5, and while he won't be mistaken for a top outside pass-rusher, he's probably the closest thing the Cardinals have. He had eight sacks in 13 games last season, but he only has two sacks in five appearances this year.

    Cardinals' Alex Okafor: Practices fully Wednesday

    Okafor (calf) practiced fully Wednesday, the Cardinals' official site reports. Okafor has been contained to the trainer's room since straining his right calf on Oct. 11, but an unhinged showing in drills to start the week sets him up for a return Sunday at Seattle. The Cardinals' pass rush has mustered just 13 sacks in eight games, so Okafor's presence (10 sacks in his last 18 games) should provide a boost to the unit in the divisional showdown.

    Cardinals LB Alex Okafor to miss a month

    Cardinals linebacker Alex Okafar emerged from Sunday's win with a calf strain, which will keep him out for a month, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports. The recovery timetable signifies the Cardinals' hope, but they will exercise caution with one of the primary pass rushers. With a number of injuries befalling the linebacker ranks in Arizona -- reserve Kenny Demens suffered a torn ACL on Sunday -- the team inked Dwight Freeney to a veteran minimum deal, though LaMarr Woodley and Markus Golden could be the immediate beneficiaries of available snaps.

    Cardinals LB Alex Okafor (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game

    Cardinals linebacker Alex Okafor (shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest versus the Rams, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports. Okafor is one of two Cardinals linebackers to log more than 80 percent of the defensive snaps this season -- 82 percent, to be exact -- but he's managed just nine tackles (six solo) and two sacks. As the season continues, expect his primary contributions to take place in the sack department.

    Cardinals LB Alex Okafor suffers dislocated finger Week 3

    Cardinals linebacker Alex Okafor suffered a dislocated finger during Sunday's win against the 49ers, the Cardinals' official site reports. Entering the game, Okafor had logged 88 percent of the Cardinals' defensive snaps this season, but he was contained to 34 of 51 (67 percent) in Week 3, according to Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix. Okafor managed one assisted tackle as well, bringing his season-long line to nine tackles (six solo) and two sacks. Expected to serve as one of the team's top pass rushers following an eight-sack campaign in 2014, he should get back on the ledger sooner rather than later.
