Arizona Cardinals linebacker Alex Okafor (shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest versus the St. Louis 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.

Okafor dislocated a finger Sunday against the 49ers, which limited him to 67 percent of the Cardinals' defensive snaps. With one assisted tackle on the ledger, he has nine tackles (six solo) and two sacks on the season. Thus, he's on the same pace as his eight-sack campaign from 2014.
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.
