Alex 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.
Alex 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.
Alex 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 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 Wildcats Republic reports.
The recovery timetable signifies the Arizona 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.
Alex Okafor was ruled out of Sunday's game at Detroit with a right calf injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Okafor required assistance to reach the sideline, so the ailment could be one that results in an absence. His week of preparation should shed light on his ability to play next Sunday in Pittsburgh.
