Campbell compiled 99 tackles (69 solo, seven for loss), three pass defenses, two sacks and one forced fumble in 16 appearances during the 2020 campaign.
Campbell landed in Arizona last offseason on the heels of a career-high 129 tackles with the Falcons in 2019. While his production was more in line with his 2017 and 2018 seasons, he also was competing for stops with Budda Baker and Jordan Hicks, both of whom accrued 118 tackles on the year. Campbell's contract voids as of Feb. 12, so it'll be interesting to see if he stays in the desert or moves on to a different organization.
Campbell (ankle) will play in Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.
Campbell sat out Wednesday's practice before being limited Thursday and ultimately upgrading to full speed for Friday's session. Although Campbell started last week's game, rookie Isaiah Simmons out-snapped him 27-22. The Cardinals may roll with a similar snap share this week.
Campbell (ankle) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Campbell missed practice completely Wednesday, so this news offers reason for optimism with respect to his chances of playing in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Campbell only saw action in 45 percent of defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Giants, a sign the injury could hamper his snap count going forward. Rookie Isaiah Simmons would be in line for a start at inside linebacker should Campbell miss Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Campbell (ankle) was a non-participant during Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Campbell suited up in last week's game against the Giants after failing to suit up in any practice time, so the hope is that this week is no different. Campbell only saw 45 percent of defensive snaps in the game, accumulating four tackles (one solo), so the injury could hamper his play going forward. Rookie Isaiah Simmons would be in line for a start at inside linebacker should Campbell miss Sunday's game against the Eagles.

The ankle injury is a new one for Campbell, who has previously battled a calf injury this season. He has racked up 80 tackles this season for the Cardinals, and the linebacker will hope to heal up in time to face the Giants on Sunday.
Campbell registered six tackles, including a sack and an additional tackle for loss, during Sunday's 20-17 loss to New England.
Campbell sacked Patriots quarterback Cam Newton on New England's second offensive drive of the day, though Newton was able to convert on a 3rd-and-16 the subsequent play with a 17-yard completion to Damiere Byrd. The Minnesota product has been getting more involved in Arizona's pass rush of late, with sacks in two of his past four games. He hasn't been as much of a tackling machine his past few outings, however, with just 16 combined takedowns the last four weeks. Campbell averaged 8.1 tackles per game Weeks 1 through 7.
Campbell (calf) is active for Thursday's divisional contest in Seattle.
Campbell was initially listed as questionable to face the Seahawks, but he's been cleared to go Thursday. If the starting linebacker's calf issue limits him in any capacity, however, rookie first-round pick Isaiah Simmons could get a chance to handle increased snaps.
Campbell (calf) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.
Campbell practiced in limited fashion Wednesday, which is a good sign for his chances to play, especially considering he was estimated at DNP the past two days. If the Minnesota product was forced to miss the pivotal matchup Thursday, rookie Isaiah Simmons would likely draw the start at inside linebacker.
Campbell (calf) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
The 27-year-old departed Sunday's win over the Bills with the calf injury and has been listed as a DNP on the first two injury reports of the week. Campbell may need to practice in some capacity Wednesday to have a chance of suiting up Thursday in Seattle.
Campbell (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bills, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Campbell left Sunday's contest early in the fourth quarter. As a regular every-down starter in Arizona's linebacker corps, Campbell's presence won't be easy to replace if he can't return. He'll also face a quick turnaround for Week 11, as the Cardinals are scheduled to travel to Seattle for a Thursday night matchup.
Campbell collected eight solo tackles and one assist during Sunday's 30-10 win against the Jets.
With another strong showing on the stat sheet Week 5, Campbell now has nine-plus tackles in three of his past four outings. Campbell was a tackling machine during his final campaign as a Falcon also, recording 19 more tackles than any other player on the team last year. Arizona's Week 6 opponent, Dallas, will be without starting quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) for the remainder of the season, leaving veteran Andy Dalton in control of the Cowboys' No. 3 scoring offense.
Campbell recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to Carolina.
Campbell played in all of his team's defensive snaps in Week 4 for the second straight week. He's racked up nine or more tackles in two of his first four contests through the first quarter of the season.
Campbell racked up seven tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 24-20 victory at San Francisco.
After signing with the Cardinals in the offseason, Campbell was set to start at inside linebacker next to Jordan Hicks. However, the team proceeded to select LB Isaiah Simmons, eighth overall, in April's draft, blurring who would get the nod at that position. Week 1 seems to have revealed Arizona's plans, as both Campbell and Hicks played all 62 defensive snaps, while Simmons logged 18 of them. As such, Campbell should have plenty of opportunity to produce with his new squad.
The Falcons signed Campbell to a one-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Campbell -- whose deal is worth up to $8.5 million -- increased his tackle total in each of his four seasons with the Falcons, topping out at 129 in 2019. He also got in the act otherwise with 5.5 sacks, five forced fumbles and three interceptions in 59 career games. With the move from a 4-3 alignment to a 3-4 in Arizona, he seems likely to take on the starting inside linebacker spot next to Jordan Hicks.
General manager Thomas Dimitroff said the team will let Campbell "hit the market" in March to see what his value is, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.
Campbell is set to become an unrestricted free agent, so this is a risky move for the Falcons. Other teams can contact Campbell starting March 16th but can't sign him until the 18th, so Atlanta could use those two days to evaluate and potentially match the offers the outside linebacker receives. Campbell recorded a career-high 129 tackles in 2019 and started every game.
Campbell and the Falcons have had preliminary talks regarding a potential contract extension, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The 26-year-old linebacker is coming off a career season, and agent Drew Rosenhaus is optimistic about Campbell's outlook for the upcoming free-agency period. "There will be a lot of interest in (Campbell)," Rosenhaus said. "We have had positive dialogue with the Falcons." Campbell has suited up for all 48 of Atlanta's regular-season games over the past three years and in 2019 produced personal bests in tackles (129), tackles for loss (six) and interceptions (two). Atlanta's front office is laying ground work to try and bring back the blossoming Campbell, though it remains to be seen if the cash-strapped team will have sufficient budget to pay up. Atlanta ranks 29th in cap space, and also must consider expiring deals for Austin Hooper and Vic Beasley.
Campbell collected three tackles during Sunday's 28-22 overtime win against the Buccaneers, and wrapped up the 2019 campaign with 129 total tackles, six tackles for loss, two interceptions and two sacks.
The 26-year-old linebacker stands right alongside Austin Hooper and Vic Beasley as Atlanta's most-prized free agents to-be of the 2020 offseason, after obliterating his previous career high in tackles by 35. Campbell also proved to be an enforcer in the run game with six tackles for loss, and he generated three takeaways for a Falcons defense that finished tied for 19th in the NFL with 1.2 per game. The 2016 fourth-round pick has been durable in suiting up for all 48 of Atlanta's regular-season contests over the past three years, and he likely is in line for a substantial pay raise in his first shot at free agency.
Campbell racked up four solo tackles and five assists during Sunday's 24-12 win against Jacksonville.
The 26-year-old Campbell has been an absolute tackling machine the past three weeks, racking up an eye-popping 27 tackles against the Panthers, 49ers and Jaguars, while also collecting two pass deflections, a tackle for loss and a QB hit during that span. Taking on a Tampa Bay offense Week 17 that ranks No. 1 in the NFL with 69.3 plays from scrimmage per game, Campbell is poised for another prolific showing in the tackle column during Atlanta's 2019 season finale.
