Calais Campbell injury: Defensive end carted off the field in loss to 49ers

The loss to a division rival also sees one of the team's best defensive players get injured.

In the fourth quarter of the 32-20 loss the Arizona Cardinals suffered to the San Francisco 49ers, they suffered another more important loss. Defensive end Calais Campbell left the ballgame with an injury and was carted off the field on a stretcher.

Campbell had left the game earlier with the training staff looking at his arm and hand. He came back in, but then, with what led him to be carted off the field, he experienced tingling in his arm.

As he was carted off, he was greeted by teammates and opponents, all very concerned. Campbell gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he left the field.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said postgame that Campbell had movement in all his extremities (a very good thing). The feeling in his arm was returning, but he was headed to the hospital to be checked out.

Obviously, this is a scary type of injury, so hopefully it is nothing serious.

Any time lost to injury will be a blow to the Cardinals defense, who have a short turnaround for their next game. They host the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.
