With their big defensive end just out of a brief stay in the hospital and their star wide receiver nursing a sore hamstring, the Arizona Cardinals don't have much time to recover from their tough loss at San Francisco.

The Cardinals are home against NFC West-leading Seattle on Thursday night.

Defensive end Calais Campbell had a scare when he went down in San Francisco and was carted off the field strapped to a stretcher. He was hospitalized until a barrage of tests cleared him and he took part in the Cardinals' walk-through practice on Monday. He says he hopes to play Thursday.

Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has an extremely sore hamstring.
