Karlos Dansby had 10 tackles in the Cardinal’s 24-17 win over the Giants in New York. Dansby is leading the team in tackles with 39 on the season.

Quarterbacks:
Jason Campbell #17, looked lost at times behind that terrible offensive line in Washington’s 27-17 loss to the Eagles Monday night. He finished 29 of 43 for 284 yards and 2 TDs but had a costly pass tipped at the line that the Eagles ran in for 6.  Campbell needs to get the ball out immediately, but he was sacked 6 times and sprained his ankle in the first half.  The Skins got no help from the running game (54 yards) and Campbell’s favorite target, Chris Cooley, was lost to a first half injury.
He has completed 66% (7th) of his passes this season for 1481 yards (14th), 8 TDs, 7 INTs with a QB rating of 85.8. He has run the ball 24 times for 103 yards and has lost 3 fumbles.

Running Backs:
Ronnie Brown #23, had 48 yards on 16 carries and a TD in the Dolphins’ 46-34 loss to the Saints.  Up by 10 going into the 4th quarter, the Dolphins decided to throw the ball instead of doing what has worked so well for them all year – running it. A great running game? Up most of the game? 30 runs and 37 passes? Baffling.
Brown has started every game for the Dolphins and has carried 109 times for 491 (7th) yards, a 4.5 yard avg. He has 7 TDs (3rd), and also has 9 receptions for 64 yards and is 1/2 passing for 14 yards.
Heath Evans #44, had one carry for 2 yards and 2 catches for 3, but tore his ACL in the Saints’ 46-34 win over the Dolphins and will be out for the year.  A key cog to that Saints’ offense, he will be sorely missed.
For the season Heath has those 5 carries for 16 yards and 10 catches for 70 yds and 2 TDs.
Tony Richardson #49, did not have a stat and didn’t stay in the game long as the Jets’ filleted the Raiders 38-0.
Tony has 3 carries for 12 yards in 6 starts this year.

Brandon Jacobs #27, finally got into the end zone again, but it wasn’t enough as the Giants fell to the Arizona Cardinals 24-17. Brandon had 76 yards on 13 carries and 1 TD as well as catching 2 passes for 11 yards.
For the year, Jacobs has 464 (9th) yards on 120 attempts for a 3.9 avg. 2 TDs and has caught 7 passes for 34 yards.

From the Calgary Herald:

The Stamps return to practice today, having added some new bodies with the expansion of league practice rosters to assess prospects for future training camps, but also losing a player after rookie linebacker Tray Blackmon elected to return home.

The former Auburn Tiger hadn’t played since hurting his ankle in the Week 7 loss to Edmonton, and didn’t have a way back into the lineup with the emergence of Tim Johnson at the middle linebacker spot.

“He left on his own accord; he came in and chatted with me, and unfortunately I couldn’t do what he wanted me to do for him, which was to get him on the field,” said Hufnagel. “He has a family back home. But that’s not to say that he won’t be a Stampeder again; we parted on good terms.”
