Rotowire: Dec 9 / 10:18a ET
News: Okafor supplied two solo tackles, two quarterback hits, one sack, and one interception in Sunday's win against the Chiefs.
Impact: Over the last five games, Okafor has nearly matched Calais Campbell's sack count during that stretch, falling one shy with five. Meanwhile, acting as John Abraham's replacement, Okafor has more than held his own at weakside linebacker, racking up 17 quarterback pressures, 16 QB hits, seven sacks, five tackles for loss, and one pick in 10 outings this season.
Rotowire: Oct 14 / 7:42a ET
News: Okafor supplied four solo tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss, and two quarterback hits during Sunday's win versus Washington. Overall, he took the field for 90 percent of the defensive snaps, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
Impact: A fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft, Okafor made just one appearance as a rookie before tearing his biceps. After a lengthy recovery effort, he was inactive in each of the Cardinals' first three games this season before making a brief appearance last weekend in Denver. Prior to receiving 54 snaps this past Sunday, he had just 15 total in his career, but with John Abraham (concussion) out for the season and Matt Shaughnessy (knee) on the IR/designated-to-return list, opportunity abounds at outside linebacker for Okafor.
