Cardinals HC Bruce Arians said WR John Brown left Week 12’s game because of issues caused by the sickle-cell trait which forced him from a game earlier this year.
“That’s the one that’s so baffling,” Arians said, via Arizona Sports 98.7. “It’s not really a pull. Whatever the blood issue he has the legs tighten up.”
Arians also said that Brown met with a “bunch of specialists” on Monday.

- Kent Somers writes that although the Cardinals would like to re-sign DL Calais Campbell, he is expected to reach free agency this offseason since the team drafted first-round DL Robert Knemdiche.
- Somers believes Campbell will test the open market and be able to sign a lucrative contract despite his age.
Although Dolphins TE Jordan Cameron (concussion, I.R.) insisted his NFL career is not finished yet, he will decide the future of his playing career this offseason.
“I’m not shutting the door on anything,” said Cameron, via Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald. “I’m going to wait until after the season. I’m kind of glad I get to talk to you because everyone’s counting me out — he’s done, he’s retiring. No, I’m not. I’ll think about that after the season. That’s really all I have to say about it.”
It’s worth mentioning that Cameron went on to say he feels “a lot better,” since sustaining his fourth concussion.
Rams executive Kevin Demoff said the team is pleased with how HC Jeff Fisher has done given their situation and that it would be unfair to judge him harshly.
“Everybody will want to judge Jeff through the prism of just the record, but that’s totally unfair when you look at the set of circumstances he was handed this year,” said Demoff, via Steve Wyche of NFL.com. “It was different than any team in the NFL.
“We moved halfway across the country, then had OTAs in Oxnard. Training camp was in Irvine, now we’re in Thousand Oaks. We moved coaches and players and families. To provide leadership and consistency, he’s done a model job.”
It is worth mentioning that Fisher’s contract is set to expire after this season.
Jamison Hensley of ESPN writes that the Ravens have been notified by the NFL that they are under consideration to play the Jaguars in London next year.
It is worth mentioning that Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti expressed his willingness to play a game in the UK last year to season-ticket holders.
“I would absolutely love going to London,” Bisciotti said. “I think it would be great. Hopefully it would be the time of year that we could get a lot of fans over there, whether it be near Christmas or near Thanksgiving, or September when the weather is still beautiful, even in the UK. I’m all for it. I think it would be a blast.”
