QB Kevin Kolb has been hard on himself after last week's loss and an injury update heading into Sunday's game against the Giants.

PLAYER NOTES

--QB Kevin Kolb has been hard on himself after last week's loss to the Seahawks. It was his worst game as a Cardinal but it wasn't as bad as some people are making it out to be. Kolb completed 25 of 39 passes and ran the no-huddle well.

--DE Calais Campbell had 2.5 sacks against Seattle, a career high for a single game.

--OLB Clark Haggans doesn't expect to face disciplinary action from the NFL for an offseason transgression. It was reported that Haggans was one of eight players subject to discipline. Haggans was cited for speeding while rushing home for a family emergency, said his agent, Jeff Sperbeck. Sperback said neither he nor Haggans had been in contact with anyone from the NFL about the matter.

--WR Larry Fitzgerald needs two touchdowns to tie Roy Green for the franchise lead. Fitzgerald broke the record for receiving touchdowns last week.

--TE Todd Heap passed Ben Coates for 14th place on the NFL's all-time receiving yardage list for tight ends. Heap has 5,601.

INJURY IMPACT

--RB Beanie Wells was limited in practice this week because of a hamstring strain. Wells suffered the injury in practice last week and didn't play against the Seahawks. He said he is definitely playing this week, but he said that a week ago, too.

--ILB Daryl Washington returned to action last week after missing the second game because of a calf strain. Washington, a starter, is a big part of the defense and his return should bolster a unit that's had problems.

--ILB Paris Lenon is limited with a groin strain that's bothered him for two weeks. Lenon is playing through the injury. Stewart Bradley can spell Lenon without much of a decrease in production.

--WR Chansi Stuckey remains out with a hamstring injury. It's not a big loss. Stephen Williams and DeMarco Sampson move up the depth chart.

--TE Jim Dray remains out with a pectoral injury. It's not a big loss. Dray is fourth on the depth chart
