Browns waive DB Campbell

BEREA — The Browns waived defensive back Ibraheim Campbell with an injury designation.

Campbell, who started two games at safety this season, injured a hamstring during practice on Wednesday.

With his secondary still nursing some other injuries, coach Hue Jackson said it was vital to bring in a healthy player and the club signed defensive back Derron Smith off Cincinnati’s practice squad.

The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Smith appeared in 31 games for the Bengals.

He’s in his third season out of Fresno State. The Bengals selected Smith in the sixth round in the 2015 draft.

He played in three games for Cincinnati this season.

The Browns drafted Campbell in the fourth round in 2015 and he played in 37 games.

Cleveland has been dealing with injuries throughout its secondary.

Wilson leads Seahawks in Arizona

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Russell Wilson has been confounding the Arizona Cardinals with his escape antics for a long time.

He did it again Thursday night in the biggest play of the Seattle Seahawks’ 22-16 victory.

In what his coach Pete Carroll called “an extraordinary play,” Wilson eluded the Cardinals with an array of jukes and spin moves before completing a 54-yard pass to Doug Baldwin, setting up his second touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham.

Seattle climbed within a half-game of the first-place Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West in a game marred by a host of injuries, including a season-ending one to Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman.

The Seahawks (6-3) limited Adrian Peterson to 29 yards in 21 carries, improving to 4-0-1 in Arizona in Bruce Arians’ five seasons as coach of the Cardinals (4-5).

Sherman limped off the field in the third quarter, one of at least seven players who left the game with injuries. He said afterward he had ruptured an Achilles tendon. He had sat out practice all week nursing the sore Achilles, knowing it could go at any moment.
