Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell sent an apology via text message to Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill after a Campbell hit on Tannehill during Sunday’s game caused Tannehill to suffer a sprained ACL.

“It definitely wasn’t on purpose,” Campbell told the Cardinals’ official website. “I’ve never been that kind of guy. I never will be that kind of guy.”

Campbell was not flagged for the hit, and he said he was just “playing hard” when he was shoved by Dolphins tackle Branden Albert while rushing the passer and ended up hitting Tannehill’s left knee.
