Larry Fitzgerald caught 7-of-12 passes for 60 yards in the Cardinals' Week 3 loss to the Bills.
Fitzgerald contributed a handful of clutch catches to keep drives alive, but didn't get loose for any big plays and was unable to corral a few end-zone targets. On a day where Carson Palmer attempted 50 throws, it was disappointing that no Arizona receiver topped 70 yards. (John Brown led the team with exactly 70.) Expect Fitzgerald to bounce back in Week 4 against the Rams, who have struggled to slow down slot receivers early this year. Sep 25 - 5:08 PM

Date:

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) has been removed from the injury report.

It's the same routine the Cardinals did last week. Fitzgerald is a high-end WR2 against Buffalo.
Sep 23 - 5:02 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was upgraded to "full' in Thursday's practice.

The Cards will continue to ration Fitz's practice snaps. He's on the WR1/2 borderline for Week 3.
Sep 22 - 5:09 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Fitzgerald was also limited last week. The Cardinals are just monitoring his reps.
Sep 21 - 5:29 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-11 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in Arizona's Week 2 win over the Bucs.

Fitz was the Cardinals' most-targeted receiver for the second time in two 2016 games, and now has three touchdowns. He was mere feet away from a fourth, but his knee hit down as he extended the ball for the goal line. Fitz isn't winning based on volume alone, and is dominating his 1-on-1 matchups. He looks like a future Hall-of-Famer still in his prime. He's rendered John Brown a non-factor and Michael Floyd a clear No. 2. Fitz will be a high-upside WR2 for Week 3 against the Bills' scorchable secondary.
Sep 18 - 7:33 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) has been removed from the injury report.

The Cardinals rested Fitzgerald early in the week. He was upgraded to full on Friday, confirming his knee injury is a non-issue. Fitzgerald is a WR2 for Sunday's game against the Bucs.
Sep 16 - 6:41 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The Cardinals are being smart with their veteran's reps. He'll be ready to go as a WR2 against the Bucs.
Sep 15 - 5:13 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Fitzgerald missed time with a knee injury last month but it didn't seem to affect him Sunday when he went for 81 yards and two touchdowns versus New England. It looks like the Cards are just limiting his practice reps to keep him fresh for Week 2 against Tampa Bay. Fitzgerald will be a WR2 for that matchup.
Sep 14 - 5:53 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Larry Fitzgerald "has no plans to retire after this year."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning Fitzgerald had told "people close to him" this would be his last season, but Schefter denies that report. Considering Fitzgerald signed an extension before the season, it would be surprising if he entered the year planning to retire. Fitzgerald was in fine form Week 1, catching 8-of-10 targets for 81 yards and two touchdowns.
Sep 12 - 9:25 AM

Larry Fitzgerald came down with eight catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets Sunday in the Cardinals' Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Fitzgerald singlehandedly kept the Cardinals in Sunday’s game, bailing Carson Palmer out with big play after big play. His second touchdown of the night was a work of art as Fitzgerald made a sprawling catch in the back of the end zone against tight coverage from Logan Ryan. He was also extremely active on Arizona’s final drive of the night, securing three catches for 46 yards. Fitzgerald is reportedly considering retirement but obviously the 33-year-old has plenty left in the tank. He’ll be in the WR2/3 discussion against the Bucs in Week 2.
Sep 12 - 12:54 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Larry Fitzgerald has told "people close to him" that he expects to retire after the 2016 season.

Fitzgerald actually signed a one-year extension with the Cardinals last month but that was probably done to give the team some extra cap room. The 33-year-old has spent his entire 12-year career in Arizona and should be a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame. Coming off one of his best seasons, Fitzgerald will begin his farewell tour Sunday against New England.
Sep 11 - 10:36 AM

Larry Fitzgerald is not on the Week 1 injury report.

It means he is fully recovered from the knee injury which hampered him in camp. Fitzgerald is more of a WR3 as the around the line of scrimmage option in the Cardinals' passing game, but he still has some touchdown upside.
Sep 8 - 10:14 AM

Larry Fitzgerald is sitting out Sunday's regular season dress rehearsal.

Fitz has been battling a "slight" MCL sprain, so the Cards won't take any chances. There's yet to be an indication it's a concern for Fitz's Week 1 status. Last year's WR9 overall is a solid WR3.
Aug 28 - 3:49 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was again held out of Thursday's practice, and is questionable for Sunday's preseason game.

If Fitz isn't practicing today, the Cards will almost certainly be cautious over the weekend. The issue has been lingering for about a week now, but there's been zero indication it will affect Fitz's Week 1 status.
Aug 25 - 3:28 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is practicing at Cardinals camp Sunday after missing the second preseason game.

He sat out the second exhibition with a "slight" MCL sprain. Fitzgerald should be all systems go for next weekend's regular season dress rehearsal, and 100 percent long before Week 1. Fitz is safe to draft as a WR2/3 in fantasy leagues.
