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

Date:

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.
Aug 21 - 4:45 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Larry Fitzgerald is dealing with a "slight MCL" sprain.

Fitzgerald was held out of practice Wednesday before sitting out the second preseason game Friday night. There is not much reason for concern at this point, but Fitzgerald will likely be babied through the rest of the preseason. With John Brown still not practicing because of a concussion, the Cardinals have some injury issues at receiver.

Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will not play in the Cardinals' second preseason game Friday night.

Fitzgerald is listed with a knee injury which forced him to miss Wednesday's practice, but all indications are it is just a day-to-day injury. John Brown (concussion), Tyrann Mathieu (knee), Justin Bethel (foot), and Robert Nkemdiche (ankle) will also sit out.
Aug 19 - 8:20 PM

Cardinals signed WR Larry Fitzgerald to a one-year, $11 million extension through 2017.

The Cardinals now have Fitzgerald under control for $22 million over the next two seasons. Fitzgerald showed that he has plenty left in the tank by snagging 109 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns last year. He did flame out late in the regular season, though Fitzgerald turned in a vintage effort against Green Bay in the postseason with eight catches for 176 yards in an overtime victory. The nine-time Pro Bowler turns 33 later this month.
Aug 5 - 4:12 PM

Larry Fitzgerald has "no idea" if 2016 will be his final season.

Fitz has previously admitted this could be his final campaign, but was more coy on Tuesday. "Honestly, I have no idea," Fitz said. "I really don't look at it like that." Fitz averaged a career low 11.1 yards per reception last season, but it was largely by design. He worked underneath with Michael Floyd and John Brown doing damage downfield. Fitz was far less productive with Floyd at full health, but still posted a sparkling 109/1,215/9 line. Although he's going on 33, there's little doubt Fitz could physically play more than one season. The question is if the mental steam will remain.

Larry Fitzgerald said 2016 could be his last season.

Fitzgerald’s in the final season of a two-year deal. He rebounded with a career-high 109 catches in 2015, but hasn’t ruled out retiring after this year. "After the season — hopefully it’s in February — I’ll sit down and think about it, what I want to do moving forward," Fitzgerald said. "A lot of it's tied to Carson (Palmer) — Carson's playing at a high level. I don't want to go through any other quarterback situations." Fitzgerald showed he had plenty left last year, but might consider retirement if the Cardinals win the Super Bowl. He's entering his age-33 season.
Apr 20 - 6:37 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-7 targets for 30 yards in the Cardinals' NFC title game loss to Carolina.

Fitzgerald saw little to none of Josh Norman as the Panthers kept Norman outside on Michael Floyd. Slot man Fitzgerald still failed to capitalize as Arizona's passing game never got off the ground with Carson Palmer under frequent duress. The Panthers' ability to create havoc in the backfield and in the middle of the field kept Fitzgerald quiet. He also dropped two passes in the second half. Fitzgerald showed he still has something left in the tank with a 109-1,215-9 receiving line in 2015, but he is a candidate to be overvalued in 2016 fantasy drafts with Michael Floyd and John Brown likely to ascend. Fitzgerald will turn 33 before next season.
Jan 24 - 10:23 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 8-of-12 targets for 176 yards and the game-winning touchdown in the Cardinals' overtime win over the Packers.

Fitzgerald was held to just one catch for six yards in the first half, but he took over the game after the break. He had four catches for 77 yards in the third quarter alone, and he almost single-handedly won the game in overtime. Carson Palmer hit a wide open Fitzgerald while scrambling on the first play of the extra period, and Fitzgerald weaved his way through the Packers secondary for a 75-yard gain. He scored the game-winning touchdown on a shovel pass from five yards out two plays later. The Packers could do nothing to stop a vintage Fitzgerald after halftime, and the Cardinals offense will be almost impossible to contain in the NFC Championship game if he can keep playing at that level.
Jan 16 - 11:44 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 6-of-7 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

With two weeks to rest up for the Divisional Round, Fitzgerald ends his 12th NFL season with 109 catches for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns. The catches are a new career high, and the yards his most since 2011. Fitz has taken on more blocking duties since Michael Floyd returned to full health, but will be a candidate to lead the Cardinals in receiving for every postseason game.
Jan 3 - 8:03 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (ankle) is probable for Week 17 against Seattle.

Fitzgerald has been listed on the injury report since Week 10, but hasn’t missed any games. He’ll be a high-end WR2 if Michael Floyd (questionable, knee) sits.
Jan 1 - 6:27 PM

Larry Fitzgerald (ankle) remained "limited" on Thursday.

Fitz's status isn't in doubt. Michael Floyd's (knee) health is murkier. Fitz would return to high-end WR2 status were Floyd forced to sit against the Seahawks.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 06:58:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 4-of-5 targets for 29 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 16 win over the Packers.

Carson Palmer got all of his weapons involved in this one, finding Fitzgerald and John Brown for three- and seven-yard touchdowns, respectively, and hooking up with Michael Floyd for a 6-111-0 line. David Johnson also caught three balls for 88 yards. The three-yard score was Fitzgerald's first end-zone trip since Week 8, snapping a six-game scoreless streak. Also, on Johnson's 14-yard touchdown run, Fitzgerald sealed off the inside wall as a blocker. Despite the numbers being down the past two months, Fitzgerald has been one of the best all-around receivers in the league heading into Week 17 against the Seahawks.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 08:26:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 3-of-5 targets for 43 yards in the Cardinals' Week 15 win over the Eagles.

Fitzgerald took a backseat to Michael Floyd and John Brown. His five targets tied for his fewest of the season. It’s a huge letdown against one of the worst secondaries in the league. Fitzgerald will be more of a WR2 in Week 16 against the Packers.
