One big concern for the Arizona Cardinals has been the nagging hamstring that has troubled Larry Fitzgerald. Head coach Bruce Arians was on Sirius XM NFL as he does every Tuesday and he was asked about the health of his start wide receiver.
"Larry probably played that game at 80 percent," said Arians, referring to the Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Arians noted that Fitz aggravated it "a couple of Fridays ago" and that "the rest has really helped him." He said that he might hold Fitz out of practice on Wednesday to get it better.
"I want that to heal completely," he said.
He is not the only one. Fitz has insisted on playing if he can, as he does not want to let his team down. Provided he does not reaggravate it on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, having a long week and then a bye week should do the trick. Then he will hopefully be able to make impactful plays like we are used to seeing him do.
