The Cardinals receiver appears to be on track to return

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is in the middle of having to deal with the NFL's concussion protocol, after suffering a head injury in the game on Sunday vs. the Tennessee Titans. After passing initial tests to allow him to go home, he must now continue to show progress throughout the week as they add activity for him.

Head coach Bruce Arians was on SiriusXM NFL with Alex Marvez on Tuesday as he typically does and he gave an update on his starting receiver.

"He will not practice (Wednesday)," he told Marvez. "He still has to pass the protocol and we're waiting to make sure. They're not going to take any chances with him right now."

He did make sure to say that he believes that he will play against the Seahawks on Sunday. "He'll be fine I think for game time, but he still has to pass the second part to get activity and all that stuff," he explained.

This is good news for fans that feared that he would be unavailable for the team's biggest game of the season thus far. There are certainly no guarantees, but it looks like Fitz should be able to give it a go on Sunday, provided he has no setbacks.

Listen to the whole interview that Arians gave, talking about the game on Sunday, Fitz and a story about stepping on a Terrible Towel.
