The week of practice is over for both the Arizona Cardinals and the Seattle Seahawks and the injury reports are out with the game status of the players listed.
The Cardinals have one looming question -- will receiver Larry Fitzgerald play? He sat out of practice again on Friday, meaning he did not practice at all because of his sprained knee. He is questionable for the game and the decision will come down to Sunday morning. Fitz has a streak of 110 straight games in which he has played on the line.
Will he play? That's tough to guess. He is as tough as they come and absolutely hates sitting out, especially in divisional games.
Defensive end Ed Stinson was ruled out. That means more snaps for Tommy Kelly and Frostee Rucker. Kareem Martin could see some more snaps if he is effective. He only played six snaps against the Lions.
After that, everyone else is probable. Stinson and Fitz did not practice and everyone else was a full participant.
Seattle has gotten healthier for this game. Three players have been ruled out -- DB Marcus Burley (hamstring), OLB Kevin Louis-Pierre (shoulder) and C Max Unger (knee/ankle).
A fourth player did not practice and will be a game-time decision. That is guard James Carpenter, who went from full participation on Thursday to sitting out. Alvin Bailey would replace him in the lineup should he be unable to go on Sunday and, according to Danny Kelly of Field Gulls, Bailey has been pretty good.
DE Demarcus Dobbs (knee) is doubtful.
Running back Marshawn Lynch is going to play. He was a full participant on Friday after sitting out the first two days of practice, managing his balky back that flares up every season about this time of year. Linebacker Bobby Wagner will return to the field as well, along with guard J.R. Sweezy.
