Larry Fitzgerald Injury: Updates on Cardinals WR's Hamstring
As of Wed, Nov. 6 Fitzgerald was no longer on the injury report.
UPDATE: Wednesday, Oct. 16
Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com passes along a statement from Larry Fitzgerald discussing his hamstring injury:
Fitzgerald shrugged off concerns that he was trying to play on a short week battling his hamstring problem. â€śIâ€™m fine,â€ť Fitzgerald said. â€śItâ€™s a division game against the division leaders. You donâ€™t make excuses. You just go out and play ball.â€ť
ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen originally reported that Fitzgerald could very well miss the marquee divisional contest with a hamstring injury:
Nothing official on WR Larry Fitzgerald's status until later, but some bad vibes about his status with Cardinals playing again Thursday.â€” Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 13, 2013
Definitely don't sense much optimism on Larry Fitzgerald and his hamstring issues for 49ers gameâ€” Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) October 13, 2013
Both of ESPN's finest hint at key elements factoring into whether Fitzgerald will take the field on Sunday.
Additionally, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer called Fitzgerald's chances of playing "50-50 at best":
The Cardinals and Niners are both 3-2 and are sixth and fifth respectively in the NFC at the moment, per ESPN.com.
A Thursday night Week 7 contest looms against the division-leading Seattle Seahawks, a contest for which the Cardinals would love, and need, to have Fitzgerald 100 percent fresh.
Mortensen references Fitzgerald's hamstring issuesâ€”a nod to the tribulations the All-Pro has been dealing with throughout the 2013 season.
Fitzgerald's current hamstring injury is in a different spot than the last time he hurt it, per Kent Somers of AZCentral.com.
Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper points out that Fitzgerald has been forced out of one game and was not his typical dynamic self in another because of the nagging hamstring.
Last year's first-round draft choice Michael Floyd, fellow receiver Andre Roberts and athletic tight end Rob Housler will have to pick up the slack if quarterback Carson Palmer is to have any chance at success against the Niners' vaunted defense.
