"I got my estate planning done again, revised my will. I did a lot of stuff," he told reporters Thursday. "When you're sitting home and watching how many people are dying every day from it, you really reevaluate things."
He also discussed his symptoms from the coronavirus:
Fitzgerald's absences were rare for one of the most durable players of generation.
The 37-year-old is in his 17th year in the NFL and only missed six regular-season games entering this season. He hadn't missed a single game since 2014 until the COVID-19 diagnosis.
Arizona struggled without him, falling to 6-6 after a hot start to the season.
Though Fitzgerald has seen his numbers decline in recent years, he still has helped the offense with 43 catches for 336 yards in 10 games. Only DeAndre Hopkins has more receptions for the Cardinals this year, while the veteran's 20 first-down catches remain valuable.
Fitzgerald currently ranks second in NFL history in both career receptions (1,421) and receiving yards (17,419) and is sixth in receiving touchdowns (120).
