Larry Fitzgerald, WR for the Cardinals who wasn’t able to hold practice for the third time in a row due to a sprained left knee, is a game-time call for the team’s meeting with the Seahawks on Sunday, and sportsbooks software services know that many fans out there are seriously hoping to see the player feature in the game, considering what a key part he is to the team.
Coach Bruce Arians announced this on Friday. Last Sunday, Fitzgerald, who was put on the questionable list, suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain when the Cardinals took on the Lions.
“Practice at his age right now is overrated sometimes,” said Arians. “Sometimes it can be good for you. But we’ll see if he can capably play on Sunday at the game.”
The coach said that a key factor in the 31-year-old’s return to action will be his ability to “play at a certain level and not hurting us and being able to help us.” The 9-1 record that the Cardinals have tops by three meetings the NFC West over the Seahawks and 49ers.
The coach said that If Fitzgerald isn’t able to feature in the matchup, the combo of Ted Ginn, John Brown, and Jaron Brown will fill the role that the player has, and many fans wonder how they’ll do in his place. They do know that John Brown is the Cardinals’ second top WR, and is also the player to lead the team with 5 TD’s. For 111 yards, Ginn was able to record seven catches, and six passes thrown for 76 yards were caught by Jaron Brown.
“The other guys have had a real good week of practice, and they’re more than capable of picking up for him,” he said.
The last time that the player didn’t feature in a game was in 2007 – in Week 13. Ever since then, he was able to play in 110 games in a row, and sportsbooks software services can see that he currently has a winning run which is the second-longest for active WR’s. With 46 catches made for 658 yards, the player is the top receiver that the team has.
“Knowing the warrior that he is, he’s played a lot of times he probably shouldn’t have just because he’s going to do it for his teammates,” Arians said. “And that mentality would be the same this Sunday, I’m sure.”
