Fitzgerald's MRI is negative

As expected, the inside of the right knee of Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is fine.

An MRI conducted today on Fitzgerald’s knee was negative, which as always in matters of this nature is positive.

“He had an MRI today that revealed a bone contusion and right knee
sprain
,” the Cardinals said. “However the knee is stable and there isn’t any more significant
damage.  He’ll be evaluated as the week progresses.”

The term “right knee sprain” is incredibly broad.  There are many types and degrees of knee sprains. 

For now, though, it appears that Fitzgerald won’t miss Sunday’s game at Detroit.

Fitzgerald injured the knee while falling to the ground after attempting to catch a third-quarter pass from Kurt Warner.

    Great news! I hope Fitzgerald heals quickly & can return soon. That guy is the best receiver in the league, and a class act.

    Um, the fact that there is bone contusion and sprain means that the knee isn’t “fine.”

    Over the years the 49ers have developed a blueprint on how to stop Fitz and Bolden. When they play the Niners they only appear on Milk Cartons.

    Come on, when’s Fitzgerald going to catch his share of the Madden Curse?

    Fitz may be fine, but he has other things to worry about. For one, the guy looks like Jar Jar Binks!

    Why hurry up and return to play the Lions? Just to increase his stats?

    Good to hear he’s okay.
    But I wish he would sit this one out, as he is on my opponents team this week in our FF play-offs.

    Fitz really dodged a bullet on that one. Maybe he should talk to Plaxico.
