Larry Fitzgerald hasn’t really been completely healthy yet this season.
He’s been dealing with strains to both of his hamstrings and has continued to play through despite the ailments. However, it has appeared to limit him at times in recent weeks.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians joined Alex Marvez and Bill Polian on Sirius XM NFL Radio Tuesday night and said Fitzgerald played last Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks despite being hampered by the injury.
“Larry probably played that game at 80-percent,” Arians said. “It has bothered him. He re-injured it a couple Fridays ago and he continues to try and gut it out and play.”
Fitzgerald caught just two passes for 17 yards against Seattle after having his most productive game of the season against the San Francisco 49ers five days earlier. With the Thursday night game, Fitzgerald was able to get some additional days off and Arians believes it’s helped Fitzgerald’s recovery.
“This rest has really helped him,” Arians said. “I’m hoping that Thursday, we may give him off again tomorrow. I want to see the thing healed up 100-percent.”
