Larry Fitzgerald suffers concussion

fitzgerald AP

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald suffered a concussion in Sunday’s win over the Titans.

Fitzgerald suffered the concussion when he was hit while trying to recover the Titans’ onside kick with 52 seconds left in the fourth quarter, ESPN reports. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians declined to provide Fitzgerald’s status immediately after the game.

We’ll wait and see,” Arians said. “I did not like losing the onside kick. Great kick. Larry had his hands on it and then obviously took a heck of a blow.”

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that Fitzgerald did not feel well after the game. He will have to go through the league’s concussion protocol before he can be cleared to play again.

    doesnt matter, cards are not good enough make playoff.

    - 49ers are wildcard lock, because they will beat Falcons ant its enough.
    - Panthers are good enough make 1 more win.
    - Cards with or without Larry in Seattle … it is score difference between 0:30 (without) or 7:30 (with him).

    Helmet to head hit and no flag by the “home” town” referees. Ridiculous.

    Playoffs or not, would be nice to go out and beat Seattle @Seattle and give San Fran hell @ home. The rest is out of their control.

    Another example of the terrible refereeing by Tennessee and despite their best efforts, the Cards won any way! High cost to pay and hopefully that player who hit Fitz with the helmet-to-helmet will be fined by the league. This season has been ridiculous with an inordinate number of serious injuries and record fines for stupid stuff while these kinds of hits go unpunished.

    u do not “bleed silver and black” if theres another team you also root for.

    Oh, toonloonboon, quit being such a nitpicky pain in the ass. Dude loves his Raiders but is stuck living in Zona. The Raiders are barely shown in the Bay Area let alone the rest of the 50. So he gets a fondness for the local team who’s in another conference anyway. Doesn’t mean he loves his team less…

    Yes, the refs were awful in this game, calling one sided calls all game long in favor of Tennessee.

    As for bleeding Silver and Black. That is no longer possible Raider fans as that team no longer has a pulse. A fork has been stuck in your team months ago and they are DOA until next season where frustration and the same crummy results will begin when the season begins.

    As for really being dead, we now know the Raiders could not even recognize the inherent basics of football that kids learn in Pop Warner and in high school – protect your passer so he can perform. In other words, how did you guys manage to screw up so badly when you had Carson Palmer on your team and you failed to use him correctly and give him the players he needed to complete 70% of his passes and throw for 300+ yards a game with very little interceptions now that he and his receivers have learned the Arians offense? It shows the Raiders need some real professional coaches instead of wannabes.

    #11 is a class act. A certain #88 should try to be more like him.

    Once again, the NFL refs have doubled down on their pathetic and biased performances. Even the television commentators were wondering why the same penalties called against the Cardinals were never called against the Titans. The refs kept the Titans in the game at critical times. Remember the drive that was repeatedly kept alive by penalty calls? And when Fitz gets an ELBOW in the face, no penalty is called. What a pathetic and CORRUPT bunch of men the NFL refs are.

    I didn’t see the game or the play in question but you people do realize that not every helmet to helmet hit is illegal right? This one may have been & if so I’m sure our guy will get fined. But it’s just annoying to see these comments after every game.

    And also was the refereeing really that bad? Or one sided? All I’m seeing is Zona fans complaining about the refs. I don’t find it hard to believe they were bad actually. Just wondering how one sided it really was from an objective source.

  12. titansbro says: Dec 16, 2013 11:31 AM

    I mean, let’s be honest. Why would the NFL want to keep the titans in this game? Were out of the playoffs already. Much better theater for the Cards to win & keep pushing for a playoff spot.

    I certainly hope Larry did not fly back with the team yesterday. Flying is one of the worst things you can do after sustaining head injuries like a concussion.

  14. thebirdofprey2 says: Dec 16, 2013 11:44 AM

    I don’t think the Titans are some big market where refs would being giving Fitzpatrick led team the way they have done Brady’s or Manning’s. How about just a missed call?

    I’m a Seahawks fan, and I want to see Larry Fitzgerald next week. Class Act, hard worker, extremely gifted and talented. We can respect the worthy foe, and any chance to see Larry Fitz is like a chance to watch a virtuoso in action.

    Get well and best wishes, Larry.

    Yeah the playoffs are highly unlikely… You still go out and play for your pride and that lightest chance to get in. What an idiot

    Yep. I’m the opposite, being a ‘zona/STL Card fan in the Bay Area. But I love watching the Semi-Pro football that the Raiders serve up every Sunday.

    Without their best receivers, the Cards will not have much of a chance of beating the Seahawks, but you never know. Carson Palmer is playing well, and the Raiders may be regretting their decision to let him go.
