Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald suffered a concussion near the end of regulation in last Sunday’s game against the Titans while trying to field an onside kickoff, but the feeling around the Cardinals is that he’ll be able to play against the Seahawks this weekend.
That feeling grew stronger Thursday with Fitzgerald’s return to practice. According to Darren Urban of the team’s website, Fitzgerald jumped right back in where he left off as the first drill of the day involved fielding onside kicks as part of the scout team.
Fitzgerald was joined in his return to practice by quarterback Carson Palmer, who also missed Wednesday’s practice. Palmer sprained his ankle early in the game against Tennessee, but played the entire way and coach Bruce Arians termed it a “low grade” sprain earlier this week. He’ll likely be listed as limited in practice, but is on track to play.
Tight end Rob Housler, who has a groin injury, was also limited and safety Rashad Johnson missed a second straight day of practice with a sprained ankle.
