Larry Fitzgerald appears unlikely to play today

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald looks like a long shot to play in today’s must-win game against the Rams.

The Cardinals are not optimistic that Fitzgerald can play through his groin injury, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Fitzgerald may be able to surprise the team and tough it out, but the Cardinals aren’t counting on him.

With Christian Kirk out after being placed on the league’s COVID-19 reserve list, the Cardinals are down two of their top three receivers today.

Cardinals running back Chase Edmonds, an important part of the passing game as well, is questionable with a hip injury. If Edmonds and Fitzgerald are both out, Kyler Murray would be down three of his top four receivers. DeAndre Hopkins would be counted on to get a lot of passes thrown his way in that scenario.

The Cardinals are in the playoffs if they beat the Rams today. They’re out of the playoffs if they lose.

  1. Considering the Rams are starting a QB that has never played one down in the NFL, I do not think that missing Fitzgerald matters.

  2. Larry Fitzgerald is a Hall Of Fame QB and a class act. When he hangs up his cleats for the last time, the NFL won’t be as good of a league.
    I’m a Packers fan, but I loved watching Larry Fitzgerald play all these years. If he retires, I wish him all the best.

  3. I love love love LARRY! Having watched every game of his it’s time to hang it up. His speed is gone. He’s been covered all year by teams 3rd and 4th CB and he can’t separate. He still got the hands, but he’s just too slow at this point. But, the reality is the Cards have thrown $10 million dollars at him the last three years….and if you think he’s going to turn that down….nope. Add to it he wants more of Rices records…he’ll be back.
