Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is expected to play in Sunday’s crucial game against the Seattle Seahawks, despite suffering a concussion last week.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that Fitzgerald will not practice on Wednesday and said that he is still going through the NFL’s mandatory concussion protocol.

Fitzgerald was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 37-34 victory over the Tennessee Titans when he suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit while trying to field an onside kick.

Fitzgerald has 73 receptions for 823 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Cardinals (9-5), who are a game out of the final playoff spot in the NFC.

The Seahawks have already won the NFC West and can wrap up home field advantage with a victory over the Cardinals.


He is 'expected' to return at some UNKNOWN point in time, as he remains under the concussion protocol.  What we know is that if he were making progress, he would be on the field at least on a limited basis.  So, nothing positive to report is this story. 


Scooby needs to have his high school editor check his work. Seattle has not yet won the NFC West.
