Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald on Thursday was sporting a brace on the knee he injured last weekend, according to insider Mike Jurecki. Fitz is expected to play against the Vikings on Sunday, but he won't be at 100%. That, plus a tough matchup, leaves him as just a borderline WR2 for Week 11.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) was held out of Wednesday's practice. He's expected to play against the Vikings this weekend, but we'll feel better about his fantasy outlook if he gets on the practice field Thursday and/or Friday.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians expects WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) to play this weekend in Minnesota, where he grew up. “I’d be shocked if he misses a game at home,” Arians said. Fitz hurt his knee in the 1st half of yesterday's game but returned for the 2nd and looked just fine. We'll keep an eye on him this week, but you can pencil him into Week 11 fantasy lineups for now.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald played through a knee injury in the win over the 49ers. He headed back to the locker room with trainers late in the 1st half but returned to play the entire 2nd half. Fitz finished with a big 12-133 line and didn't seem to be bothered by the knee. He told reporters afterward that he was sore and would get an MRI on Monday. We'll pass along an update when we get one, but you can tentatively count on Fitzgerald for Week 11.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has a low ankle sprain. While HC Bruce Arians said Monday that Fitz “could” practice next week, the veteran is fully expected to play following a Week 9 bye. He’s coming off a game with 10 catches (11 targets) for 74 yards.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has told people close to him that 2016 will be his final NFL season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Players change their minds all the time about retirement, so don't consider this a lock. But Fitz will turn 34 before the 2017 season kicks off. The news has no impact on his 2016 fantasy value, but dynasty owners in rebuild mode should be looking to unload Fitzgerald.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald practiced on Sunday. He sat out the 2nd preseason game with what HC Bruce Arians described as a "slight MCL" injury, but the fact that he's already back on the field is confirmation that the issue isn't serious. Fitz should be a full-go when Week 1 rolls around. His fantasy stock is unaffected.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald was held out of Friday night's preseason game with what HC Bruce Arians called a "slight MCL" injury. It's unclear which knee Fitzgerald hurt and when the injury occurred. He missed 2 games back in 2014 with a Grade 2 MCL sprain. This latest issue doesn't even sound serious if we're to believe Arians, but we'll keep a close eye on Fitzgerald going forward.

Cardinals WR Michael Floyd has 3 dislocated fingers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  He's expected to be sidelined 3-5 weeks.  The longer end of that timeline bumps right up against the season opener.  Floyd's availability and effectiveness beyond that is a question mark considering fingers are pretty darn important to WRs.  Floyd is coming off a disappointing 44th-place PPR finish, and his role in a crowded WR corps was in question heading into 2015.  This injury won't help his cause.  Meanwhile, Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown are now locked in as Arizona's top 2 WRs until Floyd returns.  Both guys are capable of playing well enough to keep Floyd 3rd on the depth chart even when he's back to 100%.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald says "it's not possible" for him to put up big numbers in his role in HC Bruce Arians' offense. "I just don’t have the opportunities down the field. I’m more inside, I move the chains a lot more. So in terms of putting up the big numbers, it will be difficult."  Fitz has averaged 11.6 and 12.4 yards per catch, respectively, in his 2 seasons under Arians.  Those are his 3rd and 4th lowest marks of his 11-year career.  We're sure Arians' system has played a part in that, but the 31-year-old Fitzgerald has also lost a step or 2.  Consider him no more than a low-upside WR3 in 2015 fantasy drafts.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals and WR Larry Fitzgerald are close to a new deal that would allow Fitz to finish his career in Arizona.  The 2 sides have been working on a contract restructure for a while.  Fitz turns 32 in August and has shown clear signs of decline the past few years.  He hasn't reached 1,000 yards since 2011 and scored a career-low 2 TDs this past season.  His 63 catches and 784 yards were his worst marks since his 2004 rookie campaign.  He still has value as a possession receiver, though, with some of the best hands in the game.  A healthy QB Carson Palmer would make Fitzgerald a low-upside WR3 in 2015 fantasy football drafts.  His return will make it tougher for WRs Michael Floyd and John Brown to break out.

Update: ProFootballTalk.com reports that this deal is done.  Fitzgerald's restructured contract saves Arizona nearly $13 million against the 2015 salary cap.  In return, Fitz will receive $11 million guaranteed in both of the next 2 years.  He'll be 34 when those guarantees run out.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. He probably won’t be at anywhere close to 100%, though. And with QB Drew Stanton struggling, Fitz is a risky WR3.

The Cardinals "believe" WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) will play against the Chiefs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  A final decision won't be made until Fitz tests out the knee in pregame warmups, though.  That means we won't know his official status until around 3 pm ET.  Assuming Fitzgerald plays, it's tough to believe he'll be at 100%.  And with QB Drew Stanton struggling lately, Fitz is a shaky WR3 for Week 14.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians deemed WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Chiefs.  Arians added that Fitz is "still not 100%."  Signs point to him suiting up on Sunday, but we probably won't know for sure until inactives are announced around 3 pm ET.  And there's a good possibility that Fitzgerald plays limited snaps and/or serves as a decoy if he's active.  He's not a recommended Week 14 fantasy starter.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday.  He'll be 3 weeks removed from a 2-4 week injury when Sunday's game against the Chiefs kicks off.  Assuming Fitzgerald plays in that one, he'll be a risk/reward WR3 vs. a tough KC pass defense.

Cardinals HC Bruce Arians thinks WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) might be able to practice on Wednesday.  He's yet to get back on the practice field since going down 15 days ago.  Consider Fitzgerald 50-50 to return for this weekend's game against the Chiefs.  Ideally, owners can wait another week beyond that before getting him back in fantasy lineups.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Falcons. That leaves John Brown and Michael Floyd as the top 2 WRs in a plus matchup. Brown is an upside WR3; Floyd is tough to trust after last week’s goose egg.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s showdown with Atlanta.  Fitz only put in a limited practice on Friday.  He looks 50/50 to play against the Falcons.  The 31-year-old will be a risky WR3 if he suits up, even against Atlanta’s leaky pass defense.  There's a chance Fitzgerald would be limited and/or serve as more than a decoy.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee) calls himself "highly likely" to play against the Falcons on Sunday.  "It's not my call, though," he added.  Fitz didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and is still waiting for medical clearance from the docs.  He'll be 2 weeks removed from a 2-4 week injury when Arizona-Atlanta kicks off on Sunday.  We'll see if he's able to practice on Friday, but Fitzgerald will be a risky fantasy play if he's active this weekend.
