Seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald dealt with an injury to his left hamstring earlier this season. Yesterday his right hammy was giving him issues after he was dealing with it during practice last week. The University of Pittsburgh product enjoyed a fine overall game with six receptions for 117 yards, including a 75-yard TD catch from quarterback Carson Palmer.
Fitzgerald broke away from the pack on that long scoring gallop but seemed to be in a some pain as he dressed after the contest.
“I wanted to go out there and give what I could to help my team win,” Fitzgerald told azcentral.com.
The Cardinals have a quick turnaround this week – they face the Seattle Seahawks in Glendale on Thursday. That's another huge game and Fitzgerald's status for that NFC West division contest is not known at this time.
Calais Campbell's injury
Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell had movement and feeling in his extremities after suffering an apparent injury to his neck late in the fourth quarter against San Francisco.
The University of Miami product was taken to a local hospital, where he was undergoing a precautionary CT scan and an MRI. Initial indications are positive according to a Red Birds spokesman. Campbell was released from a Bay Area hospital late Sunday night and has returned back home to Arizona.
“The feeling was coming back in,” head coach Bruce Arians explained. “Our prayers are with him.”
Campbell registered a half sack and four tackles against the Niners. He ranks second on the Cards with 3.5 sacks this season. Darnell Dockett leads the team with four.
