WR Fitzgerald Expects to Play Sunday at Detroit

Larry Fitzgerald has missed just four games in his six NFL seasons. He doesn’t expect to make it five this weekend.

The All-Pro receiver for the Cardinals went through a limited practice on Wednesday and expressed confidence he will be in the lineup Sunday at Detroit.

Fitzgerald bruised a bone and sprained his right knee when San Francisco’s Dashon Goldson landed on his leg in the third quarter of the Cardinals’ 23-9 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

“It was scary,” Fitzgerald said. “I felt the pop in there. Immediately when you feel that you just hope for the best.”

Fitzgerald was helped off the field and went to the locker room, where he said he “got a good tape job and a t-shot,” referring to a painkilling injection.

He returned for the final 3 1/2 minutes of the game.

An MRI on Tuesday determined the injury was not as serious as Fitzgerald first feared it might be.

“We don’t like to talk about the injury stuff,” he said. “I’m just fortunate it wasn’t any worse than it is and I’ll be able to go out there and keep playing. … It’s only been two days, so by tomorrow and Friday I think I’ll be feeling real good.”
