Description: Larry Fitzgerald has given the Cardinals some financial flexibility by agreeing to a restructured deal.
Insight: Fitzgerald tweeted this information on Tuesday and the news was confirmed by the Cardinals' official website. We don't know how much cap relief Fitzgerald's new deal will provide though the eight-time Pro Bowler was originally scheduled to earn $12.75 million in 2014.

Insight: It's unknown if New England is considering another run at Fitz though he would fill a huge need for the Pats at wide receiver. Fitzgerald would make for an excellent complement to Julian Edelman on the outside. A trio of Fitzgerald, Edelman and Rob Gronkowski could be deadly. We'll see if the Patriots make a play for Fitzgerald or if they stand pat with their current group of receivers featuring Edelman, Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins, Austin Collie and Danny Amendola.

Description: Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) is officially questionable for Sunday's game, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic.
Insight: He has to pass one more test before he's cleared to play against the Seahawks. Arizona plays at 4:05 p.m. ET, but we should know if he passed before you have to set your lineup.

Description: Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald (concussion) practiced fully on Thursday, according to azcardinals.com. He'll need to pass one last test Friday before he's cleared to play in Week 16, but Fitzgerald is confident he'll pass.
Insight: "This is my first (concussion), uncharted territory for me," Fitzgerald said. "It’s a serious issue, but I want to be out there and play. I will do everything I can to protect myself and my brain, but this is football, a tough sport played by tough men. It’s my job."

Description: Cardinals coach Bruce Arians expects concussed wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald to play Sunday against Seattle. SOURCE: Kent Somers, AZCentral.com
Insight: Fitzgerald suffered the injury Sunday while defending an onside kick. He's already passed most of his concussion tests and should be able to play his usual amount of snaps in Week 16. Arizona needs a win to have any hope of making the playoffs.

Description: Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald suffered a possible concussion on Sunday after catching six balls for 49 yards.
Insight: Thus ends his four-game touchdown streak. Fitzgerald is questionable for Week 16 and will have to go through the league-required protocol. Facing the Seahawks in Seattle isn't a good matchup for anyone in Week 16.

Description: Arizona receiver Larry Fitzgerald isn't likely to be dealt before the trade deadline but ESPN's Adam Schefter wouldn't be surprised if he's traded in the offseason.
Insight: Simply put, Fitzgerald is costing the Cardinals too much money. They just can't afford to pay him the $18 million he's scheduled to earn in 2014. Once considered a fantasy superhero, Fitzgerald (32 receptions, 422 yards, 4 TD) has been plagued by injury and inconsistency the last two seasons.

Description: Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) wasn't expected to practice Wednesday but he ended up getting in a full session.
Insight: Arizona coach Bruce Arians was considering giving Fitzgerald the day off. That the receiver was able to practice in full is further proof that he is getting close to 100 percent. Arians said the star receiver was "80 percent" healthy in Thursday's game against the Seahawks but that the extra time off has "really helped" him recover. He only had two catches for 17 yards on five targets Thursday against Seattle's shutdown secondary, but he has a much better matchup in Week 8 against the Falcons and should have one of his best games of the season.

Description: Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) is probable for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.
Insight: Fitzgerald's hamstring looked healthy on his 75-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown Sunday at San Francisco, but he has a terrible matchup against Richard Sherman Thursday and can only be counted on as a WR3.
 
10/15/2013 8:26:00 PM
Description: Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) was limited again in Tuesday's practice, according to Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com.
Insight: Fitzgerald's comments Tuesday suggest he expects to play Thursday against the Seahawks. "It’s a division game against the divison leaders. You don’t make excuses." Fitzgerald's hamstring looked healthy on his 75-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown Sunday at San Francisco, but he has a terrible matchup against Richard Sherman Thursday and can only be counted on as a WR3.

Description: Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald is active for Sunday's game versus San Francisco.
Insight: He's been bothered by a hamstring injury all week. The Cardinals wideout has 24 catches for 288 yards this season, but will be hard-pressed to add to those totals Sunday against the 49ers' stout defense.

Insight: Fitzgerald's hamstring injury is in a different spot than earlier this season. He'll probably play through the injury but will struggle to put up fantasy-worthy numbers as he has in the last four weeks. The Cardinals play at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday, which will leave fantasy owners without many alternative options if he sits.
