NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Fitzgerald suffered a minor MCL sprain, according to a source who has spoken to the pass-catcher. Coach Bruce Arians later elaborated on the injury, telling the Cardinals' official website that the receiver has a Grade 2 MCL sprain but still expects to playnext week at the Seattle Seahawks.
"Larry came back after he got dinged up and made that huge third-down catch to ice the game," general manager Steve Keim told KTAR-FM on Monday, via ESPN.com. "We'll find a little bit more out this morning."
The timing of the injury is unfortunate, as Fitzgerald had been playing better over the past month than any time since the 2011 season.
Here's who else is on the mend for Monday:
Smith added that running back Antone Smith has been ruled out for the season with a broken leg and will go on injured reserve.
