Fitzgerald had seven receptions (on a team-high 12 targets) for 60 yards during Sunday's 33-18 loss in Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

The target count exceeds Fitzgerald's previous season high -- 10 in both of the first two games -- but he posted a campaign-worst in yards and didn't reach the end zone, after three combined touchdowns entering Sunday's outing. Like the rest of the Cardinals' receivers, chemistry with quarterback Carson Palmer was less than stellar, as the first five drives doubled as three-and-outs and the final four were dashed with Palmer interceptions. The faux pas aside, Fitzgerald will continue to be a favorite of Palmer in any situation, with double-digit looks still the weekly norm in the wideout's 13th NFL season.

Fitzgerald (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

EDGE Analysis

Logging an unhindered practice a day earlier than last week, Fitzgerald clearly fit in a maintenance day Wednesday. As his preseason knee injury recedes further in the rearview mirror, he's likely drawing closer to a week in which he won't be present on the injury report. In any case, another significant target count should be in store Sunday against the Bills' bottom-tier pass defense.

Fitzgerald (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

EDGE Analysis

After suffering an MCL sprain in training camp, Fitzgerald may be flagged with an injury designation for a decent portion of the season, or at least until the issue diminishes enough to fit in every drill. On the other hand, the veteran wideout's placement on the injury report may be a bit of gamesmanship by head coach Bruce Arians. Ringing in at 33 years old, Fitzgerald still cannot be discounted by opponents, as evidenced by 13 receptions (on 20 targets) for 158 yards and three touchdowns in two games to date.

Fitzgerald reached the end zone during a six-catch, 81-yard performance Sunday against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Week 1 was replete with Fitzgerald classics, including two touchdowns and three clutch receptions on the Cardinals' ill-fated final drive that ended with a missed Chandler Catanzaro field goal. On Sunday, Fitzgerald was the first of three Cards to hit paydirt for the 101st touchdown of his Hall of Fame-worthy career. With a catch percentage of 67 percent through an eighth of the season, he's a bit shy of the 75 percent posted in 2015, but considering the volume afforded him in head coach Bruce Arians' offense, sustaining such a pace puts him in line for his sixth 1,000-yard campaign.

Fitzgerald (knee) is listed as active Sunday versus the Buccaneers, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a preseason dominated by a slight MCL sprain, Fitzgerald didn't appear on the Cardinals' Week 1 injury report, but game action last Sunday seemingly forced the team's hand. Logging back-to-back limited practices to start the week, a full session followed Friday, which cleared the way for active status Sunday. Look for the veteran wideout to receive the majority of the offensive snaps yet again.

Fitzgerald (knee) returned to a full practice Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports.

EDGE Analysis

Following back-to-back days of limited participation, Fitzgerald answered any questions regarding his Week 2 status. He'll square off with a shaky Tampa Bay secondary, after catching eight passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns (on 10 targets) in a Week 1 loss to the Patriots. He played all but two of Arizona's offensive snaps in the opener.

Fitzgerald (knee) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald was a non-participant in the final three preseason tilts due to a slight MCL sprain, yet he was able to avoid the injury report in Week 1. After picking up all but two of the Cardinals' offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, he was held out of a portion of drills to kick off practice this week. The development may be a precautionary measure to keep the veteran wideout fresh in his 13th NFL campaign, but his progress throughout the week will give a good indication of his current level of health.

Fitzgerald caught eight passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns on 10 targets in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

In addition to catching the 99th and 100th touchdown passes of his career, Fitzgerald hauled in three balls for 46 yards on Arizona's final drive, only to watch Chandler Catanzaro miss the go-ahead field goal. While not lacking for other weapons, the Cardinals offense largely revolved around Fitzgerald and David Johnson on Sunday, as the rest of the team's talented receiving corps was held in check. Michael Floyd and John Brown should fare better in Week 2 against Tampa Bay, but the 33-year-old Fitzgerald is still the odds-on favorite to lead team in targets.

Fitzgerald (knee) wasn't listed on the Cardinals' injury report Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The sideline was Fitzgerald's domain for the last three preseason games as he tended to an MCL sprain, but an uninhibited return to drills this week signifies that the injury is behind him. Although Fitzgerald remains the No. 1 wideout in Carson Palmer's mind, Michael Floyd and John Brown also must be targeted, which places a cap on the trio's respective output.

Fitzgerald (knee) is not slated to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Texans, Darren Urban of AZcardinals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzgerald, who has been dealing with a minor MCL sprain, was actually on the field during early warmups with his helmet on, catching passes. Per the report, the veteran wideout "was moving around fine," with the decision to hold him out of action Sunday presumably precautionary in nature.
