Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI 17 Hrs

Fitzgerald said Thursday that he's progressing through his sprained MCL and hopes to take the field Sunday in Atlanta, but such a decision is up to the training staff, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

During Thursday's practice, Fitzgerald worked on the side with trainers, but we're still awaiting an appearance on the field, which would indicate active status is possible. While his status for Sunday's game in Atlanta remains up in the air, Friday's injury report could clarify his availability, one way or the other.

Fitzgerald (knee) worked on the side during the open portion of Thursday's practice, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

As he recovers from a Grade 2 MCL sprain, Fitzgerald will be contained to work with the Cardinals' training staff. There's no telling when he'll receive clearance to take part in drills, but Friday's injury report will set the tone for his Week 13 availability, or lack thereof.

Fitzgerald (knee) won't practice Wednesday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Since sustaining an MCL sprain in Week 11, Fitzgerald has been absent from all on-field activity, with no end in sight. Until he practices in some capacity, it's difficult to trust that he can be of use on game day. Nevertheless, continue to monitor his status as the week rolls on in order to learn if active status Sunday in Atlanta is a possibility.

Coach Bruce Arians noted that if the Cardinals had practiced Monday, Fitzgerald (knee) wouldn't have participated, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

That's not especially surprising, given that Fitzgerald was inactive for Sunday's game against Seattle after being considered a game-time decision in advance of the contest. In any case, the wideout's status for this coming weekend's game against the Falcons remains cloudy at this stage, though a return to practice at any point later this week could provide some optimism with regard to his potential Week 13 playing prospects.

Fitzgerald (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game in Seattle, the Cardinals' official site reports.

After failing to practice all week due to the sprained MCL in his left knee, Fitzgerald's absence is no surprise. He last missed a game on Dec. 2, 2007, a span of 110 contests, and it's unknown when he'll be able to begin a new one. In any case, Michael Floyd and John Brown are slated to start at wide receiver.

A source tells's Ian Rapoport that Fitzgerald (MCL sprain) will not play Sunday against the Seahawks.

Rapoport reported earlier in the day that Fitzgerald is pushing hard to play, but his availability has always seemed iffy at best. We'll get official confirmation once the Cardinals release their inactives, but look for Michael Floyd and John Brown to start at receiver with Fitzgerald out.

Per, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport indicated that while Fitzgerald (MCL sprain, questionable) is pushing hard to play, "it would take a miracle" for the receiver to suit up for Sunday's 4:05 ET game against Seattle.

Fitzgerald is still viewed as a game-time decision for the contest, so we'll track his status in advance of Sunday's kickoff, but at this stage, barring a surprising turnaround, it appears as though the Cardinals' Week 12 wideout corps is likely to be headed by Michael Floyd and John Brown.

Fitzgerald (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Seattle, reports.

Fitzgerald will be a game-time decision for the 4:05 eastern time kickoff, and barring a new report on Fitzgerald's status prior to the first wave of kickoffs at 1:00 eastern, any Fitzgerald owners following his status up to game-time would ideally have a secondary option in mind in case he's unavailable when the second wave of games start. John Brown and Michael Floyd would likely be the primary Cardinals to pick up the slack if Fitzgerald sits.

Fitzgerald (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Seattle after sitting out Friday's practice.

Fitzgerald didn't practice at all this week and, while he's one of the rare players capable of playing without practice, it's hard to be optimistic about both his chances of playing Sunday and producing if he does manage to play. If Fitzgerald does sit, it would probably mean a few more targets for John Brown and Michael Floyd.

Fitzgerald (knee) was working on the side and not practicing during the portion of Friday's practice open to the media.

Fitzgerald seems headed for a questionable designation this week, leading to a game-time decision on his status for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. If that is indeed the case, you'll need to make sure you have a replacement option available, keeping in mind that the Cardinals have a 4:05 ET kickoff Sunday.
