Fitzgerald Sits Out Practice, 'Iffy' For Seahawks

Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald did not practice Wednesday and coach Bruce Arians said the star wide receiver is "iffy" for Sunday's game at Seattle. The seven-time Pro Bowl receiver has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee. He was hurt late in the first half of Sunday's 14-6 victory over Detroit. He went to the locker room but came back and made a critical 11-yard reception for a first down that sealed the victory. Arians said the soreness in the knee was a little worse than he thought it would be. The Cardinals' career leader in virtually every receiving category, Fitzgerald leads the team this season in receptions (46) and yards receiving (658). He has started 71 consecutive games, not missing a contest since Dec. 2, 2007. TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) – November 20, 2014
