Tempe, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Cardinals remain unsure as to whether they'll have Larry Fitzgerald available for Sunday's key NFC West clash with the Seattle Seahawks.
Fitzgerald sat out of practice for a third straight day on Friday as he continues to rest a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee, with the Cardinals listing the veteran wide receiver questionable for this weekend's clash with the reigning Super Bowl champion Seahawks at Qwest Field.
Arizona head coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Fitzgerald's status won't be determined until pregame warmups, though he was hopeful that the eight-time Pro Bowl honoree will be able to play.
"Practice at his age right now is overrated sometimes," Arians said. "We'll see if he can capably play on Sunday at the game."
Fitzgerald sustained the injury, which was diagnosed as a Grade 2 sprain, during the first half of last week's 14-6 Arizona win over Detroit. The 31- year-old did return to the contest but was limited to just two catches for 33 yards.
Running back Andre Ellington is expected to participate in Sunday's matchup after putting in a full practice on Friday. The Cardinals' leading rusher is dealing with injuries to his foot and hip, but was termed probable on Friday's injury report.
The Cardinals enter Sunday's showdown with an NFL-best 9-1 record and a six- game winning streak. Seattle currently stands three games back of Arizona in the division at 6-4.
