Fitzgerald is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury on the team's injury report and was limited in practice throughout the week. He was expected to be a game-time decision, but it appears that he is on track to play once again. Fitzgerald has not missed a game since 2007.

Fantasy Spin: Fitzgerald was thought to be fantasy-relevant with a capable quarterback, but once-gleeful fantasy owners now have to deal with the injury bug putting a damper on their lineups. No word has been said on the extent Fitzgerald is expected to play, though a limited Fitzgerald is still enough to put up points in any given week. Because he has a juicy matchup versus the Lions on the horizon, Fitzgerald is still safe to stay off of the bench this week but he would be better suited for a WR2 designation than his usual WR1.
