A hamstring injury has forced Larry Fitzgerald to sit out several practices in recent weeks, but the Cardinals No. 1 receiver should be out on the field for Sunday's game against the Saints. Fitzgerald said he plans to play, according to Ken Somers, who spoke with the wideout Sunday morning.
Fitzgerald was a limited participant at practice on Friday. While he's been questionable throughout the week, he continued to maintain the belief that he would play in Week 3.

He should have more of an impact facing the Saints, a defense that has been surprisingly stingy against the pass through two games. Unless you have one of the top receivers in the league to replace Fitzgerald, it's hard to justify sitting him.
