Larry Fitzgerald injury: Cardinals WR hurts hamstring, return questionable

Christian Petersen

Larry Fitzgerald left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury and is questionable to return.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions with a hamstring. His return is questionable.

Fitzgerald has been dealing with a hamstring issue for most of the week. He was limited in practice and ended up being a game time decision. He appears to have aggravated the injury and did not come back in the second half. Before leaving the game, Fitzgerald had two catches for 33 yards.

Fitzgerald was set for a career revival with Carson Palmer throwing to him. He had two touchdowns in last week's opener, already halfway to his 2012 total of four. Unfortauntely, this injury throws a wrench into his 2013 season. Hamstring injuries tend to linger and take a long time to recover from. Fitzgerald's Week 3 status may be in doubt now. The Cardinals are going ahead with Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts as the main starters at wideout.
