The biggest star on the Cardinals has been made to sit out practice with his bothersome hamstring, because Arians is worried about his aggravating the injury before facing the high-powered New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon.
Fitzgerald will definitely be on the field against the Saints, but until then, Arians does not see the point of putting him anywhere near the field. Per the piece:
“He wants to practice; I’m not letting him,” Arians said. “I do not want him aggravating that again. We’ll take that day to day.”
Arizona is 1-1 on the season after losing to the St. Louis Rams in its season opener and then beating the Detroit Lions 25-21 at home last weekend. Fitzgerald has been finding the end zone thus far with Carson Palmer throwing the ball, scoring two times on 10 catches.
