Larry Fitzgerald injury update: Cardinals WR questionable; fantasy status uncertain

Larry Fitzgerald is questionable with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry FItzgerald is officially listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks. Fitzgerald is dealing with a knee injury that forced him out of practice all week. He sustained the injury against the Detroit Lions in Week 11, catching just two passes for 4 yards in that game.

The questionable designation is supposed to denote a 50 percent chance of playing, which sounds about right for Fitzgerald. Not practicing all week isn't a huge deal when it comes to him being ready to execute the game plan -- he's a veteran, after all -- but it definitely brings his status into doubt. It sounds like he'll be a game-time decision.

Fantasy Impact: Fitzgerald has caught 46 passes for 658 yards and two touchdowns this season, with some of his best games having come in recent weeks. The Cardinals will need him in action against the Seahawks on Sunday. Unfortunately, that's an afternoon game, so it will be difficult for fantasy owners to wait and see with Fitzgerald. It may be worth sitting him due to the injury and the tough matchup ahead.
