Fitzgerald limited in practice, expects to play

BY foxsports • December 16, 2009

Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald went through a limited practice on Wednesday and says he expects to play Sunday at Detroit.

Fitzgerald bruised a bone and sprained his right knee when San Francisco's Dashon Goldson landed on his leg in the third quarter of the Cardinals' 23-9 loss to the 49ers on Monday night. Fitzgerald went to the locker room but returned for the final 3 1/2 minutes of the game.

An MRI on Tuesday determined the injury was not as serious as Fitzgerald first feared it might be. The All-Pro receiver is on a string of 37 consecutive starts for Arizona and has missed only four games in his six NFL seasons.
