Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) did not participate in the team's practice on Wednesday, according to a report by Fox Sports Phoenix's Mike Jurecki. Though Fitzgerald has nursed minor injuries throughout the season, he has yet to miss any game action this year.
Fantasy impact: Perhaps the more important tidbit here is that Fitzgerald will remain a Cardinal for the rest of the season. There were some rumors that he may get traded to a contending team because his contract increases in salary to over $12 million next year.
That said, Cardinals GM Steve Klem said that the organization's goal was to have Fitzgerald retired in a Cardinals jersey.
Although Fitzgerald has been at the mercy of whoever the Cardinals have dressing at quarterback over the last few years, Carson Palmer is definitely an upgrade over the likes of Kevin Kolb and John Skelton. That's reflected in Fitzgerald's numbers.
This season, he already has five touchdowns just halfway through 2013. Last season he scored four times the entire year. The Cardinals play the Houston Texans in Week 10.
