Fitzgerald (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. If Fitzgerald replicates last week's practice schedule, he'll follow Wednesday's cap in reps with a full showing Thursday, which will pave the way for active status in Week 12 at San Francisco. With a 90-yard effort this past Sunday against the Bengals, he's reached that threshold in six of 10 games this season and will look to do it again against a 49ers pass defense that ranks 27th in the NFL.
Fitzgerald (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Bengals, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports. The Cardinals entered Sunday's game with questions surrounding the availability of wideouts Michael Floyd (hamstring) and John Brown (hamstring), but no such concerns enveloped Fitzgerald. With Floyd sidelined and Brown suiting up, Fitzgerald's relative health likely makes him the most reliable option of the active duo, per usual.
Fitzgerald (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, ESPN's Josh Weinfuss reports. Fitzgerald logged full practices Thursday and Friday, leaving little question as to his Sunday availability. He should see plenty of targets with both John Brown (hamstring) and Michael Floyd (hamstring) uncertain to play, but the future Hall of Famer will have to deal with a tough matchup against Bengals cornerback Leon Hall in the slot. Of course, the matchup looks a whole lot tougher from Hall's side of the line, with Fitzgerald on pace for a 116-1,486-12 receiving line.
Fitzgerald (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Fitzgerald has rebounded from a limited showing Wednesday, putting him on track to play on Sunday night against the Bengals. Fellow wideout John Brown (hamstring) is a step behind him, going from DNP to limited after two practices this week, but Michael Floyd's hamstring injury didn't afford an appearance Wednesday or Thursday. If current conditions extend into game day, Fitzgerald seems poised for a significant target count, which could yield fruit versus a Cincinnati defense that has surrendered eight touchdowns to wideouts this season.
Fitzgerald (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Outside of a quiet outing in Week 7 against the Ravens -- three receptions for 39 yards -- Fitzgerald has been match-up proof, culminating in a season-high 10 catches for 130 yards Sunday at Seattle. Considering he was able to practice, unlike fellow wideouts Michael Floyd (hamstring) and John Brown (hamstring), Fitzgerald is likely getting eased into practice. As the week draws to a close, expect head coach Bruce Arians to provide clarification on the Cardinals' Top 3 receivers.
