With the Titans desperate to recover an onside kick in order to try to force overtime, the ball coming off Rob Bironas' foot headed straight for Cardinals receiver (and hands team member) Larry Fitzgerald with 52 seconds to play.

While Fitzgerald got his hands on the ball, he was popped hard by Titans running back Jackie Battle and lost it, leading to a Tennessee recovery, an eventual touchdown and an overtime period that Arizona would go on to win.

But bad news for Fitzgerald, because he suffered a concussion on the special teams play, according to ESPN.com. His father, though, says Fitzgerald is fine.

"I did not like losing the onside kick," Arians said after the game. "Great kick. Larry had his hands on it and then obviously took a heck of a blow."

Obviously, Fitzgerald's progress is worth keeping your eye on as the Cardinals continue to battle for a playoff spot in the final two weeks. On another note, quarterback Carson Palmer suffered an ankle sprain during the contest but ended up finishing the game.
