Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald suffers hamstring injury
The Arizona Cardinals didn’t have a very good Sunday. In their first road game of the season, the Cardinals were blown into pieces by the Los Angeles Rams, 34-0, as Arizona’s offense and defense looked clueless on what to do for most of the game. To make things worse for the Cardinals was the hamstring injury sustained by wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in the game, per Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic.
Cardinals announce WR Larry Fitzgerald is questionable to return because of a hamstring injury. Believe he hurt it reaching and diving for a catch in the third quarter.
Fitzgerald exited the game in the fourth quarter and did not return, though, the blowout nature of the contest played a big part in the decision to sit the future Hall of Famer wideout for the rest of the day.
Before getting forced out of the Rams game, Larry Fitzgerald had 38 receiving yards on three receptions.
Arizona’s offense had a hard time moving the chains all game long against the seemingly impenetrable Los Angeles defense. Cardinals quarterback Sam Bradford only had 90 passing yards without a touchdown on 17-of-27 completions, while running back David Johnson and Arizona’s backfield mustered just 54 rushing yards.
If anything, Arizona head coach Steve Wilks said that Fitzgerald’s injury wasn’t serious, per Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com.
Wilks said hamstring injury of Larry Fitzgerald was minor.

Still, it’s worth monitoring how Fitzgerald will do in practice ahead of Week 3’s matchup with the Chicago Bears at home.
