Larry Fitzgerald Suffers Lung Injury; Spitting Up Blood On Sideline
The Cardinals had nothing to play for except pride.
There was no reason for Larry Fitzgerald to be out there playing with a lung injury, but when you are a leader, you lead by example no matter the score and no matter the circumstance.
Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald suffered a lung injury and was spitting up blood on the sidelines during Sunday’s 23-20 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks, Fitzgerald’s father, Larry Fitzgerald Sr, reports. The younger Fitzgerald will undergo an MRI on Monday. After catching one pass for one yard in the first half, Fitzgerald caught eight passes for 148 yards after the break, including three receptions for 36 yards on the Cardinals’ game-winning drive in overtime. Fitzgerald had a 26-yard catch-and-run on a 3rd-and-3 play that got the team into Seahawks’ territory. Six plays later, Fitzgerald made a sliding, one-handed catch to move the Cardinals inside the Seahawks’ 25-yard line.
Kevin Kolb isn’t the answer and I am not sure if Skelton is either.
As I stated on Twitter the Cardinals need to see if there is anyway they can move up in the draft to get Robert Griffin III, you don’t want to waste Fitzgerald prime years without a franchise QB.
