Cards cautious with Fitzgerald

August 17, 2010


The Arizona Cardinals are promising to proceed with all caution in their treatment of Larry Fitzgerald’s sprained right knee.

That could mean the four-time Pro Bowl receiver won’t play again this preseason.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that while the team will take a conservative approach, he fully expects Fitzgerald to be back for the season opener at St. Louis on Sept. 12.
