NEW ORLEANS - JANUARY 16: Larry Fitzgerald #11 of the Arizona Cardinals looks on against the New Orleans Saints during the NFC Divisional Playoff Game at Louisana Superdome on January 16, 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints won 45-14. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week Three of the 2012 NFL season.

The All-Pro wideput caught nine passes for 114 yards and a touchdown in Arizona's 27-6 rout of the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday in Glendale. Fitzgerald also captured NFC Player of the Week honors last November following the Cardinals' win in Philadelphia.

The 3-0 Cardinals continue to garner honors. Last week, defensive end Calais Campbell was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his stellar performance against New England.

Early Line

The Red Birds have been installed as seven-point favorites over the visiting Dolphins Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.

All-Time Series

Miami leads the all-time series, 8-2, although the Cardinals have captured the last two contests. This will just be Miami's third visit to the desert.

Injury Update

Darnell Dockett is still recovering from his strained right hamstring and his status for Sunday's game is up in the air at this time.

John Skelton is making progress from his low ankle sprain and he may be healthy enough to backup Kevin Kolb on Sunday. Kolb is too hot not to start at this point even if Skelton was 100 percent healthy.

Todd Heap did not play against the Eagles due to a sprained knee but he should be able to go against the Dolphins. Rob Housler (two catches for 18 yards against the Eagles) will start again if Heap isn't cleared to play.

Adrian Wilson also did not play on Sunday due to a sprained ankle. At this time, he is expected to suit up against Miami. If he can't play, Rashad Johnson and James Sanders can fill in well. Both players participated in 32 plays from scrimmage against the Eagles. Sanders, of course, was one of the big stars in last Sunday's rout of Philadelphia with his 93-yard fumble return for a touchdown.
