TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Ask Larry Fitzgerald how he feels and he says, "Good enough to go."
Not "great," not "good as ever." Just "good enough to go."
Fitzgerald has been bothered by a sore hamstring since the second week of the season, and Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says that, more than anything, is the reason the star wide receiver has not been as productive as fans have come to expect.
Because Arizona hasn't played since last Thursday night against Seattle, Arians hopes the extra time off will make Fitzgerald a bit more like his old self when the Cardinals take the field at home against the Falcons on Sunday.
Fitzgerald said after Thursday's practice that he felt better.
"Am I where I want to be? No," he said. "But I'm better than I was, and that's progress. So I'm feeling good enough to go and play at a good level, and that's what I'm working for every day."
That Fitzgerald would even acknowledge the injury publicly is unusual. He takes great pride in playing every game, no...
