Last weekend, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald suffered the first concussion of his career. The injury led to some concerns about his availability for this week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fitzgerald has said all along that he had planned to play on Sunday and that he was progressing quickly, so there was plenty of reason for the Cardinals and their fans to be optimistic.

On Sunday morning, that was confirmed with the report that Fitzgerald is expected to suit up for Arizona when they take the field in Seattle. Quarterback Carson Palmer is also expected to play.

From Adam Schefter of ESPN:

Going up against the Seahawks tough secondary is never an easy task, but that challenge would have increased even more without the team’s top wideout on the field.

Arizona is hanging on to playoff hopes, so they will look to pull off the upset in Week 16 and do everything in their power to ensure they are one of the final six teams standing in the NFC.
