Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has a minor MCL issue, coach Bruce Arians told reporters after Friday’s preseason game against the Chargers. Fitzgerald played in the Week 1 preseason game against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say the injury is not serious, although there were no other details. Fitzgerald has 22 days until the regular-season opener against the Patriots. But he should be good to go come Week 1, at least according to the story.

Larry Fitzgerald could still walk away from contract

The news that both Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald received one-year extensions was certainly noteworthy, especially when it comes to Fitzgerald.

Yes, Fitz could still decide to walk away after the season and retire. But I don’t think that’s likely now that he’s agreed to another year. No longer will he be a free agent, and I just don’t see him choosing to walk away. I could be wrong — and if the Cardinals were to win a Super Bowl, I’d guess the temptation would be there — but if Fitz comes anywhere close to posting similar numbers as last year while the team can win, I’d guess he fulfills the 2017 portion of his deal.

— As for Palmer, Bruce Arians was blunt: “I don’t think anything changes other than he’s got another year.” Palmer was going to be around.

— Kent Somers reported the move doesn’t have an impact on the salary cap. Which again would revert back to the roster certainty the Cards get out of these moves as a reason to do them.

Fantasy Impact:

As we stated yesterday, what it does do with both is create a roster certainty for next season, important on a team that still has a number of key free agents-to-be and seems to be at its peak in terms of challenging for a Super Bowl. Michael Floyd will be a free agent and figures to command big dollars. If the Cardinals lose him, at least they know they (probably) still have Fitz to anchor the receiving corps.

Cards extend Larry Fitzgerald, Carson Palmer

Cardinals gave 1-year extensions to Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald, tying QB to AZ through 2018 and WR through 2017, sources tell ESPN.

Fantasy Impact:

Fitz and Palmer had a great connection last year and Fitz had a rebirth of sorts after a couple of down years over the last three seasons with lesser QB play. The team obviously sees a window of opportunity here to make a run at a Super Bowl.

Larry Fitzgerald isn't ready to hang it up just yet.

The Arizona Cardinals wide receiver told ESPN NFL Insider Josina Anderson that his career could continue "for a while."

Fantasy Impact:

Fitzgerald, 32, is slated to be one of 26 unrestricted free agents on the Cardinals after the season. He told Anderson he has not asked for an extension. Fitzgerald is heading into in his 13th season and is coming off a career-high 109 catches and his first 1,000-yard season since 2011.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 17. Fitzgerald was listed as probable with an ankle injury for six consecutive weeks, but wasn’t on the injury report at all last week. We expect him to play through the ankle injury in a meaningful game for the Cardinals.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (ankle, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 15. After a blistering hot start, Fitzgerald has cooled off a bit in the last three weeks with 23 catches for 162 yards and no touchdowns. In PPR formats, that’s pretty solid production, but owners in standard leagues are looking for more. He has a history of torching the Eagles, posting 7-160-1 in 2014, 5-72-1 in 2013 and 9-114-1 in 2012. He’s a good start against Philadelphia and their #28 WR aFPA.

TNF Injury Report: Vikings vs. Cardinals

NFL Communications - [Full Article]

Minnesota Vikings

OUT
LB Anthony Barr (groin, hand), DT Linval Joseph (foot), S Andrew Sendejo (knee), S Harrison Smith (knee, hamstring), LB Brandon Watts (rib)

QUESTIONABLE
S Robert Blanton (knee)

PROBABLE
DE Scott Crichton (ankle)

QUESTIONABLE
S Tony Jefferson (hamstring), DT Cory Redding (ankle)

PROBABLE
WR John Brown (hamstring), WR Larry Fitzgerald (ankle), WR Michael Floyd (hamstring), S Rashad Johnson (ankle), LS Mike Leach (knee), RB Stepfan Taylor (shoulder)

Fantasy Impact:

The Vikings will be missing four starters on defense, so dial up David Johnson and the rest of the Arizona starters. John Brown and Michael Floyd can be used as WR2/WR3 types given the probable tags. They should be getting close to full health. With Stepfan Taylor in, Kerwynn Williams is a bit less appealing as a Sneaky Start, but he may have earned 5-10 touches with a big game last week against the Rams.
