Fitzgerald, who passed Terrell Owens to move into sixth on the NFL’s all-time receptions list during Sunday’s 23-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, left the field late in the second quarter after taking a hit from cornerback Jimmie Ward that upended him and caused him to land on his neck. Fitzgerald returned later in the game and told Ward he thought he tore something.
“I’ve been better,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m good enough to go. This is [Week 10] in the National Football League. Everybody is dealing with something. You tape it up. We have the best trainer in the National Football League in Tom Reed. He’ll have me ready for Sunday.”
The future Hall of Fame wideout, who was targeted 18 times -- his most since Week 17 of 2011 and tied for the most by a receiver this season -- was “sore” walking out of University of Phoenix Stadium. It sounds like he'll be OK for Week 11 but we can't always trust what players say so it's worth watching this week.
