A bad night could have been disaster after Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald left the game with a right knee sprain, after Niner defensive back Michael Lewis fell on Fitzgerald’s lower leg and bent it hard into the upper leg.
“When he hurt it, we thought it was a big scare,” Whisenhunt said. “We thought it could be something long term. But it was encouraging to see him come back.”
Fitzgerald will likely undergo an MRI Tuesday to further assess the problem, although he looked OK after returning to the game.
