07:23 AM ET 12.17 | When it comes to injuries, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians had a lot to say Monday, with perhaps his biggest star leading the way. [Arians] said wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald still has to go through a battery of tests this week before it can be determined whether he will be available for Sunday's game at Seattle. ... The real concern now is for Fitzgerald, who has 34 catches for 329 yards and five touchdowns in his past five games. He suffered a wicked helmet-to-helmet hit while trying to field an onside kick and was knocked out of the game. "He passed whatever test he needed to pass to come out of the stadium," Arians said, "but that's still a long ways to go from being cleared." Fitzgerald's status might not be determined until later in the week after he completes multiple baseline tests.

Yeah, that was an awful way to lose your #1 WR.

The punter we talked about yesterday suffered a fractured vertebrae (sp?) in his neck too Otis.

Not surprising... that was about as hellacious a hit as I've seen in awhile.

It was sort of like a water buffalo taking out a spider monkey.

Coach Arians has done a nice job down there in AZ.

Probably not gonna happen but I'd love to see them win out, especially this week in Seattle.

It's not a good thing to have your team all banged up and having to play @ Seattle. I might have said a healthy Arizona had a chance at beating Seattle and staying in the playoff hunt. Having Palmer and Fitzgerald playing with painful injuries will end any glimmer of hope of making the playoffs.

He probably won't win COY, be he deserves to be in the conversation.
