Larry Fitzgerald is officially listed as questionable with his sore knee, but the receiver said “I’m feeling good and excited for (Sunday),” and he continues to leave little wiggle room that he will do anything but play against the Lions. Now, coach Ken Whisenhunt isn’t quite as concrete, so we’ll see how that works out. The two both agree Fitzgerald has been progressing daily.
Left tackle Mike Gandy will not play, Whisenhunt said, meaning Jeremy Bridges will start in his place. Kicker Neil Rackers is also out, and Whisenhunt said he was pleased with the efforts of Mike Nugent in practice, going as far to say he was surprised Nugent didn’t already have a job. Given that Nugent’s downfall with the Buccaneers was a windy day in Washington, the Cards can feel good Nugent won’t have to deal with the elements for the rest of the regular season (or the rest of Rackers’ time off, whichever is less, right?).
Linebacker Gerald Hayes (back) returned to practicing full today as well.
