The Cardinals wrapped up Flagstaff practice this afternoon under gloomy skies and a little rain (but not enough to drive them inside.) As usual, Larry Fitzgerald made a few nice catches, including one in the back of the end zone, just getting both feet in. But it was what happened next that provided the highlight.
Three people — turns out, it was the family of quarterbacks coach Chris Miller — were sitting in chairs about eight yards or so beyond the back of the end zone. Fitz’s catch created enough momentum that he couldn’t slow down, which was basically going to mean he was going to run over a women sitting there. But Fitz managed to hurdle her — those watching estimated he cleared three-and-a-half or four feet — saving everyone involved and making it an interesting anecdote instead of a freak accident.
“That was a good ball by Kevin (Kolb) giving me an opportunity,” Fitzgerald said. “I didn’t know if I could get around here so I thought I should just go over the top. I’m just glad she didn’t stand up.”
