Cards' Fitzgerald says left knee `a little better'

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona's eight-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald says his injured left knee is "a little better" and that he is optimistic that he will be able to play when the Cardinals face the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday.

Fitzgerald sprained his left MCL in last Sunday's 14-6 win over Detroit. He left the game in the first half, but returned and caught a pass for the first down that clinched the victory.

He has played in 110 consecutive games with 71 straight starts, but coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that it was "a little iffy" whether Fitzgerald will be able to go against the Seahawks.

He has not practiced this week.
