More from Cardinals News

Receiver Larry Fitzgerald will not practice today.  He was injured in the game against the Detroit Lions this past Sunday.  He came back in and played after the injury however he was diagnosed with a grade two MCL sprain.  We were told to expect him to play this weekend but again is out of practice for Wednesday.

Also not practicing on Wednesday is defensive tackle Ed Stinson.  Stinson also did not play against the Lions this past Sunday.  However good news from the defense is linebacker Matt Shaughnessy returns to practice today after being placed on Designated For Return Injured Reserve.  He will be eligible to play on December 7th against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Arians was also asked about motivation in playing the Seahawks.  Arians knows where both teams stand but also recognizes the reality of history.

Again, Arians keeping it real.  That’s what I love about him, always telling like it is.  Again he is right.  The Cardinals haven’t accomplished anything yet and the Seahawks are the defending champs.   All 9-1 means is first place going into week 12 of the season.
