Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald test positive for COVID-19 and will miss game against Patriots

The Arizona Cardinals will play a game without Larry Fitzgerald for the first time since the 2014 season when they face the Patriots this Sunday.

The future Hall of Fame wide receiver has tested positive for COVID-19, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero reported Thursday.

Fitzgerald is coming off one of his most productive games this season when he recorded eight receptions for 62 yards with a 10-target season in the Cardinals’ 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

For the season, Fitzgerald has 43 receptions for 336 yards, and his 43 catches are second on the team behind DeAndre Hopkins, who leads the way with 72 receptions for 912 yards with four touchdowns.
