Arians: Larry Fitzgerald played at 80 percent

October 23, 2013

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians joined SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday to discuss a few hot topics surrounding his team. Among them: The possibility of benching former Pro-Bowl quarterback Carson Palmer, owner of a disappointing 69.5 passer rating through seven weeks.

“Carson is our guy,” Arians said. “He continues to get better in a lot of ways, studies the game as hard as he can.”

Arians also addressed the health of star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

“Larry probably played that game at 80 percent,” Arians said, referring to Arizona’s Week 7 game against Seattle. “He continues to try to gut it out and play, and you know, this rest has really helped him.”
