Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald tests positive for COVID-19, will miss game vs. Patriots

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

Arizona placed Fitzgerald and fellow wideout Trent Sherfield on the reserve/COVID-19 list later Thursday.

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

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