Urban’s list of reasons for Arizona not dealing Fitzgerald include:
- Fitzgerald is the face of the franchise
- He’s also their best receiver
- It’s unlikely the Cardinals would be able to get enough compensation for Fitzgerald to make worth it.
- Urban fully expects Fitzgerald to finish out his career in Arizona.
- The Cardinals are still technically in the mix for a playoff spot at 3-4, even though they lost QB Carson Palmer for the next eight weeks.
- The Lions officially ruled out OT Emmett Cleary, OT Greg Robinson and WR Kenny Golladay for Week 8’s game.
- Lions WR Golden Tate, DE Ezekiel Ansah, and LB Paul Worrilow are all questionable.
- Vikings HC Mike Zimmer officially announced that Case Keenum will start against the Browns on Sunday.
- Minnesota officially ruled out Sam Bradford, Jeremiah Sirles and Stephen Weatherly for Week 8’s game.
- The Vikings also list Stefon Diggs, Nick Easton, Riley Reiff, Michael Floyd and Mackensie Alexander as questionable.
