He was asked what the chances are that he will play on Sunday.
"I'm highly likely, but it's not my call, though," Fitzgerald said to The Arizona Republic.
Fitzgerald, an eight-time Pro Bowler, said his knee was feeling better after not practicing for two weeks, but his status for the game against the Falcons has not been updated.
He said it was strange not playing in a game for the first time in almost seven seasons when he sat out against the Seahawks.
"I didn't know what the routine was," Fitzgerald said. "What I was supposed to do. It was just a really awkward feeling to be there but not being able to actually do anything to help your team. That was frustrating."
Fitzgerald has 46 catches for 658 yards and two touchdowns this season for the Cardinals, who entered Week 13 with a two-game lead over the Seahawks in the NFC West. Seattle won on Thursday night, closing the gap a little.
