Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is expected to play in Sunday's crucial game against the Seattle Seahawks, despite suffering a concussion last week.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that Fitzgerald will not practice on Wednesday and said that he is still going through the NFL's mandatory concussion protocol.

Fitzgerald was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 37-34 victory over the Tennessee Titans when he suffered a helmet-to-helmet hit while trying to field an onside kick.
