Fitzgerald was unable to play last week against the Seattle Seahawks due to an sprained left MCL he suffered against the Detroit Lions in Week 11. Although his first practice in two weeks came this Friday (where he was limited to jogging and individual workouts), Fitzgerald says it is highly likely he'll play.
Granted, the Cardinals themselves still have him classified as "questionable" and head coach Bruce Arians calls Fitzgerald a game-time decision, but so far the situation looks promising.
If Fitzgerald does return to the lineup, expect the Cardinals to take advantage of the fact Falcons cornerback Robert Alford is out by lining up the former Pro Bowler alongside journeyman Javier Arenas and giving him a large workload.
