GLENDALE, AZ — Arizona Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a Thursday report.

According to reports from NFL.com, the wide-receiver will not play in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots following a positive coronavirus test.

Fitzgerald had eight receptions for 62 yards in the Cardinals 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in their most recent game.

Fitz has 43 receptions for 336 yards this season, and his 43 catches rank second on the team behind DeAndre Hopkins, who has a total of 72 for 912 yards with four touchdowns.

The Cardinals released a statement Thursday evening confirming that Fitzgerald, as well as fellow wide receiver Trent Sherfield, had been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

According to the club, the reserve list category was created for a player with a positive COVID-19 test, or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.
