Alongside Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald will be celebrating a lot this autumn.

Elite Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald remained limited in practice Thursday with a slight leg injury.

Although nothing serious, the 29-year-old Fitzgerald tweaked his hamstring during Sunday’s 27-24 loss to the Rams in St. Louis.

Handcuffed by an atrocious collection of quarterbacks since Kurt Warner retired in 2009, Fitzgerald looked reinvigorated teaming with Carson Palmer and caught eight passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns against St. Louis.

With a two-time Pro Bowler now under center in Arizona, the 6-foot-4, 217 pound Fitzgerald is nearly certain to play this weekend versus the Lions in Glendale.

Acquired from the Raiders for a sixth round draft choice in April and a conditional pick next spring, the 33-year-old Palmer performed well last season in “The Town” and threw 22 scores, in contrast to 14 interceptions, for 4,018 yards.

Considering the first overall selection in 2003 is still very productive on the gridiron, Palmer and Fitzgerald are poised to become a blistering tandem in the Valley of the Sun.

Unfortunately for Cardinals supporters, Arizona competes in the NFC West against the powerful San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.

Accordingly, Arizona isn’t exactly one of the league’s sleepers or budding juggernauts.

Regardless, Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald will enliven the sports scene in the Phoenix metropolitan area and give Cardinals fans a reason to hope this autumn.
