The Arizona Cardinals receiving corps will be down another man for the near future, as Larry Fitzgerald sat out Friday's preseason game against the San Diego Chargers because of a slight MCL sprain.

Coach Bruce Arians told reporters Friday the injury is, "just minor." And while the Cardinals will likely be cautious with the veteran the remainder of the preseason, he's expected to be ready for the season opener.
