Cardinals | Fitzgerald playing lighter this season

Bob McManaman and Kent Somers, of The Arizona Republic, reports Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is playing at a weight of 213 pounds, down from 228 pounds last season. Fitzgerald made losing weight a goal in the offseason, because he thought it would help his quickness and speed. Fitzgerald's lighter weight is one reason he's improved at running after the catch this season. "I'm definitely able to sustain my speed a lot longer," Fitzgerald said. "My endurance is better. I can run down the field repeatedly and I don't get winded. I think a lot of that is a tribute to John Lott (strength and conditioning coach)."
