Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald updated his will, lost weight during battle with COVID-19

Brett Favre on NFL tightening COVID-19 restrictions for teams

The NFL is making major coronavirus protocol changes, including team facilities shutting down for two days after games; NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre weighs in on ‘Fox and Friends Weekend.’

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday. He was able to resume practice and will play this Sunday against the New York Giants.

Fitzgerald, however, didn’t seem to have an easy encounter with the virus that has infected millions of Americans across the country. He said that he experienced symptoms and lost about nine pounds.

Fitzgerald also said that he hasn’t regained his sense of smell and taste.

"I got my estate planning all done up again, I revised my will," he told reporters. "I did a lot of stuff. When you're sitting at home, and you're watching how many people are dying every day, you really kind of reevaluate things. It makes you appreciate the health that you have."

Fitzgerald, who is in his 17th season, said that he hasn’t thought about retirement during his time away; he was just more focused on getting healthy. He hasn’t played in an NFL game since Nov. 19. The time off allowed his body to feel better, but it is uncertain how much time he’ll play in the game against the Giants on Sunday.
