New Orleans Saints rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro is entering only his third NFL game. But he already has a pretty good handle of what it means to face elite receivers and tight ends.

After being asked to defend Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez and Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Vincent Jackson, Vaccaro has gotten a crash course.

Whether that's the case against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday is still in doubt.

Veteran Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been hobbled with a hamstring injury and hasn't practiced this week. Fitzgerald's hamstring sent him out of last week's game against the Detroit Lions, and he's been forced to rest on Cardinals coach Bruch Arians' orders.

Losing Fitzgerald would take away one of quarterback Carson Palmer's biggest targets.

"Larry is also a great blocker, not just a great receiver," Arians said. "You can't take your best player and ask someone to play at that level. You ask them to play the best they can play, and other guys need to step up around him."

Even though Kenny has looked good against some great receivers, I'm still hoping that Fitzgerald isn't playing or is very limited...

Would love to see Fitzgerald limited or better yet... Out.
