TEMPE, Ariz. ó The Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to an eight-year contract that could keep the star receiver with the team through the 2018 season.
Terms of the agreement were not released in the teamís announcement Saturday night.
General manager Rod Graves has said the Cardinals were prepared to make Fitzgerald the highest-paid player in team history and one of the highest-paid in the NFL.
Fitzgerald already holds most of the franchiseís receiving records and he shattered most of the NFL playoff receiving records in the teamís Super Bowl run after the 2008 season.
INDIANAPOLIS ó Peyton Manning still thinks he can be ready for the Indianapolis Coltsí regular-season opener.
The rest of the preseason appears to be out.
Manning said Saturday he will use the next two weeks to get healthy from offseason neck surgery, a timeline that could put his streak of 227 consecutive starts in jeopardy.
ěI certainly want to be out there, and itís hard to keep track of the hours Iíve spent in rehab,î he said. ěI was short-changed a little bit by the lockout and Iím going to need every bit of the next two weeks, and then I can give you more of an update with where I am.î
The only four-time MVP in NFL history spoke at halftime of Saturdayís second high school football game at Lucas Oil Stadium. The annual tripleheader is hosted by the PeyBack Foundation, Manningís charity.
SAN FRANCISCO ó Oakland quarterback Jason Campbell left the Raidersí exhibition game against the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night with an injury in the second quarter.
Campbell was hurt late in the second quarter on a scramble play. He was tackled by Justin Smith and appeared to take a forearm to the helmet from linebacker Ahmad Brooks. Campbell was down on the ground briefly while being checked out by trainers.
There was no immediate word on extent of the injury. Campbell was sitting on the bench after being replaced by Trent Edwards. Campbell was 5 for 7 for 74 yards in two-plus series.
Campbell got a stinger last year in the exhibition game against the 49ers that affected him early in the season.
