GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Observed in the locker room after the Arizona Cardinals27-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons:

Abraham
No bye-week blues: It was a jovial Cardinals locker room as they enter the bye week at 4-4. Guys were smiling, laughing and hugging it out. “Not saying you can relax more now, but you feel a little better about your preparation for your weeks coming out,” linebacker John Abraham said.

Abraham cleared: Abraham left the game in the third quarter after a blow to the head, but the former Falcon said he took and passed a test after the game.

Painful finger: Left tackle Bradley Sowell got his right middle finger caught in a blocker during the game and damaged part of his nail. It was painful, he said, but Sowell was able to finish the game.

Collector’s items: Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald became the youngest player in NFL history to catch 800 passes. When asked what he’ll do with the game ball, Fitzgerald said it’s going home. He has kept the ball from his first catch and then from every hundredth after. That leaves him with nine overall.
