Michael Floyd: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Floyd had the stitches removed from his fingers Tuesday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 AM reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Floyd dislocated three fingers Aug. 5, so it isn't simply a matter of allowing the laceration to heal. He seems to be making good progress, but with an initial timetable of 3-6 weeks, he's no lock to be ready for Week 1. John Brown and J.J. Nelson have received extra first-team reps in Floyd's absence.
Floyd (fingers) fit in some conditioning work after Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Included within Floyd's regimen were a handful of 100-yard jogs, but his mere presence on the field was welcome, as it marked his first appearance since sustaining three dislocated fingers on Wednesday, Aug. 5. With a wide range of return dates -- between three and six weeks from the initial injury -- his ability to play in Week 1 is likely contingent upon the healing process and if any dexterity in his hand was lost along the way.
Floyd (fingers) is without a return timetable, Kent Somers of azcentral sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Floyd had surgery to repair three dislocated fingers earlier this week, an injury coach Bruce Arians called "unique" in nature. Multiple reports have speculated that Floyd could miss somewhere between three and six weeks, putting his availability for the start of the regular season in jeopardy.
Floyd underwent surgery to repair three dislocated fingers on his left hand late Wednesday night, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Floyd's recovery timetable has been the subject of numerous reports, including 4-to-6 weeks from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports and 3-to-4 weeks from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the latter of which was confirmed by Weinfuss. The preceding are mere expectations rather than set in stone, but Friday's scheduled news conference with head coach Bruce Arians has the potential to clarify Floyd's potential return date. In any case, the wideout should be watched closely over the next few weeks to learn if he'll be available for the regular season opener on Sept. 13 against the Saints.
Floyd suffered three dislocated fingers in Wednesday's practice, and his recovery timetable has been amended to 3-to-4 weeks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per an NFL source, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports initially reported that Floyd would miss six weeks due to broken fingers. However, with further clarification of the injury, the time line has decreased in kind. Floyd's recovery will continue to be monitored closely as Week 1 approaches, but there's a chance that he could be ready for the start of the regular season.
Floyd has been diagnosed with three broken fingers on his left hand, which could sideline him about six weeks, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After sustaining the injury in Wednesday's practice, Floyd's hand and lower left arm were held by a trainer en route to the locker room, likely as a stabilizing measure. If Floyd follows the given time line, he'll be eligible to return to the fold for Week 2 in Chicago. In the meantime, his absence will give Larry Fitzgerald and burner John Brown a boost in the target department, while similarly elevating Jaron Brown, Brittan Golden, and J.J. Nelson up the depth chart.
Floyd left Wednesday's practice due to an injured left hand, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Any hand injury to a footballer is expected to have an impact, no matter the severity, but receivers are especially susceptible to such concerns. Making matters worse, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reported that during his walk off the field, Floyd's left arm and hand were held by a trainer. The Cardinals are sure to relay the diagnosis, once it becomes known, but the early signs aren't positive.
Floyd was sidelined during the Cardinals' minicamp last week due to a hamstring concern, the Cardinals' official site reports.

2014

While Floyd might not overtake Larry Fitzgerald in targets this year, he could easily out-produce him. Despite seeing only 112 passes thrown his way, Floyd was the only Cardinals receiver to crack 1,000 yards, thanks to 16.0 YPC (5th) and 9.3 YPT. He also had 16 catches of 20 or more yards (T. 16th) to Fitzgerald’s eight. Of course, Fitzgerald scored twice as many touchdowns, thanks to his 22 red-zone looks to Floyd’s 12. But at 6-3, 225, Floyd is equally suited to end-zone work, and while the distribution might not be 50/50, it figures to get more even as Floyd further establishes himself in Year 3. Unlike Fitzgerald, Floyd can actually run – his 4.4 40 is blazing for a receiver his size. Carson Palmer isn’t an especially good quarterback these days, but he should be competent enough not to hamper the development of a potential star.

2013

It's unclear why the Cardinals drafted Floyd No. 13 overall and then kept him on the sidelines for so much of the year. When they finally did turn him loose, the results weren't especially impressive other than a Week 17 game against the Niners in which he caught a Hail Mary. But the quarterbacking was so horrible in Arizona that Floyd's poor efficiency numbers (6.5 YPT) have to be graded on a sliding scale. Consider that superstar Larry Fitzgerald posted a miserable 5.1 YPT on that team, and Andre Roberts' 6.7 YPT was also below par. There are three reasons for optimism for Floyd in particular and the Arizona passing game in general this year: (1) They shored up their abysmal offensive line by drafting guard Jonathan Cooper; (2) They traded for a NFL-caliber quarterback, albeit one past his prime, in Carson Palmer; and (3) they fired Ken Whisenhunt, who buried Floyd from the start. At 6-3, 220, Floyd is a huge target and also has good speed (4.47 40) for a player his size. Fitzgerald is still likely to dominate the targets, but there's a good chance Floyd sees more looks than Roberts, and the Cardinals lack pass-catching backs and quality receiving tight ends to siphon off production. Finally, new head coach Bruce Arians was a former wide receiver coach in Pittsburgh (and interim head coach for the pass-happy Colts last year), so we're likely to see a renewed emphasis on the passing game.

2012

The 13th overall pick in this year’s draft, Floyd finds himself in a favorable situation in Arizona. Given the team’s lack of quality depth at wide receiver, Floyd has a chance to start opposite Larry Fitzgerald out of the gate. That means a lot of single coverage and a fair number of targets on a team that doesn’t throw much to its backs or tight ends. At 6-3, 220, and running a 4.47 40, Floyd is an athletic playmaker and solid route-runner. He’s got good hands and excellent ball skills, a problem for smaller defenders. He’s also tough to bring down after the catch. Of course, Andre Roberts and Early Doucet are still around, so Floyd isn’t a lock to start right away, and neither quarterback vying for the job – Kevin Kolb or John Skelton – is above average.
