Michael Floyd (dislocated fingers) was catching "soft passes" on Tuesday.
The piece of progress comes six days after coach Bruce Arians said he was "optimistic" Floyd would be ready for the opener. "I think my hand is doing what I want it to do," Floyd said. "I’m a fast healer, thank God." Still, we might not get a strong feel for Floyd's Week 1 status until the Cards get in an official practice next week. Sep 1 - 2:45 PM

Coach Bruce Arians is "optimistic" Michael Floyd (fingers) will play Week 1.

Floyd dislocated his fingers three weeks ago today and had the stitches removed from his hand last week. With 18 days to go until the opener, there's a good chance Floyd will be ready. It's unclear what his role will be with John Brown emerging as Carson Palmer's favorite target and Larry Fitzgerald still manning the short-to-intermediate levels. But Floyd's ADP has dropped significantly, from Round 8 to Round 11, making him a worthy flier.

Michael Floyd (dislocated fingers) has had the stitches removed from his left hand.

Floyd tweeted Tuesday that "everything is coming along." If Floyd continues to progress without setbacks, there's a good chance he'll be ready for Week 1. He's still a long-shot for Arizona's regular season dress rehearsal on August 30.
Aug 18 - 3:10 PM

Michael Floyd (dislocated fingers) is "hopeful" he'll be ready for Week 1.

For now, Floyd said he's taking things "day by day." He's without an official timetable for a return, and appears no better than 50-50 for the opener. Floyd will almost certainly miss the entire preseason.
Aug 11 - 7:54 PM

Michael Floyd's three dislocated fingers came through the left palm of his hand.

The fingers punctured the skin through Floyd's hand. It must have been a gruesome injury to see. Floyd underwent surgery and has no official timetable for return. Reporters have stated Floyd's timeline is 3-5 weeks, but coach Bruce Arians gave none when pressed Friday. Floyd seems doubtful for Week 1.
Aug 8 - 11:19 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians referred to Michael Floyd's hand injury as "unique" on Friday, and provided no timetable for return.

The uniqueness of Floyd's injury gives doctors a limited precedent from which to work when forecasting his recovery. Floyd dislocated three fingers to the point that they were sticking out of his skin. Early estimates have had Floyd back in 3-5 weeks. He's on the doubtful side of questionable for Week 1.
Aug 7 - 2:10 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Michael Floyd underwent surgery because his dislocated fingers "broke through skin."

In other words, not your typical dislocation. Per Werder, the team pegs Floyd's timeline as 3-5 weeks. That gives him a legitimate chance to be ready for the Sept. 13 opener, but he should be considered week to week until further notice.
Aug 6 - 4:06 PM

Michael Floyd had surgery to repair his three dislocated fingers.

If Floyd can avoid setbacks, he should be back in about a month. It doesn't look like he's in danger of missing Arizona's season opener against New Orleans on September 13. Floyd might see a small drop in ADP with No. 3 wideout John Brown getting a slight boost.
Aug 6 - 9:45 AM

Updating a previous item, Michael Floyd is only expected to miss around a month following Wednesday's left-hand injury.

A source told the Arizona Republic Floyd escaped with "dislocated fingers" as opposed to fractures. The originally-reported timeline was six weeks, which almost certainly would've sidelined Floyd into the season. Floyd may now be ready for Week 1, though he's still going to miss all of training camp and the preseason while Carson Palmer builds trust with John "Smokey" Brown.
Aug 5 - 9:40 PM

Michael Floyd suffered three broken fingers on his left hand in Wednesday's training camp practice.

Floyd is expected to miss six weeks, putting him in serious doubt for Week 1. Although Floyd figures to return early in the year, the Cardinals will spend the next month-plus drawing up ways to get John Brown the football. Brown will indeed open the season as a starter and could stay with the first-team offense even when Floyd returns. A disappointment through two seasons in Bruce Arians' system, Floyd isn't going to take a fantasy step forward this year.
Aug 5 - 7:28 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Sunday that fourth-year WR Michael Floyd needs to be "just more consistent."

"He should be a big-time player," Arians said. "He needs to be a big-time player in big games. Those 50-50 balls, start coming down with them." Floyd was utilized as a low-volume vertical streaker last season, leading to frustrating fantasy weeks. While Floyd figures to take a step forward with his efficiency, he seems unlikely to become a 70-catch player in Arians' offense.
Aug 2 - 11:52 AM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has been impressed with Michael Floyd's conditioning in OTAs.

The Cardinals are beginning the process of building Floyd back up after word leaked he was available via trade. Standing in at 6-foot-3, Floyd shed some weight before his rookie year, but his conditioning has never been known to be an issue. Floyd knows 2015 is a critical year for his career. A motivated offseason would serve all parties well.
May 19 - 1:50 PM

According to the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals will listen if a teams calls with interest in trading for WR Michael Floyd.

Interesting. Floyd is coming off a down year where he showed inconsistent hands as a pure field stretcher. A whopping 34 of his 94 targets were 20-plus yards downfield, and Floyd had a high 18.75 percent drop rate on such passes. Just last week the Cardinals were uncertain if they were going to pick up his 2016 fifth-year option. They decided to exercise it, but appear willing to deal the 25-year-old. The Cardinals are in love with John Brown and want to increase his role.
May 1 - 4:27 PM

The Cardinals have exercised their fifth-year option on WR Michael Floyd.

Floyd's option is guaranteed for injury only, and will be worth $7.3 million. After posting a 47/841/6 line last year, the Cardinals are expecting Floyd to improve with the return of Carson Palmer. Floyd has struggled with consistency throughout his first three seasons. The Cardinals could have trouble paying Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald a combined $23.1 million in 2016.
Apr 29 - 6:27 PM

The Cardinals haven't decided if they want to pick up Michael Floyd's fifth-year option for 2016.

Floyd is coming off a meager 47-841-6 season and the option is worth $7.3 million. But that lack of production stemmed partly from the Cardinals' quarterback woes and partly from the boom-or-bust way that Floyd was used. The Cardinals must make a decision by May 3.
