Michael Floyd (concussion) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday, getting in a "full" session.

Floyd was looking dicey for Sunday's game against the Rams after he reported a concussion on Monday, but he's suddenly on track to start. Off to a slow start as Larry Fitzgerald dominates targets, Floyd will be a low-end WR3 against the Rams. His quick recovery knocks John Brown from the WR3 fringes.

Michael Floyd (concussion) has been cleared for football activity.

Floyd practiced in a non-contact jersey Wednesday. He's still in the concussion protocol, but will be reevaluated on Thursday. The Cardinals are "optimistic" on Floyd's Week 4 status.
Sep 28 - 5:14 PM

Michael Floyd is in the league's concussion protocol.

Floyd was evaluated and cleared on Sunday, but had a headache on Monday. It's bad news for a player off to a slow start. Floyd's status will be updated no later than Wednesday, when the Cardinals issue their first Week 4 injury report. An absence against the Rams would create a big opening for John Brown, who is off to a shaky start after concussion issues of his own.
Sep 26 - 3:19 PM

Michael Floyd caught 4-of-11 targets for 65 yards in the Cardinals' Week 3 loss to the Bills.

The Cardinals tried numerous deep shots to Floyd early in the game, but connected on none of them and wound up trying to nickel and dime Buffalo's defense underneath, which didn't work. Floyd scored a touchdown in Week 2 and has gone over 60 yards in his other two games, but he has been a disappointment in fantasy early in the season. He'll get a tougher draw in Week 4 when the Cardinals take on a Rams defense that suffocates perimeter wideouts.
Sep 25 - 5:00 PM

Michael Floyd caught 2-of-6 targets for eight yards and a touchdown in Arizona's Week 2 win over the Bucs.

Floyd seems to have left John Brown in the dust, but the problem is that Larry Fitzgerald has left both in the dust, drawing 21 targets in two games. Floyd has 15. Floyd's WR2/3 numbers should be there, but he seems poised to remain frustratingly boom or bust after flashing takeover potential in the second half last season. Floyd will be a WR2 against the Bills' scorched-earth secondary in Week 3.
Sep 18 - 7:39 PM

Michael Floyd corralled three-of-seven targets for 60 yards Sunday in the Cardinals' Week 1 loss to the Patriots.

Floyd beat Malcolm Butler for a masterful 39-yard catch in the opening quarter but that was his only true highlight. He was targeted in the end zone twice in a row during the fourth quarter but came up empty both times. Dating back to last season, Floyd has now seen at least seven targets in seven of his last eight games. He should have an easier assignment against Tampa Bay in Week 2.
Sep 12 - 1:17 AM

Michael Floyd caught his lone target for ten yards in the Cardinals' third preseason game.

With John Brown (concussion) and Larry Fitzgerald (knee) on the shelf, Arizona's three-receiver set was made up of Floyd, Jaron Brown, and J.J. Nelson against the Texans. Floyd's time on the field was brief, along with Carson Palmer's. Floyd should be pressing for a career year in his contract season.
Aug 28 - 5:29 PM

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he’ll "look at addressing" an extension for contract-year WR Michael Floyd.

"Mike has made tremendous strides, not only from a skill-set but from a maturity standpoint," Keim said. "I think he took it to another level." Floyd came on down the stretch last year, posting 100-plus yards in three of his last five games. The sides could open talks closer to OTAs.
Feb 24 - 7:21 PM

Michael Floyd secured 3-of-8 targets for 37 yards in the Cardinals' NFC Championship loss to the Panthers.

Josh Norman shadowed Floyd whenever he lined up outside. Floyd didn't catch a pass until the fourth quarter, before tacking on a few garbage-time receptions. Floyd's 2015 was still largely a success, finishing at 52-849-6 receiving despite battling multiple injuries. Floyd turned 26 in November. Owed a $7.3 million base salary, Floyd will enter his contract year in 2016.
Jan 24 - 10:19 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians believes Michael Floyd would have had a 1,500-yard season had he not severely dislocated three fingers in training camp.

"He was having a great camp," Arians said. "And he's having a hell of a season, especially the second half." Arians' comments are a reminder of how much the Cardinals value the 26-year-old wideout, and supported by the fact that Floyd went nuts down the stretch, clearing 100 yards in 5-of-6 healthy games.
Jan 21 - 7:17 PM

Michael Floyd caught 3-of-7 targets for 26 yards and two touchdowns in the Cardinals' Divisional Round win over the Packers.

Floyd kicked off the scoring with a beautiful, toe-drag touchdown in the back corner of the end zone in the first quarter. He was quiet for the majority of the game after the score, but he popped back up to catch a tipped ball for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter to give Arizona a four-point lead. He also had an important third-down conversion on that drive. The touchdowns make the day look better, but Floyd has struggled the last two games. The Cardinals will need more from him next week.
Jan 17 - 12:33 AM

Michael Floyd caught 1-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the Cardinals' Week 17 loss to the Seahawks.

The good news is, Floyd played through his knee injury and avoided setbacks. With two weeks to rest up, he should be good to reassume No. 1 status for the Cardinals' Divisional Round game.
Jan 3 - 8:05 PM

Michael Floyd (knee) is active for Week 17 against the Seahawks.

Floyd was spotted limping around Friday's practice, and could be on a snap count. He's a boom-or-bust WR2/3 in fantasy. Inactive for the Cardinals are QB Matt Barkley, OLB Markus Golden, CB Corey White, LB Shaq Riddick, OT D.J. Humphries, NT Xavier Williams and DT Josh Mauro.
Jan 3 - 2:58 PM

The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers wrote on Twitter that Michael Floyd (knee, questionable) was limping in Friday's practice.

Specifically, Somers wrote coach Bruce Arians "said (Floyd) was limping on Friday," and guessed Floyd's injury will hamper him in Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Keep in mind Somers said this in a tweet thread, and no other beat writers mentioned Arians saying Floyd was limping in their Friday/Saturday stories. Still, it's a concern for Floyd's fantasy outlook in a game the Cardinals would love to win, but don't necessarily have to because they are already locked into the NFC's No. 2 seed at worst.
