Michael Floyd (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.
After missing practice all last week and being inactive for Week 11, Floyd is back on track to play Sunday against the 49ers in a plus matchup. As long as he avoids setbacks, Floyd will be a high-risk, high-reward WR3. Nov 25 - 1:57 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said the team will be cautious with Michael Floyd (hamstring).

"Until he can open up and go, there's no need to press it," Arians said. Floyd did not practice at all last week and was inactive against the Bengals. It looks like this could be a multiple-week injury. It would be surprising if he practices Wednesday.

Michael Floyd (hamstring) is inactive for Week 11 against the Bengals.

Floyd was a longshot to play after missing practice all week. John Brown (hamstrings) is active, but is a boom-or-bust WR3 at less than 100 percent. The rest of the Cardinals inactives are QB Matt Barkley, CB Robert Nelson, LB Shaq Riddick, OG Jonathan Cooper, OT D.J. Humphries, and DT Cory Redding.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is hearing Michael Floyd (hamstring) will be limited "at best" if he plays Sunday against the Bengals.

Floyd didn't practice all week. He'll likely be a decoy if he plays at all on Sunday. Considering the Cardinals don't kick off until 8:30 PM ET, fantasy owners would be wise to look at other options. According to Schefter, John Brown (hamstring) should be ready to go.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians stated Friday that Michael Floyd (hamstring, questionable) will be a game-time decision Sunday night against the Bengals.

Floyd did not practice all week and may be utilized only as a decoy against Cincinnati. "If Floyd can run, we can use him," said Arians. Fantasy owners can't be optimistic about Floyd's chances of producing, even in an improved matchup against a Bengals secondary missing Pacman Jones (foot, doubtful).

Michael Floyd (hamstring) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He hasn't practiced since tweaking his hamstring late in Sunday's win against the Seahawks. There's very little chance of him playing this week. With John Brown (hamstring) also dinged up, Jaron Brown might see more run than usual Sunday versus Cincinnati.

Michael Floyd (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

Floyd is looking mighty questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He needs to get in at least a limited session on Friday to have any real shot at suiting up.
Nov 19 - 1:40 PM

Michael Floyd (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

John Brown (hamstring) also missed Wednesday's practice. Brown's issue has lingered for weeks, and Floyd went down late in the Sunday night win over the Seahawks in Week 10. Both are legitimately questionable for Sunday against the Bengals. Jaron Brown and J.J. Nelson are the Nos. 4 and 5 WRs.
Nov 18 - 1:48 PM

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians considers Michael Floyd (hamstring) "day to day."

Floyd went down late in Sunday evening's win over the Seahawks. Soft-tissue injuries haven't been a concern for Floyd in the NFL, though he did have a minor hamstring issue at Notre Dame. As Floyd's teammate John Brown has shown, hamstring ailments can be problematic for wideouts. For now, Floyd should be considered genuinely questionable for Week 11.

Michael Floyd was forced from Week 10 against Seattle with a hamstring injury.

The Cardinals listed his return as questionable, but Floyd didn't finish the game. He had seven catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns before going down in the fourth quarter. Jaron Brown replaced Floyd on the outside.

Coach Bruce Arians said Michael Floyd is "probably going to take back" the starting job from John Brown opposite Larry Fitzgerald.

"[Floyd] got hurt," Arians said. "[Brown] took his job & now he's probably going to take it back." Without further context, this can be read two ways. Either, Arians is saying Floyd is regaining his starting job after stringing strong weeks together, or coach is saying Brown will "take back" the job when healthy coming out of the bye. We read it as the former, with Floyd taking over as the No. 2 receiver. Either way, both players are going to play a ton because Arizona runs predominantly three-wide sets. It's just evidence that Floyd has reemerged as a strong WR3. Brown remains a WR2/3.
Nov 4 - 12:34 PM

Michael Floyd caught 4-of-8 targets for 106 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 8 win over the Browns.

With John Brown (hamstring) active but not playing a snap, Floyd was a near-every-down player as the No. 2 receiver and led the Cardinals in yards. The day could have been even bigger, but Floyd had a 19-yard touchdown called back on an illegal shift penalty just before halftime. After the half, Floyd immediately roasted Joe Haden for a 60-yard score on a go route. Playing for his next contract, Floyd's role has increased in recent weeks. He's a solid WR3/4 with big-time upside. The 6-2 Cardinals head into their bye before going to Seattle in Week 10.
Nov 1 - 5:16 PM

Michael Floyd caught 3-of-4 targets for 59 yards and one touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 7 win over the Ravens on Monday night.

Floyd's role continues to grow in pass-happy Arizona as he's reentered the mix as a WR3/4. The Cardinals head to Cleveland in Week 8.

Michael Floyd absorbed five of eight targets for 50 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' Week 6 loss to the Steelers.

In his best game of the season, Floyd got the scoring started with a three-yard touchdown from Carson Palmer on a play where the defense disappeared. He nearly came down with another touchdown on a deep bomb from Palmer in the fourth quarter but couldn’t keep both feet in bounds. He made another impressive catch on third-and-long in the second quarter, diving on a ball that was badly underthrown. Floyd isn’t always Palmer’s first choice but he was definitely a difference maker on Sunday. We’ll see if that momentum carries over into next week’s game against the Ravens.
Oct 18 - 5:16 PM

Michael Floyd caught one of three targets for 15 yards in the Cardinals' Week 5 win over the Lions.

On a day when everything the Cardinals touched turned to gold, Floyd was somehow invisible. That’s been the theme for him this year. Floyd has been one of fantasy’s biggest disappointments and should continue to be against the Steelers in Week 6.
