Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd is without a return timetable from his finger injury, according to AZCentral Sports. Floyd dislocated three fingers during Wednesday's practice and underwent surgery Thursday to repair the injury, which head coach Bruce Arians described as "unique." “Unfortunately, some of us have seen it,” Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “It’s one of those things you wish you hadn’t seen. He's a tough guy." The 25-year-old was initially diagnosed with broken fingers, which would have kept him out for at least six weeks, but there is a chance that he could return sooner than that after his most recent diagnosis. Floyd posted career-highs of six touchdowns and 17.9 yards per catch last season and was expected to play a large role in the passing game with quarterback Carson Palmer healthy to start the season. A timetable should be available shortly after he has time to recover from Thursday's surgical procedure.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd left Wednesday's practice after suffering an injury to his left hand, according to the team's official website. The extent of the injury is not yet known, but Floyd's left arm and hand were held by a trainer on the way off the field. An official report on the state of the 25-year-old's injury should be released soon after he is examined by team physicians, but the early signs are not positive. Floyd posted career-highs of six touchdowns and 17.9 yards per reception last season despite starting quarterback Carson Palmer going down with a knee injury in Week 6, and he was poised to take a step forward this season with the latter healthy to begin the year. A broken hand would likely sideline Floyd for a minimum of six weeks, which would put his availability for the start of the regular season in serious doubt.

Floyd was sidelined during the Cardinals' minicamp last week due to a hamstring concern, the Cardinals' official site reports.

On the first day of minicamp, Floyd sat out with what head coach Bruce Arians deemed "a slight hamstring tweak," according to Craig Grialou of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. Instead, Floyd worked on the side, which indicates the minor nature of the injury and the likelihood that he'll achieve full health in time for the start of training camp on Aug. 1. Even though John Brown is expected to take up a larger portion of the offensive snaps in 2015, Floyd is a decent bet to tally the second 1,000-yard season of his career.

Floyd is not practicing at minicamp Tuesday because of a minor hamstring tweak, Craig Grialou of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports reports.

Floyd has yet to miss a game through three NFL seasons, and there's no indication of his injury being serious. More important, QB Carson Palmer (torn ACL) is making good progress, with all signs pointing toward him starting against the Saints in Week 1. Floyd thus has a nice opportunity to bounce back from his disappointing 2014, although there's been no shortage of hype surrounding second-year wideout John Brown. If Palmer stays healthy, there should be enough targets to go around, especially with Larry Fitzgerald another year older.

The Cardinals exercised their fifth-year option on the Floyd's contract, the team's official site reports.

Floyd, the 13th overall pick in the 2012 draft, is thus under contract with the team for the 2016 season, though his salary is guaranteed for injury only. As a result of the move, Floyd -- who will make $1.75 million this coming season -- is now in line to earn about $7.3 million in 2016. In his third NFL campaign (in 2014), Floyd saw an overall dip in his production (47/841/6), but he's a candidate for a bounce-back this coming season, with added stability at the team's QB position presumably on tap, assuming Carson Palmer's health.
