Floyd (concussion) practiced fully Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
With the concussion protocol in the rearview mirror, Floyd was able to handle every aspect of Thursday's session, which was the expectation all along from head coach Bruce Arians. In eight career games against Sunday's opponent (the Rams), Floyd has never hit paydirt, while averaging 8.8 YPT on his 44 looks.

Floyd (concussion) was limited at practice Wednesday, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
After emerging from Sunday's loss at Buffalo with a concussion, Floyd has breezed through the NFL's protocol for head injuries. As evidence, head coach Bruce Arians stated Wednesday that Floyd completed Wednesday's practice in a yellow non-contact jersey, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. Floyd must receive clearance from an independent neurologist in order to take part in all activity, but considering the progress made already, he could back up Arians' optimism outlook from Tuesday in which he stated a belief the wide receiver could reach that point by Thursday.

Floyd (concussion) has been cleared for non-contact activity and coach Bruce Arians remains optimistic he'll be cleared in full by Thursday, Alex Marvez of Sporting News reports.
Floyd entered the league mandated concussion protocol on Monday and is already seeing vast improvement with his condition. He'll be good to go for non-contact drills on Wednesday and as long as he doesn't have any lingering symptoms, he should be cleared in full come Thursday. With that said, it appears Floyd should be ready for Sunday's matchup with the Rams, but his practice availability over the next few days should either confirm or deny that sentiment.

Floyd has entered the concussion protocol following Sunday's beatdown at the hands of the Bills.
Floyd was removed for a spell Sunday in order to be examined for a head injury, but an independent neurologist cleared the wideout to return to the field. Finishing the contest with four catches (on 11 targets) for 65 yards -- all season highs -- he'll now be subject to a rigorous protocol before receiving clearance for game action. If he's ultimately ruled out for this Sunday's contest versus the Rams, Jaron Brown is the likely candidate to receive an uptick in snaps.

Floyd compiled two receptions (on six targets) for eight yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 40-7 win versus the Buccaneers.
A regular in the Cardinals' base offense, as evidenced by taking in 53 of 66 offensive snaps Sunday, Floyd has yet to cobble together a premier stat line. In Week 1, he posted 61 yards on his three receptions but didn't reach the end zone. Despite doing so in Week 2, Floyd couldn't attain double-digit yards on a pair of catches. Gathering in five of 13 targets (38.5 percent) through two games, he's seemingly not on the same page with quarterback Carson Palmer, but the sample size is too small to make a definitive call at this point. With plenty of mouths to feed in Arizona, though, Floyd's ceiling isn't incredibly desirable.

Floyd gathered in three of seven passes for 61 yards during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
The Cardinals' offense didn't operate like the well-oiled machine displayed throughout much of the 2015 campaign, but Floyd was able to emerge from the array of weapons available to Carson Palmer with the second-most targets on the team. Floyd picked up his largest piece of yardage in a nondescript drive in the first quarter, notching 39 yards as Palmer hit him in stride down the left sideline. Outside of Arizona's fourth-quarter touchdown drive, when he was targeted three times, Floyd was relatively quiet in his quest for the second 1,000-yard season of his career.

Floyd corralled one of three passes for two yards during Friday's preseason defeat in San Diego.
The Cardinals have deployed Floyd on the same possessions as quarterback Carson Palmer this preseason, indicating the wide receiver's clear standing in the offense. Two of the starting WR triumvirate have also been sidelined -- John Brown (concussion) and Larry Fitzgerald (slight MCL sprain) -- so it's difficult to read into the capabilities of the first-team offense. Seeking the second 1,000-yard season of his career, Floyd should have access to plenty of targets under the free-wheeling style of head coach Bruce Arians.

Floyd nabbed three of eight targets for 37 yards in Sunday's NFC championship loss to Carolina.
Floyd was hampered by injuries for much of the season, but was still able to come on strong during the season's second half, putting together five 100-yard games between Weeks 9 and 16. Fantasy owners have been waiting for the young receiver to take the next step in his evolution after consistently good-but-not-great seasons in recent years. If he manages to stay healthy, Floyd has given plenty of reasons why he could break out in 2016, a contract year.

Floyd secured three of seven targets for 26 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 26-20 divisional round overtime victory over the Packers.
While he was overshadowed by fellow wideout Larry Fitzgerald, Floyd's knack for making every catch count stood out Saturday and was key to the victory. The four-year pro's go-ahead nine-yard reception late in the fourth quarter resulted from his alert grab of a Carson Palmer pass that deflected off Fitzgerald a few yards in front of Floyd. The Notre Dame product had also opened the scoring in the first quarter with an eight-yard touchdown grab that capped off an 11-play, 42-yard drive. Floyd's outstanding size and speed will undoubtedly be a significant part of the Cardinals' offensive attack in the NFC Championship Game.

Floyd (knee) wasn't listed on the Cardinals' injury report Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
Floyd's activity level was affected in advance of the regular season finale due to a knee injury, and despite receiving 44 of 58 offensive snaps, he was contained to one reception (on four targets) for 16 yards in the Cardinals' 36-6 loss to the Seahawks. One week prior, though, he touched up the Packers for six catches and 111 yards, which he'll attempt to replicate on Saturday night.
