Michael Floyd WR ARI 2 Hrs

Floyd had five receptions (nine targets) for 114 yards in Sunday's win against San Francisco.

Floyd showed a good rapport with Drew Stanton, especially on deep throws, after the duo struggled the previous week. Other than the dud in Week 2, Floyd has been tremendous, although he's still looking for his first touchdown of the year.

Floyd had one catch on six targets for 19 yards Sunday against the Giants.

While Larry Fitzgerald (six catches on 10 targets for 51 yards) seemed to have decent-enough chemistry with quarterback Drew Stanton, who was playing in place of the injured Carson Palmer (shoulder), Floyd never seemed to get on the same page. It was a dramatic decline from the five catches on seven targets for 119 yards he had in Week 1 with Palmer throwing him the ball, and he'll be looking to get his starting QB back in Week 3 against a tough 49ers defense.

Floyd caught five of his seven targets for 119 yards Monday night.

No other wideout saw more than four targets, and some of Floyd's were down the field. While Larry Fitzgerald could continue to see most of the red-zone work, Floyd is the big-play option.

Floyd (groin) had just one catch for four yards in Sunday's preseason game against Cincinnati.

On Arizona's first possession, Carson Palmer went deep to Floyd on back-to-back plays, both of which should have resulted in a touchdown, but the duo could not connect. Floyd showed off his great speed on the first long throw, easily beating cornerback Terrance Newman. Even though Floyd was unable to come down with either long pass, he did not appear to be effected by his groin injury. Once the regular season begins, a key question is whether or not Floyd will get enough volume to take the next step to an elite fantasy option. With Larry Fitzgerald still in the fold, it could be tough for Floyd to rack up a ton of catches, but Arizona's passing game has the potential to be strong this year, meaning there might be enough to go around for both the veteran superstar and the improving third-year wide receiver.

Floyd (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

With their next preseason game Sunday versus the Bengals, the Cardinals are more or less on a schedule representative of the regular season. Although Floyd's participation is a positive sign for his availability this weekend, his recovering groin likely has to improve each day in order to achieve active status. Even if he fails to take the field, there's little worry regarding his ability to play in Week 1.

Floyd (groin) is slated to return to practice Wednesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Coach Bruce Arians is more than displeased with some of his mainstays like Floyd taking residence in the training room, but groin concerns can linger, so it was likely the prudent approach to ensure the wideout avoided a setback. If he makes the requisite progress in drills this week, there's a possibility that Floyd will play in the Cardinals' third preseason outing, which normally affords starters about a half of play. In any case, he appears poised to be healthy once the regular season kicks off on Sept. 8 versus the Chargers.

Floyd (groin) did not play in Saturday's preseason game versus Minnesota.

Floyd has been sidelined for Arizona's first two preseason games due to a groin issue. While he hasn't featured in game action just yet, Floyd has been able to practice most days thus far, indicating his injury is a minor one that simply requires maintenance here and there. Following a breakout second-season, Floyd will look to play some time before the regular season and pick up where he left off last term.

Floyd (groin) -- who did not practice Tuesday -- could be game-time decision for Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, Kyle Odegard of azcardinals.com reports.

The same applies to fellow receiver Ted Ginn, though the the fact that the duo are listed as potential game-day calls by the report suggests that they are both dealing with minor injury issues.

Floyd (groin) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Texans.

There's no indication that the injury is serious, and Floyd reportedly had a strong offseason. With Ted Ginn (knee) also out Friday, there should be plenty of reps for John Brown and Jaron Brown.

The Arizona Republic says Michael Floyd "understood where he was supposed to be and when to be there" and "caught nearly everything thrown his way" during OTAs and minicamp.

Top beat writer Kent Somers has literally sounded the fantasy alarm on Floyd. Coming off a 65-1041-5 season, the stars are aligning for a bigger breakout in Year 3. Aging Larry Fitzgerald has been reduced to an underneath, possession kind of role while the 24-year-old Floyd is ascending. The physically imposing former first-round pick has been the unquestioned star of Cardinals' offseason practices.
