The Cardinals released Floyd on Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd's season has been rife with miscommunication and drops on the field, but his Monday morning arrest for DUI was seemingly the last straw for the Cardinals. In his final campaign with the team, he hauled in just 33 of 70 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games, all career lows. Now subject to waivers, his talent may be too much for another team to pass up as he auditions for free agency in the offseason.

Floyd was arrested Monday morning and charged with driving under the influence, Arizona Sports 98.7FM reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was found unconscious at the wheel of his car while the vehicle was still running early Monday morning, according to the Scottsdale Police Department. He was charged with two counts of DUI and one count of obstructing a roadway and failure to obey a police officer before being released later Monday morning. While it's unclear what kind of potential discipline Floyd could face, his arrest doesn't bode well for his upcoming free agency, and the 27-year-old has disappointed on the field as well, catching just 33 passes for 446 yards and four scores this season.

Floyd gathered in three of eight passes for 18 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's win against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was afflicted by a hamstring injury last week, kicking it off with back-to-back limited practices, but an uncapped session Friday paved the way to active status in Week 12. While such a designation hasn't yielded fruit in his game log, a six-yard connection with Carson Palmer in the third quarter marked his fourth of the season and first since Week 6, a span of six contests. Outside of the end-zone visit, there still isn't much to like about Floyd's fifth campaign, which includes a career-worst 46.2-percent catch rate (31 receptions on 67 targets).

Floyd (hamstring) does not have an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Redskins after fully practicing Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd was limited both Wednesday and Thursday due to a hamstring ailment, but his full session Friday cleared any concern over his status heading into Sunday, when fellow wideout John Brown's (illness) questionable tag could stand to benefit him.

Floyd (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

After missing the final two practices of last week due to a hamstring injury, Floyd was termed a game-time decision but eventually ruled active Sunday in Atlanta. Despite racking up 64 percent of the offensive snaps, he mustered just two catches for 31 yards on five targets, marking the seventh time in 11 contests in which he hauled in fewer than 50 percent of the passes thrown his way. Floyd is at least kicking off this week as limited in practice, but even though he'll likely be active this weekend versus the Redskins, his lack of consistent results makes him difficult to trust.

Floyd (hamstring) pulled in two of five passes for 31 yards during Sunday's defeat in Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

For a player with vast potential, Floyd has been dismal in a contract year, tending to the occasional injury while contending with consistency issues. In Week 12, he was absent from practice Thursday and Friday due to a hamstring issue, which may have lingered from earlier this season. Whether or not that's the case, Floyd still garnered the second-most snaps (64 percent of those on offense) among Cardinals wideouts Sunday, but his production was again disappointing. With little rhyme or reason for his results to date, there's little reason to roll the dice on the fifth-year pro.

Floyd (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday at Atlanta, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd took the field for warmups after no practice reps to wrap up the week, making cuts and accelerating without issue, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. While he's available, he previously played through a hamstring issue in Week 8, when he was a mere decoy.

Head coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Floyd (hamstring) will be a game-time call Sunday in Atlanta, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Officially listed as questionable for the contest, Floyd was unable to practice Thursday or Friday, instead focusing on rehab with the training staff. He previously toughed out a hamstring injury in Week 8 this season, but to no avail as he wasn't even targeted. If the Cardinals sense there's no need to use Floyd as a decoy Sunday, he could be a part of the inactive list for the second time in his five-year career.

Floyd was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's injury report due to a hamstring concern, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd avoided the first report of the week but will now have a bit of murkiness hanging over his head in advance of Sunday's game in Atlanta. Fortunately for the wideout, he's already played through an injured hamstring this season, so his absence Thursday could be a precaution. In that Week 8 tilt at Carolina, though, he wasn't targeted, despite receiving 41 percent of the offensive snaps.

Floyd caught two of five targets for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Floyd had a five game stretch earlier this season during which he scored three touchdowns. His performances have been less consistent of late, with no scores in his last four games and highs as high as a 101-yard game last week against San Francisco and as low as a catchless effort against Carolina. Two targets in the red zone today should been seen as a positive development, but it's hard to envision sustained success for Floyd - especially with J.J. Nelson, weak game against Minnesota aside, and Jermaine Gresham becoming increasingly involved in the passing game.
