Floyd (neck) was unlisted on the Cardinals' injury report Wednesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Floyd broke out of a season-long slump Sunday against the 49ers, recording his first 100-yard outing since Week 16 of the 2015 campaign. On his fifth and final reception, he took a hard fall on his neck, which Larry Fitzgerald (knee/ankle) called a stinger in a post-game media session, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Fortunately for Floyd, he isn't afflicted by the ailment as the Cardinals prepare to face the Vikings' third-ranked defense this Sunday.

Floyd corralled five of six passes for 101 yards during Sunday's 23-20 victory versus the 49ers. However, Larry Fitzgerald (knee) said afterward that Floyd sustained a stinger on his final catch of the game, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Floyd's performances this season have been drop-laden, as he entered with a catch rate of 44.2 percent (19 receptions on 43 targets). Head coach Bruce Arians was fed up enough with the play of both Floyd and John Brown to name JJ Nelson the No. 2 wideout in advance of the Cardinals' Week 9 bye. However, Floyd is likely back in the good graces of Arians after his first 100-yard game of the campaign and no real drop issues to speak of. In fact, Floyd kick-started the team's first touchdown drive with a diving 35-yard snag early in the first quarter. With the tone set, he hauled in each of his next four targets, culminating with a leaping 26-yarder along the sideline during the second play of Arizona's game-winning drive. He also happened to leave the contest following a hard landing, and while he was subsequently targeted before Chandler Catanzaro's 34-yard field goal, Floyd's upcoming practice reps could be hindered if Fitzgerald's comment reflects reality.

Floyd logged 29 of the Cardinals' 71 offensive snaps in Sunday's defeat at Carolina, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.
EDGE Analysis
Although Floyd played through a hamstring injury for the second consecutive contest, he posted his second blank game line in an otherwise underwhelming season. In fact, Sunday's outing marked his first of the campaign without so much as a target, as JJ Nelson (12 targets), Larry Fitzgerald (11), and David Johnson (nine) dominated quarterback Carson Palmer's attention. During post-game media availability, head coach Bruce Arians termed Nelson the Cardinals' "No. 2 WR" at the moment, according to Kyle Odegard of the team's official site. As a result, Floyd and John Brown (hamstring) appear to have waning value as pass-catchers within Arians' scheme.

Floyd (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday at Carolina, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Among Cardinals wide receivers on the injury front this week, Floyd was a candidate to sit out, but his hamstring concern won't stop him from being available, at the very least, to Carson Palmer and the passing attack. However, he's notably received less snaps this year than past seasons -- 68 percent of those on offense -- so it wouldn't surprise if he's active in the event of an emergency.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Floyd (hamstring) has an an "uphill battle" to play Sunday against the Panthers.
EDGE Analysis
Fortunately for those considering Floyd, or fellow wideout J.J. Nelson, who would presumably see added snaps if Floyd is limited or out Sunday, the Cardinals kick off at 1:00 ET in Week 8.

Floyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Carolina, Darren Urban of azcardinals.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Floyd played through the injury in last week's overtime game against Seattle, helping the Cardinals cope with other injuries at his position. He then missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but his Friday return as a limited participant suggests he could be ready by Sunday. Meanwhile, John Brown (hamstring) is also listed as questionable, but his availability seems to be much less of a question than Floyd's. Should one of the two end up sitting, J.J. Nelson would likely get most of the snaps in three-wide sets.

Floyd (hamstring) was present at the portion of Friday's practice available to the media, Mike Jurecki of FOX Sports 910 reports.
EDGE Analysis
Absent the previous two days, Floyd will return to practice in some capacity ahead of a favorable matchup in Carolina. The extent of his participation may not be known until later in the afternoon, but this at least gives him some shot to play in Sunday's game. Floyd did play through the same hamstring injury for much of last week's overtime contest against Seattle, though it's possible he would've been removed if the Arizona offense hadn't already been decimated by wide receiver injuries.

Floyd (hamstring) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Embroiled in a disappointing campaign, Floyd has logged 68 percent of the Cardinals' offensive snaps, which has pushed him to fourth on the team in receptions, targets, and yards. Additionally, he boasts a measly 43-percent catch rate, well below his career mark of 54 percent. He's made up for it with three trips to the end zone, but with a hamstring injury in tow, he could take a back seat to healthier options, namely Larry Fitzgerald, David Johnson, and JJ Nelson.

Head coach Bruce Arians said Floyd (hamstring) should be okay, after the wideout played through injury for most of Sunday's game against Seattle, Darren Urban of azcardinals.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
With the Cardinals already hit hard by injuries at wide receiver, Floyd played through a hamstring injury in the second half and overtime of Sunday's 6-6 tie. The issue may have contributed to Floyd's modest total of seven targets, which was surprisingly low considering John Brown (leg) and Jaron Brown (knee) were unavailable in a game that featured 49 pass attempts from Carson Palmer. While John Brown is expected to return to practice this week, Jaron Brown is out for the year with a torn ACL. Depending on the former's ability to handle a full workload, Floyd may drop back to the No. 3 role. The Arizona wideout group still requires close watching, with Larry Fitzgerald the only key member free of an injury concern.

Floyd caught five of seven targets for 65 yards in Sunday's 6-6 tie with Seattle.
EDGE Analysis
Previously demoted to a part-time role, Floyd got more playing time than usual Sunday, as John Brown (leg) was inactive and Jaron Brown (knee) made an early exit. The extra snaps, in combination with the overtime period, helped Floyd reach five receptions for the first time all year while also matching his season-high mark in yards. He still accounted for just 14.3 percent of his team's 49 targets, tied with J.J. Nelson for a distant third behind Larry Fitzgerald (14) and David Johnson (13). Should one of both of the Browns miss another game, Floyd could again take on extra snaps in Week 8 against Carolina.
