It's looking more and more like the Arizona Cardinals will have wide receiver Michael Floyd back on the field when the 8-2 Red Birds face the San Francisco 49ers (3-7) this afternoon at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.
The University of Notre Dame product missed last week's contest against Cincinnati with a hamstring issue.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians held his breath when Floyd had to chase and extend for a couple of passes during Friday’s team practice. However, Arians was eventually able to exhale.
Floyd, who has 27 receptions for 432 yards and five touchdowns this season, has “progressed nicely,” Arians stated.
Floyd feels he’s ready to play today against the rival Niners in a NFC West clash. The Red Birds are 10-point favorites.
“I felt good,” he said via espn.com. “I’m feeling like I have been when I’m healthy and the legs are feeling good.”
The only two Cardinals ruled out of today's game are defensive tackles Frostee Rucker (ankle) and Cory Redding (ankle). Everyone else on the injury report, including right guard Jonathan Cooper, was limited Friday. Cornerback Patrick Peterson, a new father of a baby girl on Thanksgiving, returned to practice Friday and was returning punts during the open portion.Read more... Join the Conversation...
