The Arizona Cardinals have had to deal with a number of injuries this preseason. The bright side to that is that they happened early and now players are coming back in time to get some reps in preparation for the regular season.
On one those players is Michael Floyd who will make his preseason debut against the Bengals on Sunday.
Michael Floyd will be a welcome sight on the field Sunday as he figures to be a key part of the offense for the Cardinals this season. He had a breakout season for Arizona last season and led the team in receiving yards 1,041 yards. The third year wide-out from Notre Dame looks to continue that success this season and is anxious to get on the field and knock off the rust.
"“I’m feeling good. I’ll be back this week,” said Floyd, who led the Cardinals in receiving yards last season. “My body’s feeling good.” “I would say preseason is all about getting the timing right, and if you’re not out there, that’s time that you lose getting (snaps) with the quarterback,” he said.“It kind of sucks being on the sideline and watching things happen, and knowing you could be out there making plays and doing good things for your team. But I’m excited to get out there.”"
With both Michael Floyd and superstar Larry Fitzgerald schedule to play on Sunday, Cardinal fans will get a glimpse of what the offense will be capable off against a quality team. However expect the first team reps to be limited as stay healthy is now the main goal for the Cardinals moving forward into the regular season.
