Car­di­nals WR Floyd leaves prac­tice with hand in­jury

The Pak Banker - - INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS/SPORTS -

Ari­zona Car­di­nals start­ing wide re­ceiver Michael Floyd left prac­tice with an in­jured left hand. The Car­di­nals didn't re­veal the sever­ity of the in­jury that oc­curred near the goal line at Univer­sity of Phoenix Sta­dium. He was in ob­vi­ous pain when he walked off the field with a trainer. En­ter­ing his fourth NFL sea­son, the 6foot-2, 220-pound Floyd has been the main down­field threat for a tal­ented group of Ari­zona re­ceivers that in­cludes Larry Fitzger­ald and John Brown.

Floyd, a first-round draft - 12th over­all - out of Notre Dame, caught 47 passes for 841 yards and six touch­downs last sea­son, down from his break­out 2012 year, when he caught 65 passes for 1,041 yards and five scores. Jaron Brown took Floyd's place with the first unit the rest of prac­tice. Later in the prac­tice, guard John Fulling­ton was taken off the field in a cart with a left knee in­jury. The Car­di­nals got some good news on in­juries ear­lier in the week when an MRI de­ter­mined that he only hy­per­ex­tended his left knee in prac­tice Tues­day. Humphries, try­ing to un­seat Bobby Massie as start­ing right tackle, was one of 13 play­ers sit­ting out Wed­nes­day's prac­tice with in­juries.
