Arizona Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd is cleared to play football
Arizona Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd has cleared out of concussion protocol after hitting his head hard on the turn in Buffalo this past Sunday. He returned to practice in full on Thursday.
What fans would like to see is a full return to the threat we all know he has the potential to be on the field on gameday. So far, we’ve yet to see it in 2016.
Basically it’s the same old story with Floyd. He’s inconsistent. So far through three weeks, Floyd has just nine receptions for 134 yards and one touchdown.
Last week before getting hurt against the Bills, Floyd dropped a couple of passes he should have had. Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians believes Floyd’s dropped pass on the Cardinals first offensive possession last Sunday set the tone for the entire day.
Thinking about it, he’s right. Some think Arians might be making excuses for the loss, which he isn’t, however Floyd’s drop seemed to be the start of everything going downhill for the Cardinals.

So what can we expect this Sunday as the Floyd and the Cardinals face the Los Angeles Rams? Let’s hope more than what he’s been giving so far.
The thing with Floyd is that he is a deep threat and a receiver that plays the sidelines. The Cardinals need his services. His success will take some coverage off of receiver Larry Fitzgerald in the slot. Fitz has started off the season well. He can’t be the only target though that has success.
It seems we’ve been over this storyline in the past with Floyd. It’s make or break time for him. He needs to be able to prove he can be relied upon week after week. He’s also the second-most experienced receiver behind Fitz. Guys like John Brown and Jaron Brown should be looking up to him for leadership.
It’s time to right the ship. Otherwise, it might be time for Floyd to ship out.
