Michael Floyd expects to play on Sunday


The Cardinals will face the Jaguars on Sunday with a chance to improve their record to 6-4 with a victory.

That mark would have Arizona in the thick of the playoff hunt in the NFC with six games left to play, a position that not many people were predicting and one that will have a better chance of happening if the team’s at full strength offensively this weekend. Wide receiver Michael Floyd said Thursday that he’ll be ready to go after his first practice of the week after injuring the AC joint in his right shoulder last week.

“I feel pretty good, but I think after tomorrow, having two days to get treatment and stuff like that, getting it prepared for the game, it’ll help me out,” Floyd said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com. “Yeah, I’ll play.”

Floyd has settled into the No. 2 receiver role in Arizona this season, catching 36 passes (Larry Fitzgerald has 39) for 464 yards and two touchdowns so far this year. More of the same will give the Cardinals a good shot at a third straight victory and a continued impact on the postseason race.
