'No timeline' for Michael Floyd's odd injury

PFT - [Full Article]

Initial reports estimated Michael Floyd would be out three-to-five weeks, but Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Friday, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN, that Floyd’s injury was a “unique” one. As a result, there’s no timetable right now for his return and that leaves his status for the opening weeks of the season in some doubt.

Arians said that Floyd was injured when his fingers bent back while landing on a ball, something that the coach hasn’t seen in his 40 years in the game. Floyd had surgery to repair the injured fingers on Wednesday.

The Cardinals will rely on Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown as their top receivers while Floyd is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Impact: 

John Brown gets a bump in value with the news that Floyd's return is up in the air. Jaron Brown figures to see the biggest increase in playing time if Floyd misses any games.
