Michael Floyd had two catches for 31 yards early against Houston and looked poised for a big game, but suffered an AC sprain of his right shoulder in the first quarter and didn’t return.
HC Bruce Arians said he expects Floyd to be ready for next week’s game against the Jaguars.
After not hearing a lot from Andre Roberts this year, he more than filled in as the No. 2 receiver alongside Fitzgerald. Roberts had a team-high five catches for 72 yards and the fourth-quarter score, which ended up being the difference in the victory.
Larry Fitzgerald ACTIVE for Cardinals

It could be a sign that the Cards are worried about the status of Fitzgerald for Sunday's game. It presents a problem for owners in that the Cards play in the 4 p.m. game which likely means not knowing Fitzgerald's status until 3 p.m. Make sure you have a backup plan in case he doesn't play. Michael Floyd and Andre Roberts likely see a bump up if Fitz is held out.
Arians: Michael Floyd has 'improved dramatically' since minicamp
Thursday, August 22, 2013, 10:24am
"He has improved dramatically from the first minicamp to now," he said Monday. "Route running, his understanding of concepts, hot (reads), the whole package.
"He's bought in. He's playing two to three different positions. I'm really pleased with where he's at right now."
Once again, the team's quarterback is seeing much of the same.
"He's still young," said Carson Palmer. "That's what you don't realize about Mike, because he is very mature for his age, but he seems like he's in year four or five. He's only in year two."

Floyd is considered a bust-out candidate this season but seems to be off to a slow start. However, there is still plenty of potential there, especially in a decent enough QB situation with Carson Palmer, that Floyd is worth a late round pick as a WR4 on your roster.

Last year’s No. 1 draft pick looked better at the end of last season but more importantly clearly had a better handle on himself and his role this offseason – even with a brand-new offense. Floyd has been an important target during OTAs and minicamp and there is little question the coaches are prepping him to take on a large load.
WR Larry Fitzgerald isn’t going anywhere, but with Carson Palmer behind center and Fitz drawing the defense, Floyd has the potential to have a pretty big season under HC Bruce Arians’ offensive scheme.
Palmer and Arians should give a boost in value to the Cards' weapons, Floyd included. He currently sits at 43rd on our WR list with an ADP of the 11th round. We do see some sleeper potential there for Floyd this season.
Justin Blackmon has groin surgery

Even with a four-game suspension, Blackmon is being drafted ahead of the likes of Anquan Boldin, Lance Moore and Michael Floyd. He certainly could produce solid numbers once he returns in Week 5, but his suspension should be affecting his draft stock more than it is. A four-game suspension is more than a quarter of the fantasy football season.

"In three-receiver sets Andre Roberts will get plenty of work. But Floyd has impressed coaches (and bystanders like myself) with his efforts this offseason. He seems primed for a leap in year two. Can he challenge Fitz? If the Cards can grind out more first downs, I can see Floyd having a big year."
Arians: WR Michael Floyd "can have a breakout year"
Tuesday, June 11, 2013, 12:58pm
“I am really happy with him,” Arians said. “I see him making leaps and bounds getting better. He’s very serious about what he does. He doesn’t like to make mistakes. He’s totally bought in and if he just continues to improve his fundamentals he’s another guy who can have a breakout year.”
Click through to read the full article, which describes how Larry Fitzgerald has taken Floyd under his wing. We are relatively high on Floyd; he's #43 in our standard WR rankings even though he's been coming off the board in the 45-55 range in early drafts. He averaged 54 yards in his last eight games, including an 8-166-1 performance in Week 17 against the 49ers. Assuming he sees starter's snaps, he'll be a sleeper with Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians in town.
