The scar across the middle of Michael Floyd's left hand doesn’t hurt the Arizona Cardinals receiver, but it hasn’t been tested yet.
That will change Wednesday.
Floyd will practice “a little bit” on Wednesday, coach Bruce Arians said, more than a month since Floyd fractured three fingers during training camp on Aug. 5. The fourth-year receiver has caught soft passes over the last few weeks, mainly from team trainers but also a few from quarterback Carson Palmer before Tuesday’s practice.
However, Floyd hasn’t attempted to catch a pass at full velocity.
Floyd said right now it's all mental. The story added it’s not the physical act of catching a football that has Floyd concerned. It’s protecting his left hand, both during a play and while he’s being tackled. Floyd said he’ll be wearing some sort of brace designed by the Cardinals’ training staff, but didn’t know more about it.

Week 4 vs. St. Louis
Carson Palmer is off to a great start to the season. He’s top-10 in yards and yards per pass attempt, and he’s tied with Tom Brady for second in the league with nine touchdown passes. Additionally, he’s only thrown two picks and has the Cardinals looking like one of the best teams in the NFL. Last week, he crushed the division rival 49ers in a lopsided victory with 311 yards, two scores and a pick.
This week, Palmer faces a Rams defense that has been tough against the pass and features one of the best defensive lines in football. However, he’s been so consistent and the Cardinals offense has looked so solid that he should still be considered a solid fantasy starter in all leagues. We have him just outside our top-5 and fantasy owners should continue to ride his success for as long as it lasts.
