Cardinals WR Michael Floyd has sprained shoulder


The Arizona Cardinals were enjoying the emergence of wide receiver Michael Floyd, but now he is dealing with a shoulder injury that could keep him out of action a bit longer than expected. At first, the shoulder injury was diagnosed as a bruised shoulder, but now it has been learned that Floyd has a sprained A/C joint.

Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians confirmed the shoulder sprain, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com.

“At first it looked like just a bruised shoulder but I don’t know the difference between a bruise and a sprain,” Arians said. “I think he’s going to want to play. That’s a big part of it.

“If he can’t play it’s a big blow because he’s starting to break out.”

The team is hopeful that Floyd will be able to return to the line up in Week 11, after leaving the last game at the end of the first quarter, but it will all come down to pain tolerance and desire to play.

Luckily, Floyd could make the call that he is ready to go and all he will need is an injection to have him feeling well.
