Just when he was beginning to find his groove in the Arizona Cardinals offense, wide receiver Michael Floyd suffered an injury that has his status for this Sunday’s match up against the Jacksonville Jaguars in jeopardy.

Floyd is currently dealing with a sprained A/C joint, which you could also call a separated shoulder, so the team will need to see how he progresses throughout the week in order to decide whether or not to green light him for the game.

If Flyod is unable to go, the Cardinals will be rolling out Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Roberts as the starting wide receivers, with rookie Jaron Brown serving as the No. 3 wideout.

In the four-wide sets, Arizona would be turning to Teddy Williams.

Floyd is currently considered day-to-day for Week 11, so we should learn more on his status by Thursday afternoon.

Even if the team is forced to play the rookie in the slot, they should be set up well against a horrendous Jaguars defense and impressive young talent in Andre Roberts on the outside to compliment Larry Fitzgerald.

    I had a midgrade separation rollerblading once and I was not able to work without pain for 6 weeks. There is no need to rush him back. Let him heel up. Have him ready for Indy.
