Michael Floyd questionable with hamstring injury, will be game-time decision

TEMPE, Ariz. -- A tweaked hamstring kept Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd out of practice for a second straight day on Friday, putting his status for Sunday’s game at Atlanta in jeopardy.

Even though Floyd was listed as questionable on the Cardinals’ final injury report of the week, he will be a game-time decision, coach Bruce Arians said after Friday’s practice. Floyd suffered the injury Thursday.

“We’ll see how it goes,” Arians said. “He’s bounced back from less -- or actually more -- so we’ll see how it goes on Sunday when we get him out there.”

The Cardinals added insurance to their roster Friday afternoon in case Floyd can’t play Sunday. They promoted 6-foot-4 wide receiver Marquis Bundy from the practice squad, while releasing 5-9 receiver Chris Hubert.

Floyd was among eight players listed as questionable. The others: guard Earl Watford (shoulder), defensive tackle Ed Stinson (hip), defensive tackle Corey Peters (foot), safety Tyrann Mathieu (shoulder), wide receiver Brittan Golden (groin), safety Christian Bryant (groin) and cornerback Justin Bethel (foot/knee).

Arians said Mathieu, who has not played since he suffered a shoulder subluxation in Week 8 at Carolina, “looked fast” in Friday’s practice. “He looked really good,” said the coach, who had said Wednesday that Mathieu will play. “Only he knows how he feels.”

The time off for Mathieu has not only helped his shoulder heal but also helped him regain confidence in his surgically-repaired right knee.

“He’s picking off balls in practice that he didn’t do earlier in September,” Arians said.
