Catching light passes next step in Michael Floyd's recovery

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Michael Floyd has taken the next step in his recovery from three fractured fingers in his left hand: He’s started to catch passes.

But the Arizona Cardinals' wide receiver wasn’t sure when his hand will be well enough return to practice.

"I don’t really know yet," Floyd said. "They never gave me no set date. It’s kinda day-to-day as you can say it.

"I feel good for the most part, but obviously transitioning to practice and into a game is totally different with all the physical contact that you get. We’ll see how it goes."

Floyd caught a few light passes before Tuesday’s practice.

When his hand is ready, Floyd said his most important re-adjustment will be reclaiming his timing with quarterback Carson Palmer. Floyd felt the 11 days before the season opener is enough time to make that happen.

Wednesday will be four weeks out of surgery for Floyd, who said his hand has been responding to his rehab.

"I think I’m doing well with the treatment and all that,” he said, "and following all the directions that the doctors give me."
