Cardinals Gather Info On Michael Floyd Situation

Wide receiver faces potential charge after incident Monday morning


Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd makes his way upfield Sunday after a catch in Miami.

Michael Floyd has had a rough year on the field, and with three games left, his status could be impacted by an off-the-field incident.

Coach Bruce Arians said he was "gathering as much information as I can right now" after police said Floyd was found asleep at the wheel of his car early Monday morning in Scottsdale. Police arrested him on a DUI.

During his regular Monday press conference, Arians said the Cardinals were looking at their options. More

information would probably be coming Wednesday, Arians added.

"Right now it's too soon to know exactly what happened and what can be done," Arians said.

The coach did have a chance to talk to Floyd, who simply told Arians the facts of the situation. Arians said any result of the situation – which could include a potential suspension – would come at a later date. Usually the NFL lets the legal matter play out before getting involved.

"We always talk about not being the guy and making the correct decisions," Arians said.

Defensive tackle Calais Campbell said he hadn't yet had a chance to talk to Floyd.

"I love playing with him, he's a great guy, and I just hope he's OK," Campbell said.

Floyd actually had the most yards of any Cardinals' receiver Sunday in Miami, with 18 on two catches. It has not been the year anyone envisioned for Floyd, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. With three games left, Floyd has 33 receptions for 446 yards and four touchdowns. His yards and catches are trending to being career-lows.

J.J. Nelson has been the Cardinals' second-best wideout behind Larry Fitzgerald. John Brown, dealing with his sickle-cell issues and corresponding leg problems, was catchless for a second straight game Sunday in limited snaps.

Running back David Johnson has been the Cardinals' second-best pass catcher, and tight end Jermaine Gresham has emerged of late as well.

Arians was asked about Floyd's Sunday incident being ill-timed, given his impending free agency and down year statistically.

"I don't really have a comment on that one," Arians said. "That's too obvious."
