Floyd (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, ESPN reports.
Floyd only appeared in one game this season after going under the knife in mid-September to clean up his knee. While the Vikings held out hope their former first-rounder would return to full strength at some point this season, they ultimately decided it wasn't worth reserving a roster spot any longer for his potential return. Fellow defensive tackle Toby Johnson was called up from the practice squad in a corresponding move.
Floyd (knee) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN reports.
Floyd was unable to return to practice this week. His next chance to play will come in Week 14 against the Jaguars.
Floyd (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Lions, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.
Floyd is set to miss another game as his lengthy absence continues, while Tom Johnson (illness) will be good to go and provide depth at defensive tackle.
Floyd (knee) is listed as inactive for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals.
Floyd's knee issue will keep him sidelined for yet another week, while Tom Johnson will continue to serve as the backup defensive tackle while Linval Joseph and Shamar Stephen draw the start.
