Floyd (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Per Cronin, Floyd did some light individual work at Friday's practice, after sitting out entirely Wednesday and Thursday. His inability to participate in team work suggests he's on the wrong side of questionable, but the Vikings could take a more aggressive approach now that Stefon Diggs (groin) has been ruled out. Floyd logged 38 snaps in Sunday's 23-10 win over the Packers, but he caught just one pass for five yards on three targets. Should Floyd miss the upcoming contest, Laquon Treadwell likely would take on a heavy snap count, with Jarius Wright serving as the No. 3 receiver.
With two of the Vikings' top three wideouts in Floyd and Stefon Diggs (groin) having missed both of the first two practices of the week, the team could be short on depth at the position during Sunday's game against the Ravens. Floyd, who entered the starting lineup in Diggs' stead in the Week 6 win over the Packers, caught just one pass for five yards before departing that contest with the calf injury. Even if Diggs remains unavailable and Floyd is able to rally and suit up Sunday, Floyd could surrender a starting role to Laquon Treadwell, who had something of a breakout performance against Green Bay with three catches for 51 yards.
Floyd (calf) didn't participate in practice Wednesday.
The wide receiver's room in Minnesota is a bit banged up at the moment, as both Floyd and Stefon Diggs (groin) focused on rehabbing injuries instead of taking part in the first practice of the week. With Diggs out of the lineup Sunday against the Packers, Floyd started but hauled in just one of three passes for five yards before departing with a calf concern. The combination of a lack of production and compromised health don't make Floyd an appealing option, especially once Diggs is cleared to play again.
Floyd (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers.
Floyd started Sunday's game since Stefon Diggs (groin) was out and hauled in one reception for just five yards before his exit. Jarius Wright will gain more snaps in Floyd's absence.
Floyd will start Sunday's game against the Packers with Stefon Diggs (groin) sidelined, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
After completing a four-game suspension, Floyd hauled in his only target for 19 yards while playing 46 percent of the offensive snaps in his Vikings debut Monday in Chicago. In Diggs' absence, expect Floyd's workload to increase, though he may still work in a rotation with Laquon Treadwell as the No. 2 wide receiver behind Adam Thielen.
