Michael Floyd has successful surgery on hand

How bad was his injury?

There was a lot of uncertainty and inconsistency in the reports following Michael Floyd's exit from practice on Wednesday with a hand injury. The time Floyd was expected to miss was first 10-12 weeks, then about six weeks and then about a month.

There won't likely be any real news until Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians addresses the media on Friday. The team has a day off Thursday.

However, one thing we do know, thanks to Floyd himself, is he had surgery to repair whatever his injury was, whether it was a dislocation, a fracture or maybe both.

He shared a photo on Instagram to say his surgery was successful.

Surgery went well as expected. Thanks everyone for the love and support.

Now we all are left to wait. In the meantime, Jaron Brown will move up into a significant role as the team's third receiver the rest of camp and the preseason, while Brittan Golden and fifth round draft pick J.J. Nelson will battle for the spot behind Brown.
