Floyd has shined bright in Glendale.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd will lineup Sunday versus the Eagles in Philadelphia.

The 24-year-old Floyd, who is flourishing in Bruce Arians’ vertical passing offense, is officially listed as probable with a bummed shoulder.

Taken out of Notre Dame 13th overall in 2012, the former Irishman’s caught 49 balls for 761 yards and three touchdowns over 11 contests.

Establishing numerous school records in South Bend, the 6-foot-2, 220 pound Floyd is a tough and physically imposing athlete who understands the game and thrives on third downs.

Floyd, who is blessed with tremendous hands and able to complete the 40-yard dash in 4.47 seconds, has benefited from playing alongside Carson Palmer.

Despite facing the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers in the brutal NFC West, Arizona’s 7-4 and jockeying for a playoff spot.

Having already supplanted Andre Roberts as an option on the depth chart, Floyd makes it difficult for a defense to double-team the dynamic Larry Fitzgerald.

Accordingly, Floyd’s capitalized on one-on-one isolation routes downfield and become a brilliant playmaker in the Valley of the Sun.

Against a porous Eagles secondary, Michael Floyd will fly as a Cardinal this weekend in the City of Brotherly Love.
