The Cardinals are looking to take hold of the NFC West in 2015, but may be a man down when they begin their quest in Week 1.
Arizona starting receiver Michael Floyd broke three fingers and will likely miss the team's opener, according to multiple reports.
The injury to his left hand will reportedly sideline him for six weeks.
Floyd, a 6-foot-3 pass catcher that was the No. 13 overall pick in 2012, was expected to make a signifcant leap this year.
He has 157 career receptions for 2,444 yards and 13 touchdowns, including a 1,000-yard campaign in 2013.
Floyd has 604 yards and four touchdowns against the division rival 49ers over six contests.
The Cardinals play the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.
They travel to Chicago to play the Bears in Week 2 and return home to host the 49ers in Week 3.

Michael Floyd will miss roughly six weeks I'm told with three broken fingers on left hand. Big, big part of the AZ offense. Injured today— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) August 5, 2015
