Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd will be out 3-5 weeks with a hand injury, the Arizona Republic reports.

Floyd, a former football and basketball player at Cretin-Derham Hall High School in St. Paul who won Minnesota's Mr. Football award in 2007, dislocated three fingers in his left hand during Tuesday's training camp practice, the newspaper says.

Floyd posted a photo of himself on Instagram and his left hand is heavily bandaged following successful surgery.

The original report on the injury was much worse; NFL Media's Ian Rapoport believed Floyd broke three fingers, which would have kept him out for 10-12 weeks.

The official Cardinals website says Floyd's timeline for recovery puts his status for the season opener in doubt. Head coach Bruce Arians will explain more during his weekly press conference on Friday.

The Cardinals drafted Floyd out of Notre Dame with the 13th pick in the first round of the 2012 draft.
