Lost in the tragedy of the last few days, Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd expects to play Saturday against Tulsa.
“I think my chances are real high Saturday,” Floyd said Wednesday. “I just don’t think my hamstring was strong all of the way to where I wanted it to be last week, so I kind of took it easy.”
Last weekend Floyd was a game-time decision, but never touched the field in Notre Dame’s 35-17 loss against Navy, after sitting out the entire week of practice.
Floyd hit the field this Tuesday and participated for most of practice.
“Yesterday was my first practice since I messed up my hamstring,” Floyd said. “The only thing that kind of held me back was just my stamina.”
Floyd’s eagerness to get back on the field was certainly appreciated by quarterback Dayne Crist.
“He’s the best receiver in the country,” Crist said.”Having a guy like that out there making plays is a huge help. Having his presence as a leader, helping the other guys and really bringing those guys along is huge for our offense.”
