Cardinals' Floyd returns from finger injuries for opener

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona Cardinals receiver Michael Floyd is active for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints after missing nearly all of training camp with three dislocated fingers.

Tight ends Jermaine Gresham and Troy Niklas are active after being questionable with hamstring injuries.

Floyd needed surgery to put his fingers back in place after being injured on Aug. 5 and returned to practice on a limited basis this week.

Running back C.J. Spiller, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, cornerback Keenan Lewis and safety Jairus Byrd were among the Saints inactives.
