Minnesota Vikings' Michael Floyd suspended four games

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd

He was ordered by a judge in Arizona to spend a day in jail after failing several alcohol tests, violating the terms of his house arrest.

The former first-round pick out of Notre Dame was released by the Arizona Cardinals two days after being arrested for a DUI charge in Scottsdale in December.

With the start of training camp just over a week away, Zimmer is set to meet with doctors in Cincinnati next week for a final call on whether he'll have to drive back to Minnesota from his offseason home in northern Kentucky, the Pioneer Press reported. Head coach Mike Zimmer said on Thursday that if Floyd is caught lying about the kombucha tea causing the failed test, he would cut the receiver. I don't know how much tea he drank.

Floyd, scheduled to report to training camp July 26, was suspended four game by the National Football League on Friday for violating its substance-abuse policy.?

Floyd will be eligible to return to the Vikings' active roster on Monday, October 2 following the team's October 1 game against the Detroit Lions.

"I don't have any doubt why there'd be skepticism, but he told me that he wasn't (drinking)". He's still eligible to participate in the preseason practices and games, however.

Michael Floyd will have to wait a few extra weeks before making his Minnesota Vikings debut - if he's still on the team come Week 5. He was sentenced to 120 days, which he only served 24 in jail and the remainder under house arrest.

Floyd signed a one-year deal with the Vikes in free agency.
