The Bears aren't going to take the Arizona Cardinals lightly on Sunday, but Chicago isn't expected to have too much trouble with their Week 3 opponent.

Leonard Floyd on track to ditch the club on his hand Sunday against Arizona

Thursday, September 20th, 2018

Floyd met with Bears trainers on Wednesday and it was determined he could practice this week without the protective club wrapped around his hand and fingers, which resembled a Q-Tip. "It will help him," defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said. Fangio has been candid about Floyd being limited by the club in Weeks 1 and 2, and Floyd's snap count decreased from 46 against the Packers (77 percent) to 39 against the Seahawks (59 percent).
