Floyd on target to return

Notre Dame receiver Michael Floyd said he practiced in full pads and at full speed Tuesday.

The junior didn't practice last week because of a hamstring injury, and after missing last Saturday's game, he said he will play this weekend against Tulsa.

"I think my chances are real high for Saturday," Floyd said Wednesday. "I think I did more than the doctors wanted me to do, but my body felt good so that's what I did."

Quarterback Dayne Crist said he thought Floyd looked good at practice.

"There was nothing (Tuesday) that I said, 'Aw, man, that's not the same Mike,'" Crist said.
