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 Minnesota's active roster on Monday, October 2, following the team's Week 4 clash with the Lions.
Floyd, then with the Arizona Cardinals, was arrested in Scottsdale in December when he was found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle. He had a blood alcohol level of.217 when he was arrested, and on February 17 he was sentenced to 24 days in jail and 96 days under house arrest.
"If I find out you're lying to me, I'm going to cut you [from the team]", Zimmer told the newspaper.
Floyd was sentenced to one day in jail earlier this offseason for failing a series of alcohol tests while on house arrest. He wasn't allowed to drink alcohol once released, but he tested positive recently during an at-home test. But an Arizona judge last month ordered Floyd to serve one day in jail for failing alcohol tests after a traffic stop past year. He blamed kombucha tea for having alcohol in his system.
