Vikings WR Michael Floyd can now shed the ankle monitor.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports, Floyd told the court:
“Due to the high impact sport, attempting to run and high velocity tackling, the ankle device itself could be damaged and more importantly cause severe damage to the ankle resulting in possible broken bones.”
The court agreed with the Vikings wide receiver. Floyd was ordered to submit to random breath testing on a GPS-enabled device.
Floyd, who pleaded guilty to one count of extreme DUI, was sentenced to 24 days in jail, and 96 days of house arrest back in February.
Floyd’s house arrest ends June 16.
