Found August 14, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
Malcom Floyd had a smile on his face at San Diego Chargers training camp Tuesday. It was as good a sign as any that the wide receiver had escaped disaster. The Chargers reportedly feared Floyd had suffered a season-ending knee injury after he crumpled to the turf during practice Monday. It would have been a calamitous setback for the Chargers who still are dealing with the fallout of Danario Alexander's torn ACL a week earlier. An initial MRI of Floyd's injury revealed a strain with more tests to come. Floyd knows he lucked out. "It could have been worse. ... (The knee) feels better than it did yesterday" Floyd told reporters Tuesday via U-T San Diego. "Fortunately I kind of dodged a bullet."
