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."
