NFL Injury Report:
It was reported yesterday that no matter the diagnosis of
San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd’s knee injury, he would likely
miss the remaining of training camp. While that could prove true, an MRI
revealed yesterday that Floyd is not dealing with a season-ending ACL injury as
was previously feared, according to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego.
Floyd’s status for Week 1 of the regular season remains up
in the air, as head coach Mike McCoy said the team will take things day by day.
Still, Floyd was extremely relieved when speaking with reporters yesterday, noting
that he had “dodged a bullet.”
“It was scary," Floyd said. "You think about your
family, think about your kids and think about your career. ... That stuff goes
through your head when you go through something like that. But I’m here
walking, and it’s something we’re going to take day by day."
Floyd sustained his knee injury during practice, and after
crumpling to the ground he had to be carted off the field. San Diego thought
the worst after watching fellow wide receiver Danario Alexander go down for the
season with an ACL injury.
Instead, it appears Floyd should be able to return early
this regular season, if not for the team’s opening contest.
