San Diego Chargers receiver Malcolm Floyd practiced fully Friday and is expected to return to the lineup for Monday night's game at Jacksonville.
Floyd had been sidelined for the past four games - all losses - due to a hip injury.
He has 19 receptions for 401 yards and one touchdown in seven games this season.
The Chargers' biggest question for their game at Jacksonville on Monday night is at left tackle. Brandyn Dombrowski, who is replacing Pro Bowler Marcus McNeil, wasn't able to practice on Friday because of a sore foot. Dombrowski has been out all week, and it appears that Tyronne Green will start at left tackle against the Jaguars. The Chargers' other options are rookie...

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd stood quietly at his locker, shedding piece after piece of football equipment after a long day of work.
Maybe he meant it sincerely. Maybe he meant it sarcastically.
Given his luck of late, his words Friday were probably a bit of both.
“It's a blessing to make it out of a day's practice healthy,” Floyd said.
If you have Chargers fantasy player, decisions are tough.
This week is not about getting back in the playoff hunt. It is not about saving Norv Turner's job. It is about trying to win a football game, something the Chargers have not done since Oct. 9. Will it finally happen on Monday Night Football? To set the table for this game, we go over team reports, personnel updates and keys to the game.
Change appears imminent in San Diego. A vicious, six-game skid has worn out the fans and placed coach Norv Turner's status on shaky ground. He might not be the only one, as the franchise appears set for a new-look future.
According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, head coach Norv Turner may not be the only member of the San Diego Chargers organization about to lose his job unless the 4-7 franchise enjoys a miraculous turnaround down the stretch. Acee reports that sources are telling him of the increased chances that general manager A.J. Smith could be facing unemployment as well.
The Chargers are still alive -- barely -- in the AFC West. They face the Jaguars, another team in turmoil, on Monday night.
