Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd has returned to practice two weeks after straining his right knee in a collision with cornerback Shareece Wright.
Floyd says it was nice to be on the field with his teammates rather than doing work on the side. He caught passes from Philip Rivers during individual drills and says he was in and out of team drills.
Floyd hopes to be able to play in the season opener Sept. 9 against Houston.
Also Monday, the Chargers placed linebacker Melvin Ingram (knee) on the physically unable to perform list. Ingram, a first-round draft pick in 2012 who had reconstructive knee surgery in May, will miss at least the first six weeks of the season. He is eligible to begin practicing any time after Week 6 through Week 11.
Rookie linebacker Manti Te'o continues to wear a walking boot to protect his sprained right foot.

BEST OF MAXIM
There has been a lot of speculation about San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Coming off his worst two seasons in his NFL career, many football experts feel that his time in the NFL is almost over. He has been turning the ball over at a much higher rate then in the past and he hasn’t been able to lead San Diego to success.

We’ve seen some pretty unbelievable plays during the 2013 NFL preseason. But the double fumble touchdown that happened late in the second quarter of Saturday night’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and San Diego Chargers may be the craziest scoring play in NFL history. Chargers running back Ryan Mathews took the handoff at the one-yard line and promptly leaped into the pile...

Revisiting a classic in honor of Madden Day
The Chargers were gifted one of the craziest touchdowns of the 2013 NFL preseason on a double fumble against the Cardinals this weekend. In the second quarter of the San Diego-Arizona matchup on Saturday night, Chargers running back Ryan Mathews fumbled the ball at the goal line and the ball was recovered by Cardinals safety Rashad Johnson, who then (for some reason) attempted...
Manti Te'o hopes he's given the boot to a walking boot he's worn on his sprained right foot since Aug. 9, the day after the San Diego Chargers' exhibition opener.
The rookie linebacker was out of the boot Tuesday, although he hasn't been cleared to practice.
''It's a big step for me to take that boot off and see where it goes from there,''...
Ryan Mathews is off and running this preseason, and Jonathan Cooper's season could be over before it really began. Mathews, slowed by two broken collarbones a year ago, carried 14 times for 57 yards and a TD, and the Chargers beat the mistake-prone Cardinals 24-7 for their first preseason victory under new coach Mike McCoy.
This San Diego Chargers touchdown from Saturday night's preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals is one of the wildest you will ever see.
The San Diego Chargers haven’t made the playoffs since 2009. Quarterback Philip Rivers carries much of the blame turning over the ball 47 times over the last two season. There has been a lot of talk this offseason that the Chargers brought in Mike McCoy and Ken Wisenhunt to fix Rivers.
Via Sam Farmer of the LA Times, Rivers says he has heard the talk and doesn’t get it.
Philip Rivers has to feel like that rapper that all of sudden fell off.
Rivers, who was once considered somewhere among the league’s elite signal callers, is now fighting to prove that he still even belongs in the NFL.
During a conversation with the L.A. Times, Rivers talked about a lot of the things that frustrated him. The one that drove him crazy the most, was “people saying...
