Malcom Floyd Already Back at Practice for San Diego Chargers
Just two weeks after suffering a scary knee injury that looked like it could be season-threatening, wide receiver Malcom Floyd is back practicing with the San Diego Chargers.
On Monday, Floyd took part mostly in individual drills, but also saw some time in team drills. Earlier this month, the Chargers’ top receiver went down in practice with a knee injury that appeared much more serious than it turned out to be. Initial fears were that he tore his ACL, but the injury turned out to be no more than a knee strain.
The Chargers will work Floyd back into the flow of things slowly as his knee still isn’t 100%. Floyd likely will be held out of the preseason finale against the San Francisco 49ers. However, if things continue going smoothly, Floyd has an excellent chance to return to the field for San Diego’s regular season opener against the Houston Texans.
“When you do have an injury like (this) you just take it one day at a time like we did,” Floyd said. “We’re still taking it one day at a time and just easing me back in there and just being smart about the whole situation.”
The Chargers are taking the right approach with Floyd, who has been quite susceptible to injuries throughout his career and has a history of lower-body injuries. We certainly don’t want the team to rush him back too quickly and risk any setbacks.
Still, the Chargers could certainly use Floyd back as soon as possible. The Chargers lost their other starting receiver Danario Alexander for the season due to a torn ACL suffered a week before Floyd suffered his knee injury. Slot receiver Eddie Royal remains out after suffering a bruised lung and concussion in practice last week. His return date is still unknown. Floyd is the Chargers’ only proven receiver on the outside and will also help stretch the field with his big-play ability.
Though there’s good news regarding Floyd’s injury, we continue to wait for rookie Manti Te’o’s return. Te’o, who got injured before Floyd, still hasn’t returned to practice and is still wearing a walking boot on his sprained foot. Unlike Floyd’s injury which was originally thought to be serious, Te’o’s injury was considered minor from the start yet has forced Te’o out longer.
