Earlier today, the San Diego Chargers announced wide receiver Malcom Floyd injured himself during practice, though the severity was unknown.
Media at the practice session reported that the injury “looked bad” and we might know why.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there is fear that Floyd has torn his right ACL:
Chargers fear WR Malcom Floyd tore ACL; he’s undergoing MRI tonight. SD already has lost WR Danario Alexander to torn ACL.
As Schefter mentions, fellow wideout Danario Alexander also tore his ACL just a few days ago, so losing Floyd would absolutely cripple the Chargers wide receiver corps.
Ironically enough, both Floyd and Alexander were covered by defensive back Shareece Wright when both injuries occurred, though, Wright’s aggressive played wasn’t the result of either injury.
If Floyd is out for an extended period, it’s expected that Keenan Allen will start opposite Vincent Brown.
MRI results will most likely be released at some point tomorrow morning, though we may know the severity of Floyd’s injury at some point this evening.
