While an initial MRI revealed no damage, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd wanted to get a second opinion. So that’s exactly what he did this afternoon, where he again was told his knee was structurally fine.
Doctors informed Floyd that there is no further damage that can be done to his knee and that playing will simply be a matter of pain tolerance.
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
A 2nd opinion on Chargers WR Malcom Floyd’s knee revealed no structural damage. Time missed will depend on how he feels.
Floyd was already expected to play a large part in the Chargers’ offense this season, but his role grew even larger when top wide receiver Danario Alexander went down with a season ending ACL tear during camp.
There was some initial concern that Floyd suffered the same injury as Alexander, but thankfully that wasn’t the case.
While Floyd will certainly be sidelined for some time to allow the injury to heal, with nearly a month until the Chargers open their season, Floyd will have plenty of time to rest and be ready for Week 1.
