San Diego Chargers Malcom Floyd limited, Steve Williams out for season


San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd returned to a limited practice today according to Tom Krasovic on Twitter.

Floyd did some light jogging and caught some passes on a side field which is a good sign but he may not play in the final two pre-season games for the Chargers. It’s a precaution this team should take, as they have lost a handful of players to season ending injuries early on in camp.

Floyd was diagnosed with a strained right knee earlier this week. The Chargers are going to need Floyd to be healthy this season but could be questionable for the regular season opener against the Houston Texans.

Another player who will be added to that handful of season ending injuries is rookie corner back Steve Williams. Williams tore his pectoral muscle in Thursday nights game against the Chicago Bears.

The Chargers are already a shallow team when it comes to corner back so this is an under the radar loss. Williams was a fifth round pick out of Cal and was having a solid camp. He was projected to make the roster as the Chargers No. 4 corner.

Now that slot could go to Marcus Cromartie or Greg Gatson.
