Training camp for the San Diego Chargers has been nothing but bad news.

While many teams have dealt with injuries, the Chargers have been among the most hard hit losing every member of their starting receiver corps at some point, some like Danario Alexander for the season.

Losing fellow top wideout Malcom Floyd for the season was also a concern for the Bolts who were extremely worried when the former Wyoming product went down hard during a practice.

Fearing a torn ACL, Floyd underwent a multitude of tests and MRI’s which confirmed nothing more than a knee sprain and the San Diego Union Tribune believes there is a realistic chance that Floyd will see the start come Week 1.

Per the UT:

“It feels better every day,” Floyd said. “No setbacks. … I’m still taking it one day at a time.”

With the loss of Alexander, Floyd is expected to take on the number one receiver duties for the Chargers.

It might be a long season for quarterback Philip Rivers.
