There was a scary moment early in the second half of the San Diego Chargers game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd took a big hit from two Eagles defenders and the crown of his helmet went right in to the chest of DeMeco Ryans.
You can watch the hit here.
After staying on the turf for plenty of time as the medical staff examined him, Floyd was placed on a stretcher and removed from the field.
However, there is some good news for the receiver and Chargers.
According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network:
We do NOT know if Malcolm Floyd has been taken to the hospital. But he WAS moving all his extremities.

You never like to see a player go down like that, so it is great to hear the positive news about Floyd’s movement.
Hopefully the injury just looked much worse than it actually was.
It sure looked scary when you saw Floyd’s neck compress and roll, so any good news is welcomed.
