Malcolm Floyd injury update: WR takes Chargers team flight home


One of the scariest moments on Sunday’s full schedule of Week Two action came when San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd was sandwiched between two Philadelphia Eagles defenders. Floyd took a shot to the head from Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans and he immediately went to the ground.

Floyd laid motionless for minutes as the medial staff attended to him and it did not look good.

Eventually, Floyd was take off of the field in a stretcher and taken to the local hospital. The good news is that there was almost an immediate update that Floyd was moving all extremities and later in the night we learned even better news.

According to reports, Floyd was released from the hospital and able to join the Chargers on their team flight home.

It is great news to hear after such a frightening moment.

You never like to see players go down with any injury, but when it is to the neck or head it causes even greater concern. Luckily, Floyd is healthy and should be able to play sooner rather than later.
