San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd 'unlikely' to play in Week Three


During yesterday’s game between the San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles, a scary scene took place when Bolts wide receiver Malcom Floyd‘s neck compressed in a nasty hit from Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans.

Floyd, who remained on the ground for around ten minutes was strapped to a backboard and taken off the field via cart, where he was immediately transported to a local hospital for testing by ambulance.

Thankfully, all tests checked out okay and Floyd was able to fly home with the Chargers where he will undergo further testing this week.

Considering the nature of the injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who appeared on NFL Live Monday afternoon, it’s unlikely that Floyd will play in Week Three.

There’s been no word as to when Floyd will be expected to see the field again, so, Eddie Royal should continue to see the vast majority of the Chargers’ targets. Rookie Keenan Allen took Floyd’s ‘X’ spot in the rotation and will likely continue to do so until Floyd is able to return.
