When San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd went down with a devastating injury in Week Two, there wasn’t a thought on if he’d return this season – it was would he return at all.

Floyd was sandwiched by Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans, a tackle where you could see Floyd’s neck compress as he absorbed the hit. He was down on the field for at least ten minutes before he was placed on a backboard and carted off the field to an awaiting ambulance.

Thankfully Floyd’s injury wasn’t significant enough to force him to stay in Philadelphia and he was allowed to fly home with the team, clearly dodging a bullet from an injury standpoint. Still, Floyd is far from out of the woods yet and according to Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo, it’s likely the Bolts top receiver won’t see any game action for about a month:

And expect Malcom Floyd to miss a few games for the Chargers. Rough estimate right now: a month. Taking it slow, for obvious reasons.

Considering it’s a rough estimate, it could be a touch sooner or it could be a bit later.

Our best wishes to him on a speedy recovery.
