San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd has been out of action since suffering a scary neck injury against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2 and that was the last time he will step on to the field in the 2013-14 NFL season.

On Tuesday, the Chargers announced that they have placed the wide receiver on the injured-reserve list which ends his season effective immediately.

From Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network:

Floyd is no stranger to injuries and the latest couldn’t have come at a worse time.

With his guaranteed money on the current contract running out after this season, Floyd could be expendable in the offseason.

The good news is that Floyd should be fully healthy in a few months, after an injury that looked like it may have been career-threatening.

San Diego will have a big decision to make after the season, so they will be paying a close attention to how their wide receivers step up in Floyd’s absence.
