Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd has a strained knee, the club said on its website Monday night.

Per Chargers.com, there wasn’t any other information on the injury.

A strain is an injury to a tendon or muscle, not a ligament.

The Chargers’ top wide receiver in 2012, the 31-year-old Floyd was injured in practice earlier on Monday and was taken off the field via cart.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Floyd has been a field-stretching threat in San Diego’s offense in recent seasons. He’s had at least 12 catches of 20 yards or more in the last four campaigns.

In 2012, Floyd started a career-best 14 games, catching 56 passes for 814 yards and five touchdowns.

    In other words don’t touch Rivers in FF this year.

    Wow, lucked out.

    That would have been a huge blow. After Alexander and Floyd, it’s a huge drop off.

    you know what happens to running backs when they hit 30. ..

  15. youarejealousof6rings says: Aug 13, 2013 7:00 AM

    Lie.

    The guy has played in a weak division his whole career. The Jags showed up every now and then but generally it was a cakewalk. Then as soon as the Texans become a legitimate team Freeney and Peyton migrate to the weakest division in the NFL. It doesn’t surprise me Freeney doesn’t want to play against a tough division.

    @bigbeachball: Why would you take the time to post such nonsense? Who cares (besides chargers fan) about regular season wins?

    Playoff victories are what matter, everything else is fluff and fill.

    Go Raiders

    It’s all about the rings and you jokers don’t have any.

    Choo choo!
