Floyd returns to practice for Chargers

Good news, Chargers fans.  The journeyman receiver who has become the No. 1 wideout by default has returned to practice two weeks after injuring his knee.


Veteran Malcom Floyd, whose nine-year career has never resulted in a 900-yard season, joined the team Monday after banging the knee in a collision with cornerback Shareece Floyd.

“He is coming along good,” coach Mike McCoy told reporters, via quotes distributed by the team.  “He was out there for some of our individual periods and I think he snuck in to the team period for a rep or two.  He is doing a nice job and we will take it one day at a time.  We’ll do some individual work with him and Philip [Rivers].  He ran a lot last week, so we’ll keep moving forward with him.”

McCoy was noncommittal regarding Floyd’s availability for Week One.

“I think he should be, but we’ll see how he progresses during practice,” McCoy said.

The Chargers’ other starting wideout — Eddie Royal — continues to be out with a concussion.

The fact that Floyd and Royal are Philip Rivers‘ starting wideouts could make the veteran quarterback feel like he has a concussion, too.

    Floyd has spent ALL of his career as a San Diego Charger, therefore the term ‘journeyman’ is not applicable. I suggest you learn what terms and words mean before you attempt to try ‘writing’ for a profession.

    Malcolm Floyd is not nearly as bad as you make him seem here.

    Is taking cheap shots at players really necessary? I mean seriously? I don’t see you out there jimmy.

    I didn’t know journeymen played for one team throughout their whole career.

    Floyd and Eddie royal are less important than developing Vincent Brown. This preseason, it’s been a shame to watch Rivers continue to look for Gates instead of trying to connect with brown and develop chemistry with him. Brown’s the most talented receiver on the team and with Floyd hurting, he needs targets.

    How can a guy be a journeyman if he has been with the same team his entire nfl career? Shareece Wright is the corner ….jeese….

    Does he also return to being terrible

    Huh? Eddie Royal isn’t a starter. He only plays the slot on 3 WR sets. Vincent Brown is the opposite side starter.

    In SD his whole career = not a journeyman

    In a league plagued with jerks, you take a dig at Malcolm Floyd? The same WR the Ravens tried to sign away from us? We in SD are damn happy to have this career Charger still with our team. If this guy stays on the field I guarantee he’ll easily surpass 1000 yards and 10 TDs.

    In your haste to dis the Chargers you make two glaring mistakes in a very short article. Get down and give me twenty trainee!

    God you sound like a 12 year old. Floyd is the classiest player on the chargers, not to mention he’s been on the team his whole life, made it as an undrafted free agent, and averages bout 800 yards and 7 touchdowns per year every year. He’s solid.

    He makes some outstanding catches, and never seems afraid to put himself in harm’s way to do so. However, that’s likely why he’s also known as “Fragile Floyd”.

    “The Chargers’ other starting wideout — Eddie Royal — continues to be out with a concussion.”

    I’m glad the Chargers could afford to pay (overpay) Eddie Royal more than the Redskins to not contribute to the offense.

    “Journeyman”, I do not think that word means what you think it means…

  17. crybabyrivers says: Aug 27, 2013 3:29 PM

    Glad Mike had the balls to say it

  18. joetoronto says: Aug 27, 2013 4:49 PM

    Both Charger fans know who he is, so he can’t be a journeyman, Mike.
