Mike McCoy: Malcom Floyd is “fine”

The Chargers won 33-30 against the Eagles on Sunday and the news got even better for them after the game when coach Mike McCoy announced that wide receiver Malcom Floyd was “fine” after a scary moment when he took a blow to the head while trying to make a catch in the third quarter.

Floyd had his head down with Eagles safety Nate Allen on his back when he ran into DeMeco Ryans coming from the other direction. Floyd went down immediately and stayed down until he was stretchered off the field. Happily, Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego reports that McCoy said that Floyd checked out fine on tests at a local hospital after the injury.

“It was great for the organization to get a win for Malcom,” McCoy said.

Floyd was on his way to a monster day before getting hurt, catching five passes for 102 yards as part of Philip Rivers‘ 419-yard explosion against an overmatched Eagles defense.   With the win and the clean bill of health after it looked like Floyd could have been seriously injured, we imagine he’ll be satisfied with that half day of work.

UPDATE 5:46 p.m. ET: Gehlken adds that Floyd is expected to fly home with the team on Sunday.

    This guy could never be a JET. Santonio would have walked out of their on his own and strapped the helmet on tight and made the next play.

    I’m happy that he’s okay, but I almost have a hard time believing this. Anyone who saw the play knows it looked very ugly.

    Didn’t look fine

    Hope he is fine but hard to trust what McCoy says about injuries. Said same about Te’o in the preseason and has missed the 1st two games.

    NFL considering new rule. No defenders are allowed within 10 yards of any WR.

    I do wish Floyd all the best. Looked pretty bad. Get well soon.

    What the F realmflmaster? The guy was on a stretcher after a vicious hit. Grow up your team sucks

    Glad that Floyd is ok. On the east coast it’s sometimes hard to see games with him on TV, but when I do, he is always getting separation and making great catches. Glad it wasn’t worse.

    To realnflmaster :
    Only an ignorant Jet fan would say something like that.

    This is why we didn’t draft him.

    Glad to hear he is OK, definitely was a scary looking situation.

    Hey realnflmaster !!! That should happen to YOU!

  13. brassknuckles47 says: Sep 15, 2013 6:23 PM

    Hey wearethesteelers! No, the reason the Steelers didnt draft him is because they are STUPID!

    I must say that was an excellent game. I feel good about only losing by 3. Chargers are an underrated team this year. The eagles can take the ball down the field lightning quick and offense is top notch it’s that defense that needs to step up! All in all fun game and we will look to punch out big red and the chiefs next week.

    At least the Eagles are giving it a great effort this year. Beats the bums who just showed up last year and now play elsewhere.

    Great news. Never like to see any one of those guys go down. I have too much respect for every one of them for suiting up every week
