Malcom Floyd cleared for full return

When Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd was carted off the field after suffering a serious neck injury last season, there was doubt about whether or not he’d be able to play football again.

That doubt subsided a bit this offseason as Floyd made progress in his recovery and signs were pointing toward an expected return for the 2014 season earlier this month. Those signs are now impossible to miss as Floyd has been cleared for all football activities.

“Cleared for contact. Cleared for everything. There are no risks. I’m good to go,” Floyd said as the Chargers started OTAs on Tuesday, via Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego.

Floyd said he wasn’t tentative during a practice that saw him working with the first team offense. The Chargers didn’t add a clear-cut starter across from Keenan Allen, so Floyd’s a good bet to stay there if his neck is sound and his production hasn’t slipped because of the injury or inactivity.

    M80 is cleared for a career year with some fresh legs. Is there any new info on Denario Alexander?

    Hope he stays healthy. Neck injuries are scary.

    He has been catching passes from Rivers since they were both on the second team. You can’t help but pull for this guy. You want find a nicer or more humble guy in the league.

    Things aren’t looking good for Denario Alexander.
    Ted Telesco spoke of him during the season ticket holder conference call. He said they had let his contract expire, and that he was an excellent young man, but had not shown enough improvement from his injuries.

    This guy could tear his ACL signing a new contract.

    He’s made of glass. He’ll have one or two big games and take the next 4 off.

    That isn’t to say I’m not appreciative of his services, but it’s a forgone conclusion he will be injured at one or several points throughout the coming season.
