Malcom Floyd unlikely to play this week

In the world of the medical professionals who coach football teams for a living “fine” is a fairly unspecific diagnosis.

But even though Chargers coach Mike McCoy used that word in reference to wide receiver Malcom Floyd after he was hauled off on a backboard last night, there might be shades of meaning.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Floyd is unlikely to play this week, despite the initial encouraging signs.

Floyd took a frightening shot to the head during yesterday’s win over the Eagles, but was able to fly home with the team.

He was in the midst of a monster day, with five catches for 102 yards before leaving in the third quarter. But feeling worse a day later is probably expected given the violence of the hit.
