San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd’s season came to an abrupt end when he suffered a neck injury against the Philadelphia Eagles last September.

The injury was severe enough that his career was in jeopardy as well due to the potential risk of serious injury in the future.

However, signs are pointing toward Floyd being able to return the field for the Chargers this fall.

According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Floyd is expected to play for the team next season.

“The doc said … I’m at risk just like anybody else,” Floyd said. “There’s not really a worry. … I’m feeling good. I think I feel like my old self.”

Floyd become a dependable weapon for the Chargers over the last few seasons. Floyd posted a career-high with 856 yards in 2011 and followed it up with a career-high 56 catches in 2012. He caught just six passes in two games before being injured. However, he was averaging nearly 25 yards a catch before the injury.

“I’m really excited to make plays again,” Floyd said. “Hopefully, I can do more this year than I ever have.”

  1. M80 smells what The Rock has been cooking. He can definitely come in and provide some mismatch, especially with Green in the red zone. Bolt Up San Diego

    I better be seeing more Blue And Gold at the Murph this season. Past few seasons have been borderline pathetic with fan support at home. Even though everyone that lives in San Diego isn’t actually from here

  2. He’s been a great guy to watch, when he’s been on the field. But unfortunately, that has rarely been the case. When you also consider the damaging hit which took him out of the entire 2013 season, it’s hard to imagine SD keeping him. He should hang them up, and they should focus on finding and developing some more franchise guys for the future.

    I think it just wasn’t meant to be for Floyd. Sorry to say.
