Chargers WR Malcom Floyd Will Be Ready For Week 1

Malcom Floyd will be ready to go for the Houston Texans when the Chargers open up the season. He is back on the practice field today and is starting to get prepped. That is huge for the offense. Malcom Floyd is the team’s top receiver and Philip Rivers is comfortable throwing that football in his direction. We need him to be on the field in order to have a chance at beating the Texans. We need him on the field to move those chains.

It is good to hear that the recovery from the knee injury is going well and that he will be available to play very quickly. He won’t play on Thursday against the 49ers, but he will be ready to go for Monday Night Football.  I am ready to see him jump for those touchdowns all over again. Will be excited to see him back on the field.

    This is a huge relief. At one point I truly thought his season was over with a blown out ACL and here he is a couple weeks later saying he’ll be ready for week one. This is truly awesome

    Side note….we have the 6th best D in the nfl XD

    • Brandon

      I’m very confident in our front seven but Weddle is the only guy in our secondary. I have a feeling we are going to get burned on the deep pass.

        cox has been a stud thus far in the preseason, wright has been solid, both better than cason and jammer easily…with marshall/patrick backups, and between gilchrist/taylor/stuckey, one of those guys has to step up…our backfields looking waaay better than last year…might even be a solid unit.

        • Brandon

          You said it best they have looked good in pre season. That’s not enough for me I need until week six to gather more info on these players.

          • CALiFORNiAkiD

            Give credit were credit is due.
            The secondary has looked outstanding.

      • Ernie Padaon

        I think wright and cox will be alright… They have been solid so far

  • Pels04

    Good news! Anything to help Rivers stay calm/confident

    They are turning in the tape to the league office that shows the hit to the knees that Williams from the Vikings took off some 49er player . They were reviewing it on NFL Network and were saying no reason to drop down to hit the knees as Williams was already going down.
    All the pros say that is a dirty player. They also brought up Swearinger on the Texans and called him a dirty player. with his hit to the knees that likely destroyed Dustin Keller’s career. We have to be prepared for newbies who have no problem ruining a player’s livelihood.

    SF players play dirty and so do the Texans. I wish we could just forfeit the game on Thursday so no one gets hurt and prepare for the Texans.

    • Peter Thompson

      Or, we could just do to them, what we did to the Cards… I like that idea better.. Lol. Charge!!!!

    • Ernie Padaon

      I can’t say that Swearinger is a dirty player off of one hit. He plays hard and hits hard. We had a guy thya played the same way before. Rodney…. Ok, he migh be a little dirty

      • Stefanie Smith

        Hitting the knees is the definition of dirty play. Dustin Keller can vouch for that. He’s a dirty player to intentionally go there.

  • Rob Base

    I’m glad M80 will be ready. He stays healthy all season he just might put up career numbers.
