Malcom Floyd Flying Home With the Team Tonight


In a scary sight during the game, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd was hit in the head while going over the middle for a pass and was laid out. He had to leave the game on a stretcher and left the field in an ambulance . It definitely was a scary incident.

Floyd will travel with the team though tonight and will not stay the night in a Philadelphia hospital. That has to be some good news. We still don’t know the status of Floyd and what the exact injury is. We just have to hope that all things will be OK.

Floyd was a playmaker for the Chargers before he left. He stretched the field and opened it wide open for players like Eddie Royal and Antonio Gates to make plays underneath. He is going to be a big player for us this season and we need him healthy.

Before even thinking about football though, I just hope that he is doing well. He was fun to watch today.

    Thank God. However there is no rush. That last time this happened it didn’t turn out so well for Deilman.

    • TheReturnOfMrBlanks

      I was just thinking the same thing about Deilman, what a great win today guys. Get better M80

        I remember as a kid, wrestling, I got bent backwards and heard a snap in my neck. All the wind went out of me and I laied there gasping for breath while I was getting pinned. Afterwards I was fine. Hopefully, that’s something similar to what Malcom felt. Looked bad, no doubt. Hopefully, like his last injury, it wasn’t as bad as it seemed. He was so good today.

    • boltingindiego

      the big difference to me was that no one diagnosed dielman and he kept playing after suffering from the concussion. I thought he would stay in philly for at least till monday maybe tuesday.

      • arnie

        That is the only good difference. I like McCoy. Guy gets injured, no hurry to put him out there, just call up the next player until Malcom is ready to go.

        • boltingindiego

          and the next man did step up in this game allen hopefully he keeps it up.

    • John Alton

      This was a neck injury, not a concussion. You don’t get strapped down to a back board like that for a concussion.

      • arnie

        I Know what it was. The issues as bolingdiego stated Deilman was not checked out.
        All i’m saying is, “better safe, than sorry”.

        • John Alton

          I agree with you. I really was not responding to you, it was boltingindiego. I clicked on the wrong one.

          • arnie

            Oh.

  • Nick in PB

    Well wishes Malcom! Everyone that is a Charger fan with faith, we have your back Malcom! Get well.

  • Gunnar Martin

    Way to go, tough guy. We finished today off great to win it for M80. I just can’t help but think what kind of game he would’ve ended with if he hadn’t gotten injured, considering he already had five catches for 100+ yards in the first half only.

    • arnie

      That is what sucks about the timing of the injury. This is his 8th 100+ receiving yards a game. All of them were in the last 4 seasons. His career high was 213 in a game, he could’ve tied that today. The eagles D did not have an answer for him.

  • John Alton

    Thats good news. M80 flying home with the team. Its good to see a real medical staff not taking any chances with player safety and taking him to the hospital.

  • Cgoodness13

    So glad chow (whatever our last doctors name is) is gone, hope for the best for M80

  • Cgoodness13

    To be honest, I’m so proud of how the team handled the injury to M80, they kept their heads high and played at their all, they showed M80 love before he was carted off and played with purpose, to be honest we were playing hard all day, but i could tell by look in Rivers, Flukers, Johnson’s, etc eyes that they were going to play at 110%. Hope Floyd can get back with his team soon.

    • Nick in PB

      I agree with that. They played inspired the entire game and after the injury, they were not going to quit. This team is creating some toughness that we haven’t seen for a while.

        On offense. The defense has allowed 61 points in two games. Not very impressive. Sharice will be chasing Jackson in his sleep.
