McCoy Says Malcom Floyd Is Doing Fine... But Can We Really Trust McCoy?


The latest word on Malcom Floyd from Coach Mike McCoy is that he is doing fine”

“He’s doing fine,” Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. “All the tests right now look good. It’s great for the organization to go out and get a win for Malcom. I’ll leave it at that and update you as time goes on.”

Malcom left the game with a neck injury after getting hit trying to make a grab in the middle of the field. He was taken off of the field on a stretcher and left the game in an ambulance. He did fly back home with the rest of the team though and it sounds like he is doing alright. I am sure that he has a stiff neck though.

Mike McCoy says that he is doing fine, but what does that really mean? McCoy is not exactly someone that we can trust with his injury analysis. He did call Melvin Ingram’s injury a ding and he could be out for the season. Manti Te’o has been out for a long time with his sprained foot and everyone is questioning if that is legit.

Once Floyd is back on the practice field, then we will know that he is doing alright. Until then, hoping for a speedy recovery.

    I do think that his comment is more relevant than his other injury reports because he actually said something about the tests. It’s great news that all the tests so far look good, and he’s flying back home with the team. I highly doubt he’ll be ready for the Titans game, and he’ll probably be out a bit longer than that. Hopefully we can figure out how to stay competitive for an entire game without him in there.

    I hope M80 is going to be ok. McCoy is so hush hush when it comes to injurys.

          Bill belichick is a genius for it and McCoy gets bashed… Read Arnie’s post.

            not sure where i bashed him for it

            How I read the title was that you are calling McCoy a dick. We all know Floyd got hit and had to get carted off which is serious, and then the title states that “…Can we really trust McCoy?”.. It seems the the title was trying to argue against McCoy and belittle him as a person/HC. Now a few days have passed and we are hearing good things about MF neck and his ability to return.

      I don’t see how what he said is anti-McCoy. Its really the truth that he doesn’t give much information at all when it comes to injured players. But at the same time, he really may not know as much as we think. If he says the tests look good then we just have to take his word.

      never knew i was anti-mccoy… i am just saying that mccoy says nothing about injuries that you can trust ever.

    • NativeSanDiegan

      Nothing Ernie has ever said is anti-McCoy. He’s very pro-McCoy about everything McCoy has brought to the team. It’s fact that McCoy hasn’t been forthcoming re: injuries. Great job Ernie.

    This article is a bit of a stretch…….

    I’m glad Malcolm is OK. Neck injuries can be life threatening. I think it’s time for the Allen to show what he can do.

  • arnie

    You know what he said about DX. Let’s face it, he is being evasive and coy about player injuries and i understand you don’t want to spread the word of how a player is hurt to other teams. I mean screw the media, and us. We don’t need to know the details. All we need to know is a player playing or not, but in his defense, he is right about on thing. He’s not a doctor.

  • TMcC

    I’m sure he means he is doing as fine as he can as sustaining a neck injury haha. Come on now we all know he isn’t going to be back on the field tomorrow. He was moving all limbs and was cleared to fly across country, after seeing that hit, I’m more than happy with “fine” at this point

    Crossing my fingers that he’s alright. I’m not trying to read too deep into any of these statements. We will know when we know. If he was anywhere close to OK to fly back to continue treatment, I figure they would have done it. I’m pretty sure Malcom & the team doctors would want to do that for him, his wife, and his kids (so they didn’t have to fly to the East Coast). I’m sure it was scary enough for them to see him being hauled off in an ambulance like that. My prayers go out to their family. He should take it easy, and come back when it’s time. Glad to hear that the initial tests were positive.
