Chargers WR Malcom Floyd Appears To Be Headed To IR


It appears that San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd will be heading to the IR with the recent addition of Lavelle Hawkins. Here is a tweet from his agent:

It indicated that Malcom will be back next season. That is a tough loss to a really good guy and player. I wish the best for his recovery and hopefully we get to see him back on the field again. That was a scary collision that he had in the middle of the field.

Malcom Floyd has been a strong player for the Chargers and looked like he was about to break out in that game, but then he was taken out.

Floyd was injured in week 2 against the Philadelphia Eagles when he attempted to catch a pass over the middle and before he went down, he ducked his head and was hit. He had to leave the game on a stretcher and left the stadium in an ambulance.

Best wishes Malcom.

With Malcom headed to the IR list, he will not be eligible to play for the rest of this season. In his absence, Keenan Allen will be the starter opposite of Vincent Brown. Allen stepped up big last week against the Dallas Cowboys and those performances will be needed moving forward.

    damn… get healthy, stay healthy. That move to grab a WR makes a lot more sense now…

    • Nick in PB

      tubbs, I know what you mean. Coming into the season, WR was our strongest area. Then DX goes down. Now Malcom. I like the way the guys that are left are playing. No more injuries please!!!

  • jamfed

    DANG!
    Wish you well M80.

  • Thomas87

    Malcom is a good person if you watch his interviews you can tell he is super down to earth.. Doesn’t let the money get to his head.. Prayers your way man get better soon

  • Gunnar Martin

    Not even designated for return? @#%&!!!!

    Meanwhile, we still can’t trust McCoy when he says somebody is “just fine.”

    • Tazzster

      How is a ‘sprained neck’ a season ending injury. I don’t think we are getting the whole story.

      On the upside. Keenan Allen just got a huge break. Step up youngster, make the Pac-12 proud.

    Boooooo…
    But, I understand. These youngsters are going to be battle trained depth for when the starters come back… look at Mike Harris’ progress from last season.. lol!

  • arnie

    Saw that coming. Neck injuries are nothing to mess with. I wish malcom a speedy recover.

    • Nick in PB

      I did not. I figured he would bounce back like he did with the knee but a neck is not something to mess with. What a shame.

  • afel120

    This might bring back the rumors of the chargers interested in trading for josh Gordon again

  • Nick in PB

    We’ve had injury prone seasons in the past but nothing like we are seeing this year. We’ve lost our 2 best pass rushers for the season (unless Ingram sees time at the end of the year). We’ve lost our 2 best wideouts for the season. Our O Line has already had injury upon injury. Our 2 starting corners are injured. Anybody knocking on wood about now. Let’s hope that’s it for the year. The good news is that our younger players are seeing a lot of playing time. That’s terrible news about Malcom. He is a good guy. SD is rooting for you M80!
