There was good news on the second opinion for Malcom Floyd and his knee strain, there was no structural damage and he is free to come back when he feels ready:

We just have to know how long it will take till he feels ready. When is that knee going to feel good enough for him to get back out on the practice field and then into a regular season game? Will it be the Monday Night Opener against the Houston Texans?

Floyd is a big part of the team’s offense. He has a great chemistry with Philip Rivers and is a threat on 3rd downs and in the red zone. He brings down the football when Philip Rivers throws it up for grabs. He is one of the guys that Philip trusts on offense and he is the number 1 receiver right now. We need him to be healthy this year if we want to compete. We already lost Danario Alexander and can’t afford to be without M80. Good to hear that he will be out there this season.
