It seems that things are going well with the injury to Malcom Floyd. He was able to walk up to the podium for his press conference yesterday unassisted without many issues, but he still is going to be cautious about the injury and send in his MRI results to get looked at for a second opinion.

Despite the receiver’s optimism, he will have the results of his MRI sent to other specialists, including Dr. James Andrews, to confirm the initial diagnosis, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder.

The second opinion is just to confirm the initial diagnosis. Sometimes it is difficult to see the tendons, so it will be good to get another pair of eyes on the situation. Even with the initial diagnosis, there is no timetable one when Floyd will return to the field. He definitely will skip the rest of the preseason, but it is unknown if he will be available for week 1 Monday Night against the Houston Texans.  Hopefully the team is at full strength by that time.
