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.
