Gronk's guy. RT @MikeGarafolo: Malcom Floyd's second opinion @RapSheet referenced will be with noted spine specialist Robert Watkins.

The injury looked pretty bad on the field and it sounds like it could be a while till we get Malcom back. He will definitely be out for week 3 and could be out for a lot longer.

With Floyd out, it will be up to the youngsters to step up. Eddie Royal and Antonio Gates are already doing their parts, but we need someone to stretch the field like Malcom was doing. Vincent Brown will need to start making an impact and the rookie Keenan Allen will have to step in and produce. Seyi Ajirotutu could see a lot of playing time as well in Malcom’s absence.

The Chargers have already used their spot on the IR with designation to return on Melvin Ingram. If Malcom were to miss any significant amount of time, he would be burning up a roster spot. Hopefully all things are good.
