San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd still has to wear a neck brace to bed, per Michael Gehlken. He suffered the neck injury at the beginning of the year and was placed on the IR during the season. His status for the coming season is up in the air. His status for the rest of his career is up in the air.

He wants to return to the field and join his teammates. He wants to play football, but the injury could end his career.

“I definitely want to play again,” Floyd, 32, said. “I definitely do. I’m getting better steadily, and if my body allows me to play, I’m going to do it. I’m really excited for our team. I want to add some more firepower. … If not, then yeah, I need to hang it up. It won’t do anything positive. It won’t help out me or the team.” –  UT San Diego

Malcom would do wonders for the football team, but his well-being is the top priority. The fact that he is still wearing a neck brace doesn’t bode well for his future in the game.
