Malcom Floyd is making steps toward making a return to the football field. He is slowly working to get there. The status is still up in the air, but he has been able to start some running, per Michael Gehlken.
We won’t know if he will be able to get on the football field again, but he is doing what he can in order to get back. According to the report from Gehlken, Floyd still has some pain in the neck, but he has begun some light weight lifting and running. Very small steps right now, but he is moving in the right direction.
The status remains uncertain. We still have to wonder how he will react on the football field if he were to get hit again. With his status in limbo, the Chargers have to prepare to go into the season without his services. The team should have wide receiver high on their priorities this offseason.
Even if Floyd were to return, how reliable can he be? Can the team trust that he can last the whole season? He has never been a player that was known for his durability.
There are a lot of future stars at wide receiver in this upcoming draft. The Chargers should have one of those studs high on their priority list.
