Malcom Floyd will play again this coming season, per Michael Gehlken. His status was up in the air, but it looks like he will be that threat that we were looking for opposite of Keenan Allen in the coming season. Floyd will be part of the depth chart and will be making plays on offense once again.
Great news for the Chargers and for the offense. Floyd was on pace to have an excellent season before he went down with the scary injury. He will have to make that same type of impact again this season.
There were questions on if Floyd would be at more of a risk after that injury, but the doctors have cleared him of any risk and said that he has the same risk of injury as anyone else at the position:
“The doc said … I’m at risk just like anybody else,” Floyd said Monday. “There’s not really a worry. … I’m feeling good. I think I feel like my old self.”
Philip Rivers and Floyd have always had great chemistry on the field. It is the same great chemistry that Antonio Gates and Rivers have had. The same great chemistry that Keenan Allen and Rivers are building on.
With Floyd back on the field for the 2014 season, Allen will have another threat on the field and the team will be more rounded on offense. We can see the reason why Tom Telesco went in a different direction at the position.
Floyd has a couple more seasons left on his contract and he plans to play those 2 seasons out and then finally hang it up.
With an offense of Malcom Floyd, Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates, Ladarius Green and Eddie Royal catching passes from Philip Rivers, we can expect great things. We also have a great group of running backs on the roster as well. This offense will be moving the ball down the field.
