San Diego Chargers’ receiver Malcom Floyd strained his knee back on August 12th. It looked so bad that the team feared a torn ACL for it’s starting receiver. Almost two weeks later, the U-T San Diego’s Michael Gehlken is reporting that Floyd is back at practice and is on track to play week one.
Even Floyd himself feared he had torn all the tendons in his knee and that his career was over.
I could have sworn I tore every tendon in my knee,” Floyd said. “I’m really thankful we have a great training staff. They were able to deal with the situation based on their experience. Our team doctor did a great job diagnosing it and treating it immediately to get me back earlier than expected.
The Chargers will need him back. The team lost receiver Danario Alexander for the season when his feared ACL injury turned out to be exactly that. Luckily for Floyd, his career is not over and it looks like he’ll be able to contribute any way he can by week one.
