Breath San Diego.
Michael Gehlken of the U-T San Diego reports that a MRI done on San Diego receiver Malcom Floyd reveals a sprain in his right knee. While a strain still isn’t good news, this is considered good news because there was preliminary reports that believed that Floyd might of had a torn ACL.
Initial MRI results show a sprain for Malcom Floyd. More testing coming Tuesday.

Floyd was carted off the field on Monday afternoon after colliding with cornerback Shareece Wright.
Losing Floyd would of been devastating to the Chargers. He led the team in catches(56) in 2012.
Heading into training camp, it was the only position the team felt they had good depth at. If they had lost Floyd a week after losing Denario Alexander to a torn ACL, that would of left the team with rookie Keenan Allen and 3rd year player Vincent Brown starting on the outside.
