The San Diego Chargers placed WR Malcom Floyd (neck) on the season-ending Injured Reserve list Tuesday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Floyd was on the receiving end of a nasty hit in Week 2, and although he's not going to need surgery his season is over. The Bolts have WRs Eddie Royal, Keenan Allen and Vincent Brown, but much of the pass-catching slack is being picked up by apparently revitalized TE Antonio Gates and new-addition RB Danny Woodhead.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) is expected to miss at least a few more games, and the rough estimate is that he'll miss another month of action.
Huddle Up: That leaves the red-hot Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown and rookie Keenan Allen -- likely in that fantasy order -- as Philip Rivers' top targets.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) is not believed to be considering retirement after his latest neck injury. Floyd was also carted off in the preseason with a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Floyd, who is second on the team with 149 yards on only 6 catches, is Philip Rivers' No. 1 deep downfield threat, but don't expect him back any time soon after taking a nasty hit in the Week 2 win over the Eagles.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) had a CT scan on his neck, which came back negative. However, there is no timetable on when he'll be able to return.
Huddle Up: This is good news for Floyd after a terrible-looking injury. Hopefully he heals up quickly, but don't expect him back for at least a couple of weeks.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (neck) will not be hospitalized overnight in Philadelphia, according to a source. He will fly back to San Diego with the team. Floyd left the Week 2 game against the Philadelphia Eagles due to a neck injury, and he was taken by ambulance to a local area hospital.
Huddle Up: This is an excellent sign for Malcom Floyd, whose injury wasn't pretty. If he is well enough to travel already, he might be back sooner than later.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 7, and is listed as probable for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Floyd will start with Vincent Brown Monday night against Houston. However, there are better options at receiver for fantasy owners to pick from in Week 1.

San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said WR Malcom Floyd (knee) participated in individual drills and a few team drills during practice Monday, Aug. 26. McCoy said Floyd should be ready for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: This is good news for Floyd and the Chargers, who have had their receiving corps more than decimated by injuries this preseason. Floyd has the potential for some big games, but he is an injury waiting to happen.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) appears to be on schedule for the start of the regular season.
Huddle Up: The Chargers can certainly use all the help they can get right now. With Danario Alexander out for the year and Eddie Royal sidelined with a bruised lung and concussion, Philip Rivers needs Floyd back on the field as soon as possible. Either way, San Diego's passing game is looking like a risky proposition for fantasy owners.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd won't return until at least Week 1, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Chargers are just happy there's a "pre" in there and that Floyd isn't lost for all of 2013. While he's convalescing, Vincent Brown and Kennan Allen will get extra reps and a real shot at earning playing time.

Updating a previous report, the MRI for San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd show a sprain and not a torn anterior cruciate ligament. However, he will undergo more testing Tuesday, Aug. 13.
Huddle Up: The Chargers have already taken one injury hit to their wide receiving corps, so it has to be viewed as a positive that Floyd hasn't already been ruled out for the season. Meanwhile, Vincent Brown and Keenan Allen have even more opportunity to carve out playing time.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday night, Aug. 12 on the right-knee injury suffered earlier in practice.
Huddle Up: ESPN is reporting that the Chargers fear their 2012 receiving leader (56-814-5) has a torn ACL -- the same injury that shelved fellow starter Danario Alexander last week. Wait for confirmation, but definitely prepare to drop Philip Rivers even further in your QB rankings.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) was carted off the field after suffering an apparent right knee injury during practice Monday, Aug. 12. Floyd was receiving treatment on his knee for a few minutes before being carted off.
Huddle Up: There was no indication on the severity of this injury, but the Bolts and their fans are fearing for the worst after seeing fellow WR Danario Alexander lost for the year to a knee injury last week. In the meantime, Eddie Royal, Vincent Brown and rookie Keenan Allen are getting the WR reps.

San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown (hamstring) is likely to start opposite WR Malcom Floyd following the season-ending injury to WR Danario Alexander (knee). WRs Keenan Allen, Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal are the other receivers in the mix. Brown is not expected to play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, however, after just returning to practice recently after a strained hamstring sidelined him from practice.
Huddle Up: The Alexander injury was a blow to the Chargers offense, but it creates an opportunity for Floyd and/or Brown to step in and fill that void. Brown was already a nice sleeper; if he is a starter in Week 1, he has some serious value. Floyd, meanwhile, has always had potential to score big, but he has dealt with injury issues and inconsistency his whole career.

The San Diego Chargers placed WR Malcom Floyd (ankle) on the season-ending Injured Reserve list Tuesday, Dec. 18, due to the sprained ankle he suffered late in the Week 15 loss against the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: The absence of Floyd -- the Bolts' leader in receptions (56), yards (814) and TDs (5) -- figures to benefit WR Danario Alexander the most down the stretch. Alexander had been on a tear since joining the squad prior to Week 9, but he came up empty handed in Week 15 in one of the more surprising fantasy developments Sunday.

San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd left the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers early due to an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Floyd paced the Chargers with 39 receiving yards on 2 catches, but his fantasy owners will now have to monitor Southern California practice reports to check on the WR's status.
