    Floyd suffered a neck injury during Sunday’s game in Philadelphia. In the third quarter, Floyd was sandwiched between two Eagles’ players, compressing his neck. He was taken off the field on a stretcher.

    Floyd will miss some playing time, but is expected to be fine.

    On Monday, Floyd thanked his fans for all their prayers.

    "Even on the Eagles sideline, they were praying for me, so it feels good,” he said.

    “It feels like those prayers were answered because I could be in a wheelchair right now, but I’m up and walking and ready to get better every day.”

    "He's doing fine. All the tests right now look good. I'll leave it at that and update you as time goes on," Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said at Monday's media briefing.

    The Chargers beat the Eagles 33-30. Floyd had five catches for 102 yards before the injury.
