Malcom Floyd was in good spirits, all things considered. Just a day after suffering a gruesome looking neck injury the veteran receiver was walking around the Chargers locker room at their practice facility Monday, albeit in a neck brace.
Floyd left the game on a stretcher after a hard, but clean hit by the Eagles DeMeco Ryans on the first play of the second half.
The gravity of the situation was not lost on Floyd. "I could be in a wheelchair, but I'm up and walking and ready to get better everyday," he said. Chargers head coach Mike McCoy passed along more information in a Monday press conference. "He's doing fine. All the tests right now look good. I'll leave it at that and update you as time goes on," said McCoy. Early reports have Floyd missing a minimum of three weeks.
