Malcom Floyd WR SD 1 Day

Floyd, now fully recovered from a career threatening neck injury, has been the MVP of Chargers training camp, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The biggest indicator that Floyd might be all the way back to pre-injury form is his willingness to line up as an inside receiver and catch underneath passes in addition to his typical deep patterns from outside. The Chargers under Mike McCoy like to employ all of the receivers from multiple spots throughout the game, and Floyd has not batted an eye at moving around. A healthy Floyd combined with Keenan Allen and Eddie Royal could form as strong a group of wide receivers as any in the league this year.

Floyd caught two passes for 30 yards on three targets in Saturday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

Seemingly past the scary spinal cord injury he dealt with last season, Floyd is well positioned to reclaim his role as the starting wideout opposite Keenan Allen. Floyd worked in that capacity during Friday's game, as he and Allen were the only wide receivers targeted by Philip Rivers.

The Union-Tribune says Malcom Floyd was the MVP of Chargers' OTAs and minicamp.

The Chargers wanted to test Floyd as he comes off a scary neck injury, so he was usually the most targeted receiver during practices, and "won more than he lost." It's great news for Philip Rivers and the passing game, as last year's No. 2 man Vincent Brown failed to threaten defenses. We know Floyd is very capable of getting down the field on streak routes and making chunk plays. He's on the WR4/5 radar.

Malcom Floyd (neck) is reportedly looking like his old self at offseason practices.

Floyd has somewhat surprisingly gained full clearance off the scary neck injury he sustained in Week 2 last season. As long as he continues on this upward path, he'll be a heavy favorite to start opposite Keenan Allen as a deep-ball specialist. Floyd posted at least 700 yards and five touchdowns in each of the three seasons before his injury.

Malcom Floyd (neck) has been fully cleared.

Floyd ran with the first-team offense in Tuesday's OTAs session. "Cleared for everything," Floyd said. "There are no risks. I'm good to go. ... I'm not tentative. I'm very confident and just eager (to play)." Heading into his age-33 season, Floyd's future was in doubt after he went down last September, but he'll be in the driver's seat to start opposite Keenan Allen if he has a healthy and productive camp.

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports Malcom Floyd (neck) is expected to be cleared to play in 2014.

Floyd met with Dr. Robert Watkins last week and had a conversation with the Chargers on Monday. "The doc said . I'm at risk just like anybody else," Floyd said. "There's not really a worry. . I'm feeling good. I think I feel like my old self." The 32-year-old was injured last September and openly wondered whether he'd ever play again. His return -- one we're still not 100 percent certain will happen -- would be a major boon to the Bolts' offense. Floyd can still run and fill the role as San Diego's deep threat opposite Keenan Allen.

Malcom Floyd (neck) is participating in voluntary workouts.

Barring a setback, Floyd was always expected to suit up. He's doing so at far less than 100 percent, however. His career remains in limbo, and could remain that way for some time.

The Union-Tribune San Diego confirms Malcom Floyd's (neck) career remains in limbo.

Floyd will participate in next week's voluntary workouts, but his level of participation is expected to be "more limited." Floyd is without a timetable to gain full clearance because it's unclear if he'll ever gain full clearance. Going on 33, Floyd's odds of suiting up in 2014 are no better than 50-50.

Malcom Floyd (neck) will attend voluntary workouts next week.

Floyd has been running and lifting weights for a couple months now and hopes to play this season, though that's still to be determined. Getting back on the field in shorts and shells is a good first step toward a return to the field. The Chargers could really use his vertical playmaking presence opposite Keenan Allen.

Malcom Floyd (neck) has resumed running and has been cleared to begin light weightlifting.

Floyd suffered an injury to a disc in his neck in Week 2 and spent the rest of the season on I.R. Although he's begun running and lifting, Floyd's career remains in serious doubt. Floyd didn't need surgery but still experiences some neck pain and discomfort. He wants to continue playing but acknowledges quality of life is important. Floyd has three young children. He's questionable for OTAs.
