Malcom Floyd WR SD 4 Months2 Comments

Floyd (shoulder) returned to Thursday's game against the Broncos, finishing with four catches for 58 yards on seven targets.

Floyd was deemed probable to return after suffering the injury in the third quarter, and he quickly made his way back into the game. He caught two passes for 42 yards before the injury, with another two receptions for 16 yards in the fourth quarter. Floyd was targeted on a few deep plays, including one that ended with a game-clinching interception by Broncos safety Rahim Moore. Though he's mostly just a deep threat, Floyd does have seven targets in each of the last three games, after averaging 3.4 through the first five weeks of the season.

Floyd left Thursday's game against the Broncos with a shoulder injury but is probable to return, Ricky Henne of Chargers.com reports.

Floyd hurt himself while making a fantastic 26-yard catch in the third quarter, and he left for the locker room shortly thereafter. He's apparently expected to return, but if for some reason he doesn't, Seyi Ajirotutu and/or Dontrelle Inman will see added snaps. Floyd

Floyd had three catches on seven targets for 50 yards in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

Floyd is only averaging three receptions per game this season, but he's making the most of them, with a stellar 20.7 YPC. He's also scored three touchdowns this year, making him a better option in standard scoring leagues.

Floyd (calf) had one of his best games of the season, catching five passes on seven targets for 103 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over Oakland.

Floyd left last week's game with a calf injury, but the aliment was never considered too serious, and he showed that he was healthy Sunday, making a couple of great leaping catches on long passes. The veteran Floyd is not likely to see a ton of targets, with a bunch of mouths to feed in San Diego's strong passing attack, but he's easily the team's best deep threat.

Floyd (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Floyd will give it a go Sunday, but it's unclear how close to 100 percent he'll be after practicing in a limited fashion all week and entering the contest listed as questionable. To date, Floyd is third among Chargers' wideouts, with 12 catches on 18 yards for 259 yards through five games, but he has managed to record two TDs in that span.

Floyd practiced in a limited fashion all week, so we suspect that he should be able to give it a go Sunday, though those considering him this weekend are nonetheless advised to verify the wideout's status in advance of Sunday's 4:05 kickoff.

Fellow wideout Keenan Allen has also been limited this week, though Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune has indicated that both players are expected to play Sunday against the Raiders. In any case, we'll revisit Floyd's status Friday, once the Chargers' final Week 6 injury report is released.

Floyd (calf) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

Floyd, who caught three passes for 72 yards this past Sunday against the Jets, suffered a calf injury in Week 5's contest, but his presence on the field Wednesday bodes well for his availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Floyd suffered a calf injury during Sunday's game versus the Jets and is considered questionable to return.

Floyd caught three passes for a team-high 72 yards prior to exiting Sunday's contest. However, with the score currently 28-0 late in the third quarter, Floyd returning to the action isn't particularly pressing. Nonetheless, his calf ailment is something to monitor moving forward.

Floyd -- who caught three passes for 39 yards and a TD in Week 4's win over the Jaguars -- missed Wednesday's practice, but is good to go this weekend after returning to a full session Thursday and then being removed from the Chargers' injury report altogether on Friday.
