FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports Malcom Floyd's (neck) "rough estimate" on a timetable for return is a month.

Floyd is "taking it slow, for obvious reasons," per Garafolo. Floyd has a severe neck injury, and at age 32 isn't going to push it. His absence removes any semblance of a downfield threat from the Chargers' passing attack. Floyd can safely be dropped in fantasy leagues. Rookie Keenan Allen is his replacement, working in three-wide packages with Eddie Royal and Vincent Brown.

Chargers coaches claimed Floyd was "fine" following Sunday's win, but it turns out that's not the case. Floyd needs a second opinion and is considered "out indefinitely", per Rapoport. Floyd looks droppable in fantasy leagues despite his 102-yard Week 2 game. Keenan Allen, Vincent Brown, and Eddie Royal will encompass San Diego's three-receiver package in the meantime.

His neck was immobilized and he was stretchered into the locker room. Floyd's day is done with five catches for 102 yards.

Philip Rivers shot-put the ball deep down the left sideline, and Floyd skied over Johnathan Joseph to haul it in. Floyd was bother by a knee injury during the summer, but he looked fine in the opener. He's no more than a WR4/5.
