The San Diego Chargers have opted to place Malcom Floyd on injured reserve with a neck injury, which will end his season, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com

Floyd went down in the Chargers’ Week 2 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles after S Nate Allen and LB DeMeco Ryans crushed him on a play. He was down on the field for several minutes before he was immobilized and taken to the locker room on a stretcher.

There was some initial optimism that Floyd would be able to make a return to the field after a week, but after getting a second opinion, he was placed in a cervical collar. The next estimate put his timetable for a return at a month, but apparently there were more serious issues that were recently discovered.

Floyd signed a four-year, $13 million deal with the Chargers last year. However, his contract is no longer guaranteed after this year, and it’s hard to see San Diego bringing the 32-year-old back.
