Chargers' Malcom Floyd Out For Preseason, Getting Second Opinion
Created on Aug. 13, 2013 6:20 PM EST
There were concerns that San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd tore his ACL after going down in practice yesterday, but an MRI confirmed that he only has a sprain. He was in visible pain for several minutes before being carted off the field, and the Chargers feared the worst for his health.
The Chargers can hardly afford to lose Floyd after WR Danario Alexander tore his ACL, and they’re likely to be very cautious when dealing with his recovery and medical examinations.
The famed Dr. James Andrews is being consulted on the injury, so it’s clear that they’re taking every precaution. Floyd and the Chargers can only hope that Andrews doesn’t find something that the team doctors were unable to see.
