Malcom Floyd, making waves with his excellent route running and ability to make the tough catch, went down at 4:55 PM at the Chargers training camp in Carson.
Floyd was in the process of running a deep sideline route and facing double coverage Floyd jumped up in the air to reach for a high pass delivered by Cleo lemon, towering over the two defenders in the area, and tried to make the catch. Instead he could not make the tough play and came down hard on his right shoulder.
Floyd laid on the field for about ten seconds, tried to get up and went back down in obvious pain. The coaches and the training staff huddled around him as he was placed on a cart to be worked on. After his shoulder was taped, he was brought into the locker room for further evaluation.
Marty Schottenheimer showed obvious concern by standing near Floyd and offering words of comfort. Floyd had made enough progress early in camp to become the odds on favorite from the undrafted wide receiving core to make the team.
Floyd just returned to camp following a short trip to Sacremento to be with his ailing mother. At a time when he could have lost focus, Floyd was giving it his all on the field.
The prognosis turned positive when it was found out to be a minor injury after that day of camp, according to the Chargers brass. And Schottenheimer praised his work after the second practice of the day.
A day later, it was revealed that Floyd fractured a clavicle and will miss at least a month of action. Floyd may be "hidden on IR" as he has played well throughout minicamp and the early part of training camp.
