Malcolm Floyd Injury Update

As news continues to come in on whether San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcolm Floyd will be back to football soon or out indefinitely the NFL has taken a step to protect other receivers.  Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans, who put the hit on Floyd has been fined $21,000 for the hit.

After the hit by Ryans, Floyd was motionless for about 10 minutes before being taken off the field on a stretcher. He was briefly hospitalized, but flew home on the Chargers’ team plan after the game.

The fine, first reported by Pro Football Talk, was for striking a defenseless receiver in the head. The hit happened as Floyd was trying to catch a pass while Eagles safety Nate Allen held him from behind. Ryans approached from the front and hit Floyd. It appeared that Floyd ducked his head just as Ryans arrived, and the impact drove Floyd’s head down into his neck.

Floyd has said that after the hit all of his limbs went numb.  A media “source” has claimed that Floyd will not be returning to football, but Floyd, who is still wearing a neck brace, has not made this announcement himself.

While I hope to see him healthy and back in Bolt Blue I would understand if he decided to call it quits.

We will keep you posted. #OneCharge #IBelieve
