Chargers fans were relieved when they heard that Malcom Floyd’s injury was just a knee strain rather than a torn ACL but it still doesn’t mean that Floyd is 100% to return to the field soon. According to ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd did not tore ACL and he will miss the rest of the preseason.

Good news for the Chargers. Chargers WR Danario Alexander saw his season ended by an ACL injury earlier in training camp and at least Floyd will see his preseason end early. Last season Floyd racked up in 14 games 56 receptions with 814 yards and 5 TDs. Also Floyd was the top receiver in targets, receptions, yards, and 20+ receptions. So if Floyd’s injury was a torn ACL it would have been a huge blow to the Chargers offense.

Chargers are going to need WR Eddie Royal, WR Vincent Brown and WR Keenan Allen to step up and fill the void that Alexander and Floyd will leave throughout the preseason. Therefore don’t be surprise if the passing game for the Chargers struggles in the beginning.

For Chargers QB Philip Rivers, he is going to need his WR healthy if he wants to have a successful season. Especially because the Chargers are “destined” to go win the Superbowl due to the fact they are facing the Eagles in the Eagles home opener.

    They are destined? I don’t think so. There are way better AFC teams than the Chargers, 2 come from their own division. The Chargers passing game is extremely weak and relying on players that aren’t the best WR’s, and it’s not like they have a bell-cow back. This looks to be one of the Chargers worse seasons to date.

      I’m not saying that they are going to win but I’m saying they are destined in the form that the last 4 super bowl champions have played against the Eagles in the Eagles home opener. I don’t even think that the Chargers are going to win a wildcard spot but I decided to put that to make fun of the fact that the last 4 Super Bowl champions (Saints, Packers, Giants, Ravens) actually played against the Eagles in the Eagles home opener.
