According to U-T San Diego, Chargers WR Malcom Floyd will play in 2014 following a career-threatening neck injury suffered early last year, per team and league sources.
"The doc said ... I'm at risk just like anybody else," Floyd said Monday. "There's not really a worry. As far as going out there and performing, I'm really excited to make plays again. Hopefully, I can do more this year than I ever have. ... I'm feeling good. I think I feel like my old self."
It's outstanding news for a Chargers offense that could use another deep threat. Keenan Allen is coming off a monster rookie year, but the Chargers lacked depth with only Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal on the chart. Floyd will be 33 years old this season, but he topped 800 yards in back-to-back seasons in 2011 and 2012 before getting injured early last season.
Floyd had three straight top 36 finishes from 2010 to 2012 before the injury. He's a capable real-world WR2 if healthy, but it's not clear where he'll fit on the depth chart with Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal.
