San Diego Tribune: Malcom Floyd could have lost more than a couple
of games Dec. 14 when he suffered a collapsed lung in KC. "If I
had gotten on the plane to fly home, the doctors told me it could
have been a life-threatening situation," the wide receiver said
Thursday after running through a "limited" practice with the
Chargers. "It had to do with the pressure change that goes with
flying in combination with the collapsed lung," Floyd continued.
"If I hadn't said anything, I'd have flown with the team and I
would not be here." Floyd said he hopes to be able to play Sunday.
"I feel great. Let's see what the doctors say," Floyd said. But
the Chargers seem more inclined to have him miss this week and be
100% for the possibility of a playoff game. "Malcom is a very
physical player," Chargers HC Turner said. "Unless he is 100%, I'm
not in position to use him. There's a good chance he'll be
watching this week." The chronology of Floyd's injury in KC could
be used as evidence of his toughness. Floyd believes he suffered
the collapsed lung during the game's first series.
