San Diego Union Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd continues to make small steps in his recovery from a neck injury suffered last September. The 32-year-old resumed running about a month ago, he said Saturday, and spinal specialist Dr. Robert Watkins cleared him last week to participate in light weightlifting.

It is unclear whether Floyd's NFL career can continue, the possibility it cannot appearing very real. It remains to be seen to what extent he recovers from his spinal disc issue, and even then, the risk of re-injury must be assessed before the decision to play is made.

San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Malcom Floyd, after four months, still wears a neck brace to bed every night. He still deals with pain from an open-field hit that ended his season. He still waits to know if he can return to the game.

After four months, he hasn't lost hope.

The Chargers wide receiver wants to play football again. He's been told the spinal disk issue that he's dealt with since September is one from which players have come back. But he's also been told by Dr. Robert Watkins that it potentially can be career ending. Floyd has an appointment in about a month, he said, that is expected to give a better sense for him which it will be.

Union-Tribune San Diego - [Full Article]

WR Keenan Allen, the youngest player on the Chargers roster, was 20 when drafted in April, is among the team's biggest surprises this year.

Allen has caught 23 passes for 369 yards and two touchdowns the past four games, a run that becomes more impressive when considering his growing pains months ago. Moving forward, confidence management is key.

Fantasy Impact:

Allen has really stepped up since the loss of Malcom Floyd and has emerged as Philip Rivers go-to WR - seemingly over Eddie Royal, who got off to a great start, and Vincent Brown, who has yet to really get things going this season. We're respecting Allen too, and rank him as a WR1 play this week.

Former Titans receiver Lavelle Hawkins is signing with the Chargers today.

Fantasy Impact:

This is likely an indication that Malcom Floyd won't be back in the near future. Keenan Allen, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal will continue to see the most work.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd, who was carted off in Week 2 against the Eagles, is getting a second opinion. But out indefinitely, source says. In a neck brace for at least a week.

Fantasy Impact:

Floyd joined his teammates on their flight home Sunday night and the team said he would be "fine." However, he's now going to miss some time. Keenan Allen, Vincent Brown and Eddie Royal will take over the workload until Floyd comes back.

Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (knee) was a full participant in practice all week. Listed as probable.

Fantasy Impact:

He would start opposite Vincent Brown in what's not a great matchup against the Texans. The Chargers are a team you want to get a feel for before putting anyone in your lineup.
