News you need to know

2015 Week 9 vs CHI (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Floyd didn't make it very far in this game before leaving with an injury. He was targeted on a deep ball down the sideline and lunged for it but came up empty. On the play, his arm sort of jammed into the ground and he appeared to be in immediate pain. It was later reported that he had suffered a shoulder injury and was questionable to return. But he came out for the second half in street clothes, so he obviously did not come back in.
2015 Week 8 vs BAL (6 / 4 / 92 / 2 rec)
Floyd had three short receptions, one of which went for a touchdown (he was even interfered with on the play) where he made a very tough catch with the defender hanging all over him. The other short two catches were near the sidelines in front of the defender, and obviously went for minimal yardage. And then he broke free deep down the field for a wide open 70-yard touchdown pass late in the third quarter. The Chargers did a perfect job of picking up the blitz, and Philip Rivers found Floyd in stride at about the 30-yard line. Floyd did the rest in out-running the Baltimore defense the rest of the way for the easy score. Number one option Keenan Allen was injured just before halftime, so Floyd would probably see an increased role if Allen were to miss any time. Be sure to check back for updates on Allen's status this week.
2015 Week 7 vs OAK (3 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
With the return of Stevie Johnson, Floyd was relegated to WR3 duties in this one. Coupled with the heavy distribution of passes to the running backs and tight ends, and the fact that the game plan was to attack Oakland underneath with short passes, it wasn't a good combo for the deep threat Floyd. He was targeted deep down the seam, but the ball was well overthrown. Fortunately, he drew an illegal contact from the defense on the play. He was later targeted down the sideline for another deep ball. He got his hands on it, but his body was contorted and he probably didn't really even see the ball; it would have been an absolutely amazing catch had he been able to haul it in. Aside from that, he had just one short catch that went for minimal yardage.
2015 Week 6 vs GB (12 / 5 / 95 / 0 rec)
Floyd started the 2015 season as the team's number three receiver, but by the end of this game he was the team's de facto number one. With Stevie Johnson out with an injury and Keenan Allen leaving early with an injury, Floyd was leaned on heavily in the suddenly pass happy San Diego offense. As usual, Floyd was targeted on several deep balls. He hauled in one of them down the seam for 50 yards to convert a third and 17 pass play. The other two longball attempts weren't all that close to being completed, though. The first was overthrown well past him, and there was good coverage on the play. The last one also featured good coverage, but Floyd came close to making a fantastic catch of the ball. It was a true jump ball in the end zone, and while Floyd did get his hands on it, the defender had a little bit better positioning to knock it away for an incompletion.
2015 Week 5 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 48 / 0 rec)
Floyd had a big play to set up the Chargers second touchdown, but was otherwise quiet against the Steelers.
2015 Week 4 vs CLE (2 / 1 / 20 / 0 rec)
Floyd left the game with a concussion after taking a hard shot over the middle early in the first half, and did not return. During the brief time he was in the game, he went up high to snag a 20-yard grab over the middle and also drew a holding penalty on a deep ball target down the seam. With Floyd and also Stevie Johnson out with injury, Dontrelle Inman took advantage by grabbing three passes for 88 yards.
2015 Week 3 vs MIN (7 / 4 / 63 / 0 rec)
Floyd had the second-most targets of any player in the game, but most of them weren't high-quality targets. One that was, is a 39-yard completion from Philip Rivers late in the first half. Floyd blew by the defense, Rivers finally got some time to throw, and the two hooked up on a long pass play that helped set up a Keenan Allen touchdown later on the drive. Aside from that, however, Floyd didn't get a whole lot of deep opportunities because Philip Rivers rarely had any time to wait for plays to develop.
2015 Week 2 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 55 / 1 rec)
Floyd may have caught just two balls in the game, but he had the longest pass play of the afternoon for San Diego, and it kept them in it right up until their final drive of the game. Floyd's first catch was a simple crossing route where the ball was perfectly-placed. Floyd's outstanding speed got him a step ahead of the defense, and 15 yards later he was taken down. But late in the game, he ran right by the cornerback, who seemingly expected safety help over the top. That help never came, and Floyd walked into the end zone untouched for a 40-yard touchdown. The ball was actually a bit underthrown, and he had to wait for it to come down. But he was so far beyond the defense that it didn't really matter. There had been an earlier deep ball attempt to Floyd that was also underthrown, and he had to play defense on that one to keep it from being intercepted. And he had an early 5-yard slant that was wiped out because the play had been whistled dead prior to the snap due to a false start on the Chargers.
2015 Week 1 vs DET (2 / 1 / 29 / 0 rec)
Floyd has long been the primary deep threat for the team, and this game was no exception. But the workload is worrisome for Floyd owners. He caught just one pass, a long ball down the sideline for 29 yards. But that was it. The only other time he was looked to, was in the back corner of the end zone on a fade pass. There appeared to be some miscommunication between Floyd and Rivers, as Floyd went to the corner but Rivers looked to be attempting a back shoulder fade pass. The arrival of Stevie Johnson to the team isn't going to simply cut into Floyd's production; it all but eliminates it. Johnson saw six targets to Floyd's two, and Floyd was the fifth option in the passing game at BEST.

link to story Chargers | Malcom Floyd, Ladarius Green limited (Thu Nov 26, 04:12 PM) - San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) and TE Ladarius Green (ankle) were limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 26. Our View: We don't expect to see Floyd, but Green will be on the field. With Antonio Gates there, he won't see a ton of action but you also have to consider how many receivers are hurt and think he'll see some work anyway. As a low-end TE2, Green has some value.
