San Diego Wide Receiver Malcolm Floyd Taken to Hospital After Hard Hit

This play just looks like it hurts. Floyd was having a great game before this hit happened catching five of six passes thrown his way for 102 yards, but from the looks of this hit he will not be catching anything in the near future.

He was immobilized and taken to the hospital. The official word is he has a neck injury, but that he still had feeling in his limbs and was coherent.
Ed Werder of ESPN has received word from a source that the CT scan taken at the hospital came out fine and that Floyd made the team charter back to San Diego.

Assuming that what he is hearing is true that is great news.  The hit sure looked pretty bad on the field. I think anyone that has every played football before probably grabbed their neck in sympathy--I know I did!

If he is headed home already than he must be okay. I am sure that the team will hold him out of contact for awhile, but when you think about what could have been I think Floyd, the team, and the fans will not complain.
