Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd didn't play for the rest of the year after suffering a scary neck injury in Week 2, and there's a chance he will never play football again.
Floyd told Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego that he "definitely" wants to keep playing, has been told that players have returned from this type of injury before, and is making progress in his rehab. However, Floyd has also been told by Dr. Robert Atkins that his spinal-disc issue could potentially be career-ending.
Floyd is sneaky old as he will turn 33 years old in September. He has two years and $5.75 million worth of salary remaining on his current four-season contract. His deep-threat skills are something the Chargers could definitely use; their top receivers -- Keenan Allen and Antonio Gates -- are more mid-range targets. But whether he will be a meaningful part of the team's 2014 plans is to be determined.
