San Digo Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd is expected to play this season after recovering from a neck injury that nearly ended his career, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Dr. Robert Watkins had an appointment with Floyd last week.

"The doc said … I'm at risk just like anybody else," Floyd said. There's not really a worry. … I'm feeling good. I think I feel like my old self."

Floyd, 32, got hurt on a hit from Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans, who was fined $21,000 for striking a defenseless player in the head and neck area.

"I'm really excited to make plays again," Floyd said. "Hopefully, I can do more this year than I ever have."
