Malcom Floyd has started running

Hey Floyd owners, how’s this for a quote:

“I felt like my old self again,” Floyd told Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune on Tuesday. “This is something I couldn’t wait for … It’s a sense of confidence knowing I’m going to be able to play.”

The veteran wide receiver began running and cutting during Tuesday’s practice session for the first time since injuring his hamstring four weeks ago.

San Diego is on the bye this weekend and then returns to play the Denver Broncos at Qualcomm Stadium in Week 11.

Prior to getting hurt, Floyd was one of the best WR options in the business. The 29-year old caught 24 passes for 513 yards and three touchdowns in just six games before going down at St. Louis.

In other Chargers news, wide receiver Legedu Naanee ran with Floyd during Tuesday’s practice session and tight end Antonio Gates will get the week off to rest his injured foot.
