Chargers WR Malcom Floyd taken off on stretcher against Eagles

Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd was taken off on a stretcher against the Eagles on Sunday after falling to the ground following a collision with a pair of Philadelphia defenders.

Floyd initially caught a pass from Philip Rivers but dropped it after being sandwiched on a hit by Nate Allen and DeMeco Ryans, where it appeared his neck and/or head got knocked pretty hard:

Floyd, the Chargers top remaining receiver after a slew of offseason injuries, stayed on the ground not moving. Trainers and other players would come on the field and eventually decide to have Floyd taken off on a stretcher.

He appeared, per Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, to be moving his legs and fingers  while being taken away from the game.
