Floyd suffered a neck injury, according to the team, and was immobilized and taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Floyd had feeling in his limbs and was coherent, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source who had been in contact with the receiver.

Players from both teams kneeled around the Chargers receiver as medical personnel attended to him. Floyd did appear to be moving his extremities before he was carted off the field.

"He's doing fine," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said after the game, via The Associated Press. "All the tests right now look good. It's great for the organization to go out and get a win for Malcom. I'll leave it at that and update you as time goes on."

Floyd was Philip Rivers' go-to receiver in the first half. The 6-foot-5 pass-catcher had five receptions for 102 yards in Sunday's game before being hurt.

Last month, Floyd injured his knee in a collision during practice. At the time, Floyd said he "dodged a bullet" because it wasn't a season-ending injury.

Rookie receiver Keenan Allen replaced Floyd in the lineup Sunday.
