The San Diego Chargers may have received a much-needed break Monday night when test results on Malcom Floyd's injured knee showed better results than the team originally feared.

U-T San Diego reports initial tests show Floyd has a knee strain, instead of a torn ACL as the team originally feared. He is set to have more exams. If Floyd, who is the Chargers' top receiver, only has a strain, he could be back for the start of the season.

Last week, the Chargers saw fellow starter Danario Alexander tear his ACL and be lost for the year.

Meanwhile, San Diego running back Danny Woodhead, who had a strong start to camp, returned to practice Monday for the first time since Aug. 2. He was out with an undisclosed injury.
