Malcom Floyd active for Chargers
By Bill Williamson
SAN DIEGO -- In a surprise move, San Diego has activated receiver Malcom Floyd for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
He was listed as doubtful on the injury report. He did not practice all week after hurting his groin at New England last week. The Chargers have activated all six of their receivers, likely in case if Floyd suffers a setback. Rookie receiver Vincent Brown is expected to make his NFL debut.
As expected, San Diego will be without tight end Antonio Gates because of a foot injury. Also, as expected, San Diego safety Bob Sanders is inactive with a knee injury. San Diego rookie defensive end Corey Liuget is inactive with an ankle injury.
Kansas City first-round pick, receiver Jon Baldwin, is inactive for the third straight game with a thumb injury he reportedly suffered in a fight with teammate Thomas Jones five weeks ago. Baldwin did begin to practice on a limited basis last week.
