There was a scary moment in the Eagles-Chargers game today, as Malcom Floyd was hit by DeMeco Ryans on an incomplete pass over the middle. Ryans' shoulder hit Floyd's head, which bent awkwardly into his body. 

Floyd was down for about 10 minutes, with both Eagles and Chargers players taking a knee around him in prayer. Floyd was taken off on a stretcher.

Up until that play, Floyd was having a big day, and he hauled in 5 passes for 102 yards in the first half alone. He is done for the day.
