Chargers declared WR Malcom Floyd, T Tyreek Burwell, OLB Kavell Conner, CB Greg Ducre, LB Cordarro Law, CB Adrian Phillips and DE Damion Square inactive for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Floyd tore his labrum in San Diego's last game against Chicago and was never close to playing this week. King Dunlap (ankle), Kyle Emanuel (concussion), D.J. Fluker (concussion), Orlando Franklin (knee), Antonio Gates (knee, hip), Ladarius Green (ankle), Corey Liuget (foot), Denzel Perryman (biceps), Manti Te'o (ankle) and Jason Verrett (groin) are active.

Malcom Floyd (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Dontrelle Inman will take over as San Diego's No. 2 wideout behind Stevie Johnson, with Jevontee Herndon operating as the No. 3. There is some hope Ladarius Green (ankle) will play this week, which would give the Chargers an ability to use more two-tight end, two-wideout "12" personnel packages with Inman, Stevie, Green, and Antonio Gates in the base offense.

Malcolm Floyd (shoulder) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He's not going to play this week. With such little depth at wide receiver due to injuries, the Chargers are likely to promote rookie Tyrell Williams from the practice squad on Saturday. Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman will start at wide receiver Sunday against Kansas City.

Malcom Floyd (shoulder) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

He hasn't practiced since tearing his labrum against Chicago in Week 9. That's usually a season-ending injury but Floyd, who is in his final season, said he'll try to play through it. Assuming Floyd sits, Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon will be San Diego's top three wideouts Sunday against Kansas City.

Malcom Floyd (torn labrum) said he will return this season.

"I plan on coming back," Floyd said. "Based on the experience of all the injuries I've had, you've got to know your body and know how to rehab it and get back on track." Coach Mike McCoy also said he is "optimistic" Floyd can return. Floyd missed practice Wednesday and is unlikely to suit up this week, and it would not be surprising if he misses the rest of the season.

Coach Mike McCoy is "optimistic" Malcom Floyd (shoulder) will return this season.

Floyd wasn't cleared to practice coming off the Chargers' bye. He's trying to play through a torn labrum, but looks unlikely for Sunday. Floyd plans to retire at the end of the season even if he doesn’t return.

Malcom Floyd (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday.

Floyd has said he wants to play through the torn labrum in his shoulder, but it's going to be really tough to manage the pain. The Chargers are severely banged up at receiver, leaving Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman atop the depth chart. Javontee Herndon is the lone other healthy receiver on the roster.
Nov 18 - 3:11 PM

Antonio Gates is trying to convince Malcom Floyd (torn labrum) to play one more season.

"I think he was always etched in stone he was going to retire," Gates said. "But now, I think there's a little doubt in his mind because of how he went out. I put more doubt in his mind because I want him to come back. I'm like 'Dude, you can't go out like this.'" This quote suggests two things. First, it appears likely Floyd has played his last snap this season. Second, it is clear Gates plans on continuing his career next year. Both are important pieces of fantasy news, but Floyd likely missing the rest of the season has more of an immediate impact. Dontrelle Inman finished last year strong and could make an impact in the fantasy playoffs if Floyd is indeed done.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Malcom Floyd (shoulder) will rehab and attempt to play through his torn labrum the remainder of the season.

Floyd is in the final year of his career and doesn't want to go out like this. He wants to leave on his own terms and is willing to put it all out on the field. A torn labrum is a serious injury and one that likely won't allow Floyd to lift his arm above his head without excruciating pain. If he plays through it, anytime he hits the turf could knock him out of the game. Floyd will use the Chargers' Week 10 bye to figure out what he's going to do, but it's hard to expect the same production.

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken reports Malcom Floyd (shoulder) suffered a torn labrum in Monday night's Week 9 loss to the Bears.

It was reported earlier Tuesday that the Chargers considered Floyd "day-to-day." But after an MRI, it appears Floyd is much worse off than that. Per Gehlken, Floyd's status for the remainder of 2015 is "to be determined." There's a high likelihood he's played his final snap of not only this season, but his career, as Floyd, 34, has said this will be his final year. If Floyd is to miss the remainder of the season, Dontrelle Inman will step in as the No. 2 opposite Stevie Johnson. Look for Johnson, Antonio Gates, and Danny Woodhead to be target hogs.

The Chargers consider Malcom Floyd (shoulder) day to day.

With the Bolts on bye this week, it sounds like Floyd might not miss any time. It's a rare bit of good injury news for the league's most banged up team. Floyd's status will be updated early next week.
Nov 10 - 4:32 PM

Malcom Floyd exited Monday night's Week 9 game against the Bears with a shoulder injury.

Philip Rivers tried to hit Floyd deep down the left sideline early in the second quarter. The 34-year-old receiver dove for the ball and landed hard on his upper body, possibly dislocating his left shoulder. He laid on the field before walking off the field with trainers, holding his arm to his body, and heading directly to the locker room. Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman, and Javontee Herndon are the healthy receivers left. Floyd didn't catch a pass before leaving.
Nov 9 - 9:16 PM

Malcom Floyd secured 4-of-6 targets for 92 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 8 loss to the Ravens.

Congratulations if you drafted Floyd in a best-ball league. He entered this game with 17 receptions through seven weeks, yet proceeded to go off, dusting the entire Ravens secondary for a 70-yard touchdown bomb and also securing a red-zone score from Philip Rivers. Fantasy owners need to keep an eye on Keenan Allen's (shoulder) status this week. Floyd could continue to see an expanded role if Allen can't go in Week 9 against the Bears.
Nov 1 - 5:51 PM

Malcom Floyd secured 1-of-3 targets for seven yards in the Chargers' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

As the Chargers have morphed into a shotgun-based, quick-passing team, vertical stretcher Floyd has done very little in the box score. Floyd will be a WR5 in Week 8, even against Baltimore's barely-there pass defense.
