Floyd Out for Remainder of Game

Sunday, Jan. 3

Floyd left Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos with a concussion, per Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The 12-year veteran announced back in June that he was going to retire after this season. The 34-year-old receiver, who has played his entire career with the Chargers, said his reasoning for leaving the game was to spend more time with his family.    

"I have four kids now," Floyd told Gehlken. "I'm barely getting any time with them. I've got to go home and rest."

Floyd finishes his career with 321 catches, 5,550 yards and 34 touchdowns. After suffering a career-threatening neck injury in 2013, Floyd played a full season for the first time in his career in 2014. He tied a career-high 856 yards on 52 catches.

The 6'5", 225-pound Floyd was not only one of quarterback Philip Rivers' favorite targets the last five years, but he was a reliable big-play guy who had good speed and size to get any ball thrown his way.

He may not be remembered for his numbers, but Floyd will be missed on Sundays.
