Chargers WR Floyd cleared

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd will join the team for workouts after receiving medical clearance for the first time since a season-ending injury at Philadelphia in 2013.

"There wasn't a day where I considered I wouldn't be able to come back," Floyd told the Chargers' official website. "There were definitely a number of tough times though ... There are a number of players in this league, and in this locker room, who persevered through tough injuries as well. They are guys who came back and played their hearts out, so they are all inspirations to me."

Floyd, diagnosed with a spinal disc injury last September, was cleared for light workouts in March.

He is owed $2.75 million in 2014 and could bring a needed secondary receiver to Keenan Allen, who emerged as a rookie as a legitimate lead receiver for quarterback Philip Rivers in the Chargers' pro-style offense.

The 32-year-old said he has never been more excited to start a season.

"I missed just being able to do what a normal human being does. But now that I'm feeling normal, I feel myself getting into beast mode. I'm ready for the season to start," he said.
