San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - San Diego Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd hopes to be ready in time for the season opener after suffering a knee sprain during Monday's practice.

The injury occurred after colliding with cornerback Shareece Wright.

"I kind of dodged a bullet with this one," Floyd said. "We were just doing one-on-ones and I just got twisted up on a play and came down on my knee. It feels better than what it looked like on the field. We're just taking it day by day. It feels better than yesterday."

Floyd will send the results of his MRI to other specialists so the initial diagnosis can be confirmed.

"I thought I did something really bad to it," Floyd said. "But it's just a strain. No tears. I'm day to day."

Floyd led the Chargers with a career-best 56 receptions for 814 yards and five touchdowns last season. Over his eight-year career, all with the Chargers, Floyd has 233 catches for 3,984 yards and 25 TDs.

Danario Alexander, San Diego's other starting receiver, was lost for the year after tearing his ACL last Tuesday.
