SAN DIEGO - Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd strained his right knee in a collision with cornerback Shareece Wright during practice on Monday.

The team confirmed the injury on Monday night, but didn't release any other details. It's believed the injury isn't as serious as the one that sidelined the team's other starter, Danario Alexander, for the season.

Alexander tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee after he collided with Wright last Tuesday.

Floyd, taken off the field in a cart, had an MRI exam Monday evening.

Rookie linebacker Manti Te'o said his sprained right foot is better, but he won't play Thursday at Chicago.
