Floyd receives three-year extension - Scott Bair

Battle, McClain Face Former Team - Ricky Henne
Sunday’s game vs. the Kansas City Chiefs is an important one for the San Diego Chargers. It’s a division game on the road coming off the team’s first loss of the season. But for two of the Bolts, this match means even more since Jackie Battle and Le’Ron McClain will be facing off against the team they played for as recently as last season.

Floyd to remain key piece of S.D. offense - Bill Williamson
Floyd has become the team’s No. 1 receiver since Vincent Jackson left as a free agent, with 13 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown in the first three games. He is known for making spectacular catches look routine and he is a fine deep threat. Floyd’s health has been a concern, but he has been healthy and productive this season.

Houston is more than just in a rush - Bill Williamson
Still, what makes Houston truly valuable to his team is that he is becoming a complete player. Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel told reporters Wednesday that Houston figured out about halfway through his rookie season that he has to do more than just harass the quarterback.
