Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd and outside linebacker Dwight Freeney will both miss the rest of the season, the team announced Tuesday.

Floyd had to be immobilized after a scary neck injury during San Diego's second game. While bringing in a catch, Floyd was hit from behind by Philadelphia's Nate Allen. As he tried to control the ball, Floyd was then hit by DeMeco Ryans. The NFL fined Ryans $21,000 for striking a defenseless receiver.

Floyd was ruled out "indefinitely" with a sprained neck and now will sit out the rest of the year. He does not need surgery, though, FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reported.
