Floyd Takes Over 'Z' Position For Chargers

Nov 17, 2012 4:50 PM EST

Danario Alexander was on the field for snaps last week instead of a healthy Robert Meachem, but Malcom Floyd technically took over Meachem's position.

Floyd played the "Z" receiver, which was previously played by Meachem and Vincent Jackson in the past.

The “Z” typically lines up on the same side as tight end Antonio Gates.
