Philip Rivers QB SD 5 Days

Rivers (chest) completed 29-of-35 passes for 291 yards, with a touchdown and interception, in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Rams.

Rivers had a tidy 8.3 YPA, but he had just one attempt over 20 yards, as a large chunk of his passing yardage came after the catch. He was actually having a rough fantasy game, until his screen pass to Keenan Allen midway through the fourth quarter resulted in a 29-yard touchdown. Allen had one of his best games of the season, catching 6-of-8 targets for 104 yards, showing great moves in the open field on several receptions. Whether Rivers' lack of deep shots is due to his nagging ribs/chest injuries, or just the team's conservative play calling, he'll need receivers like Allen to perform well after the catch. In Week 13, Rivers will have a decent shot to post strong numbers against a beatable Ravens' secondary.

Rivers (chest) practiced fully Wednesday, the Chargers' official site reports.

While Rivers' inclusion on the Chargers' Week 12 injury report confirms that he is dinged up in some fashion, his full participation presumably foreshadows a probable designation in advance of Sunday's game against the Rams.

Rivers (ribs) practiced Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Rivers (ribs/knee) said after Sunday's win over the Raiders that he is no more banged up than any other quarterback in the NFL, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Teammate Antonio Gates said Rivers has been dealing with a severe rib injury for the last three or four weeks, though the quarterback hasn't been listed on San Diego's injury report all season. Rivers also appeared to be a bit hobbled by a knee injury during Sunday's game, but he downplayed any concerns following the contest. While he'll likely join the injury report this upcoming week, Rivers clearly expects to play against the Rams. He has just one touchdown pass and 331 passing yards over the last two games.

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said after Sunday's win over the Raiders that Rivers has been dealing with a serious rib injury for the past few weeks, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. "For those who don't know, he's been dealing with a rib injury," Gates said. "A very severe rib injury."

Rivers also appeared to suffer a knee/leg injury, which was confirmed to be a knee problem following the game, ESPN's Eric Williams reports. Furthermore, Rivers had the wind knocked out of him in the fourth quarter, and that may have aggravated the rib issue. His health will be worth keeping an eye on for Week 12 against the Rams, as the slumping Chargers quarterback looks to get back on track.

Rivers completed 22-of-34 passes for 193 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Raiders.

Rivers hooked up with Malcolm Floyd on a 22-yard touchdown in the first minute of the game, but it was a struggle from that point on. Since throwing for 313 yards and three touchdowns in Week 6, Rivers has been in a little bit of a funk over the last four games, posting a 6:6 TD:INT ratio, with two performances under 200 passing yards. Next up for the veteran QB is St. Louis, which has been better at stopping the run than pass this season.

Though Rivers injured his right (throwing) hand in Sunday's 37-0 loss to the Dolphins, the issue wasn't the reason for his third quarter exit from the contest, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
