Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he would not be surprised if Philip Rivers plays into his 40s.
Rivers just turned 36 in December and is coming off another quality season in which he showed few signs of slowing down. His performance plus the addition of Cardale Jones last year reduces the Chargers' need for a developmental option behind Rivers, but it still would not be surprising to see them add to the quarterback room in the draft. Rivers is under contract through 2019. Mar 1 - 12:09 PM

Philip Rivers completed 28-of-37 passes for 387 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 17 win over the Raiders.

With the Raiders' secondary seemingly speaking different languages, Rivers was able to take advantage for two long touchdowns against broken coverage, and he hit Keenan Allen with a dime for his third score. Unfortunately, the Chargers did not get the help they needed in the other afternoon games and will miss the playoffs for the fourth season in a row. The failure wastes a good season from Rivers, who threw for 4,515 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions, his lowest total in that category since 2009. Rivers showed he still has gas left in the tank at 36, but the Chargers need to take advantage of this window before it closes. They have the talent to make it happen with another solid offseason.

Philip Rivers completed 22-of-40 passes for 290 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Jets.

Rivers didn't need to do much with the Jets' offense stalling out. His only touchdown was a goal-line pass to Antonio Gates. It's a needed rebound for Rivers after his meltdown against the Chiefs last week. The Chargers have an outside chance at the playoffs with the win. They play Oakland in Week 17.

Philip Rivers completed 20-of-36 passes for 227 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the Chargers' Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

A gambler attempting high-risk throws into double coverage all night, Rivers was made to pay on a third-quarter deep attempt intended for Tyrell Williams when Williams lost track of the ball in the air and Marcus Peters easily picked off Rivers’ pass, returning it deep into Chargers territory. It was Rivers’ first interception in 164 pass attempts, previously the NFL’s longest active streak. Rivers threw his second pick in the fourth quarter on a forced fourth-down throw; FS Ron Parker was on the receiving end. Rivers’ third interception occurred in garbage time on yet another pick by Peters. On the season, six of Rivers’ ten INTs have come against Kansas City. Rivers will be a low-end QB1 play when the Bolts visit the Jets in Week 16.

Philip Rivers completed 18-of-31 passes for 319 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Redskins.

This is now Rivers' third consecutive game with 300 or more passing yards and a touchdown. Despite completing only 58 percent of his passes, he was able to take advantage of multiple deep opportunities. His first touchdown came on a crossing route to TE Hunter Henry in which he created ample separation for Rivers to exploit. His second touchdown was a 75-yard bomb to WR Tyrell Williams who burned CB Josh Norman. He could have had an even bigger day but was pulled early in the fourth quarter. Rivers will be a QB1 in Week 15 against the Chiefs.

Philip Rivers completed 31-of-43 passes for 347 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Browns.

Rivers could do no wrong on Sunday until the Chargers got into the red zone. The only blemish of Rivers' day was that the Chargers settled for five field goal attempts in the red zone or his day could've been much larger for fantasy purposes. He did convert one red zone drive into a touchdown at least, connecting with Keenan Allen on a 7-yard score on the opening drive of the second half. Rivers has now completed 53-of-76 passes (76.3 percent) for 781 yards and four touchdowns over his past two weeks. He has held a high floor for fantasy all season long and will be a strong QB1 option next week when the Chargers host Washington.

Philip Rivers completed 27-of-33 passes for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 12 Thanksgiving win over the Cowboys.

Dak Prescott will undeservedly bear the brunt of blame for Dallas' slump, but Rod Marinelli's defense has been just as much of a liability. They could not cover Keenan Allen all night and hemorrhaged big plays to Hunter Henry and Tyrell Williams. Rivers simply didn't miss, picking apart Dallas even as his field goal kicker got hurt and cost the team points. Rivers draws another favorable matchup in Week 13 against the Browns.

Philip Rivers completed 20-of-32 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 11 win over the Bills.

Rivers did all of his damage in the first half, staking the Bolts to a 37-7 lead at halftime after Bills rookie QB Nathan Peterman threw five first-half picks. It set Rivers and company up in prime field position, and Rivers threw both of his touchdowns to Keenan Allen, who finished the day with a fine 12-159-2 line. None of the offensive stars played in the fourth quarter. Rivers will be a back-end QB1 on Thanksgiving Day against the Cowboys at JerryWorld.

Philip Rivers (concussion) is active for Week 11 against the Bills.

He was the only real notable injury question for the Bolts. Inactive for the Chargers are WR Geramy Davis, RB Branden Oliver, DE Chris McCain, LB Hayes Pullard, RT Joe Barksdale, TE Sean Caulkin, and LB James Onwualu.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 02:47:00 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) has been cleared to start Week 11 against Buffalo.

This was expected after Rivers practiced fully all week. He's passed the concussion protocol and will extend his streak to 186 consecutive games played. Rivers is Rotoworld's No.11-ranked quarterback for Week 11.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 07:41:00 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) is questionable for Week 11 against the Bills.

Despite the questionable listing, Rivers practiced all week and is fully expected to play, which would his extend his streak of consecutive games played to 186. Going against a Bills defense that yielded 47 points in a Week 10 loss to New Orleans, Rivers is in the QB1 conversation.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 03:38:00 PM

Philip Rivers (concussion) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

It means Rivers has all but cleared the concussion protocol, and will be out there against the Bills. The start will be Rivers' 186th in a row. He's in the QB1 mix for Week 11.
Thu, Nov 16, 2017 06:39:00 PM

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn expects Philip Rivers (concussion) to play Week 11 against the Bills.

"We think he'll play, but that's up to the doctors," said Lynn. "That's not my decision." Rivers entered the concussion protocol following last week's loss to Jacksonville but has practiced on a limited basis this week and should be ready in time for Sunday's 4:05 PM ET start. If he plays, it would extend his steak of consecutive regular season starts to 186.

Philip Rivers (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He's still in the protocol and needs to pass it to play Sunday against Buffalo.
Wed, Nov 15, 2017 03:41:00 PM

Philip Rivers is in the league's concussion protocol.

It's unclear when Rivers may have suffered the concussion against the Jaguars on Sunday, as he wasn't even sacked and was hit just one time. He did get upended on a high-low combo early on, so that may have been it. Rivers didn't get any in-game tests done. If he can't play this week against the Bills, journeyman Kellen Clemens would get the nod. The Bills would be a D/ST streamer. Rivers said over the summer that he'd never been concussed in his 13-year career.
