Philip Rivers still in concussion protocol, but Anthony Lynn thinks veteran QB will play vs. Bills

Philip Rivers will spend another day in concussion protocol and as a limited participant in practice, but his head coach Anthony Lynn believes the quarterback will play against the Bills on Sunday, per Eric Williams of ESPN.

Here's Lynn's full quote, via Williams, which included a caveat regarding the signal-callers availability:

"We think he'll play, but that's up to the doctors."

Williams pointed out that the Chargers will have a fully-padded practice today.

At this point, it seems as though Rivers is headed for a "questionable" designation, which certainly will leave his status up in the air heading into the weekend, a somewhat unusual situation for a starting quarterback.

The more time that passes with Rivers staying in the concussion protocol, the less chance he'll have to play when the Chargers host the Bills in Week 11.
