Chargers QB Rivers still in concussion protocol, will practice Wednesday on limited basis

On Monday, Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn announced quarterback Philip Rivers was in concussion protocol.

And while Lynn didn't have a specific update on Rivers Wednesday, he said the following on a conference call with the Buffalo media:

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport added more regarding the optimism about Rivers' chances to play on Sunday in a tweet sent before Lynn's conference call on Wednesday morning:

Rivers hasn't missed a regular-season game since being named the Chargers starter in 2006. It's believed he suffered a concussion while making a tackle after his fourth-quarter interception against the Jaguars a week ago.

If Rivers can't go, Kellen Clemens will get the start for Los Angeles.

Rivers owns the 19th-best passer rating among qualifying quarterbacks (87.1), and the 21st-best yards-per-attempt average (7.01).
