  • Rivers (ankle) said he intends to play at least two more seasons, XTRA 1360 San Diego reports. Entering the final season of a four-year contract, Rivers is expected to sign an extension at some point this summer. He skipped the Pro Bowl with an ankle injury, but it doesn't seem to be impacting his offseason routine or posing any threat to his remarkable streak of 208 consecutive starts. The 37-year-old quarterback hopes growth from Mike Williams and Hunter Henry can make up for the offseason departure of Tyrell Williams to Oakland. While few signal-callers are in a better position to succeed in real-life terms, Rivers' complete lack of rushing production limits his ceiling as a fantasy asset.

  • Chargers' Philip Rivers: Vacationing with family
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivers (ankle) is missing the start of the Chargers' voluntary offseason program to take an Easter vacation with his family, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. The reasoning behind his absence should quiet any rumors about Rivers playing hardball to create leverage for an extension. He's entering the final season of a four-year, $83.5 million contract, and GM Tom Telesco has already made it clear the Chargers want to discuss a new deal. Rivers skipped the Pro Bowl with an ankle injury, but there hasn't been any suggestion it's a serious issue that will impact his preparation for the upcoming season. The 37-year-old quarterback shouldn't have any trouble securing a larger salary from the team, assuming he'll commit to playing beyond 2019.

  • Rivers won't play in the Pro Bowl "due to injury," Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports. The news accompanied a press release from the Colts' official site regarding Andrew Luck earning a bid to the Pro Bowl as an alternate. Rivers ceded his spot on the AFC's squad, but the nature of the injury is unknown. As Fortier pointed out, Rivers appeared to be restricted at times during Sunday's divisional-round beatdown at New England, but the quarterback met with the media Monday and "looked OK." No matter what Rivers is dealing with, he hasn't missed a start since becoming the Chargers' starting signal-caller in 2006 and is on the heels of a bounce-back campaign, both statistically and team-wise.

  • Rivers completed 22 of 32 passes for 160 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the Chargers' 23-17 wild-card win over the Ravens on Sunday. He also rushed three times for 15 yards and completed a two-point conversion pass to Mike Williams. Although the final line may have been underwhelming from a fantasy perspective, it was essentially ideal given the real-life football circumstances surrounding the contest. Rivers put together a prototypical veteran game-manager effort in a considerably hostile postseason road environment, remaining free of turnovers while only taking one sack. The 37-year-old even showed off some surprising mobility at a key moment, rumbling for nine yards on a third-and-8 early in the fourth quarter. Given the difficulty of the matchup, Rivers' output has to be considered more than serviceable, especially since it led to a victorious outcome. The veteran will now look to repeat the feat in yet another difficult setting during the divisional round, as Los Angeles will travel to New England to tangle with the Patriots next Sunday.

  • Rivers completed 14 of 24 passing attempts for 176 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 23-9 win over the Broncos. Rivers found Mike WIlliams over the middle for a three-yard touchdown in the third quarter to give the Chargers a 14-3 advantage, which would be more than enough for the eventual victory. The 176 yards eclipsed the 37-year-old's season low from the previous week against the Ravens, whom the Chargers lost to at home. Now they will attempt to avenge that loss in Baltimore in the first round of the playoffs.
