Chargers' Philip Rivers: Vacationing with family
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 general manager 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.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Could get extension soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Tom Telesco said the Chargers want to discuss a contract extension with Rivers (ankle), Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

The 37-year-old quarterback has already stated his intention to play beyond 2019, the final season of his four-year, $83.5 million extension. He finished top 10 in the NFL for nearly every major passing category in 2018, leading the Chargers back to the playoffs for the first time since 2013. With the core of the team under contract for at least one more season, Rivers likely envisions a deeper playoff run in 2019. He'll miss the Pro Bowl with an ankle injury, though it's probably just an excuse to skip a game he's already taken part in plenty of times.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Missing Pro Bowl with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Inaccurate in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers completed 25 of 51 passes for 331 yards, three touchdowns and an interception, along with a two-point conversion in Sunday's 41-28 Divisional Round loss to New England.

Gillette Stadium has been a house of horrors for Rivers throughout his career, and this game was no exception. His day got off to a promising start with a 43-yard touchdown to Keenan Allen on Los Angeles' first drive, but Rivers didn't produce another touchdown until there was 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter. He padded his stats from that point on with a one-yard touchdown pass to Virgil Green, a two-point conversion to Allen and an eight-yard score to Antonio Gates, but the veteran quarterback certainly wasn't at his sharpest considering he ultimately completed fewer than half of his passes. There's a potential out in Rivers' contract after this season, but it's hard to imagine the Chargers parting ways with their franchise quarterback despite the sour taste of this most recent postseason exit. Rivers was productive during the regular season with 4,308 passing yards and a 32:12 touchdown to interception ratio.

Chargers' Philip Rivers: Free of mistakes in wild-card win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 an ideal one 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 3rd-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.
