  Chargers | Philip Rivers ready for Saturday    Thu Dec 18, 11:20 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) looked good throwing the ball in the practice Thursday, Dec. 18, according to head coach Mike McCoy. 'Philip had an outstanding day,' McCoy said. 'A ball did not hit the ground in all the throws he made today. Philip was Philip, so he'll be ready to roll.'

  Chargers | Philip Rivers practices in full    Thu Dec 18, 03:41 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: We don't love Rivers' prospects this week against San Francisco, and see him as a low-end QB2. Injury certainly has sapped his ability, but this season has been disappointing given how well he played in 2013.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews sits out    Thu Dec 18, 03:35 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: We don't expect Mathews to play this weekend, and see Branden Oliver as the main back here. It's a tough matchup as well, so we're not especially excited about Oliver either, and see him as a high-end RB4.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen does not practice    Thu Dec 18, 03:25 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: We don't expect him to play this week, and Allen has been inconsistent this year anyway. If he manages to get out there on the field, we wouldn't have him in our lineups as more than a WR5. Again though, he is likely to not be playing.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers practicing    Thu Dec 18, 01:48 PM

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Unfortunately, Rivers is looking less like the guy who we were excited by last season and more like he was working under Norv Turner again. For the record, that's not good. As that's the case, he's a low-end QB2 and a shaky start against San Francisco this week.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers has legit back injury    Thu Dec 18, 09:17 AM

Updating previous reports, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back) is battling a back injury that is more severe than the team has acknowledged, according to a league source. Rivers' back injury was quietly added to San Diego's injury report last week, to go along with the rib injury he has been battling for weeks. By now, Rivers' rib injuries are improved, making his back injury the significant issue, a league source said.

Footballguys view: Well, he's been hit often enough to warrant a 'legit' back injury. Legit or not, the back injury and matchup (San Francisco) make us a bit leery this week. Rivers is a decent QB2, but keep an eye on the news and his practice over the next few days.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers says he's playing    Wed Dec 17, 05:56 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (chest, back) took part in a walkthrough Wednesday, Dec. 17, but didn't take part in practice, but he fully expects to play in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'At this point in the week I think there's no doubt,' Rivers said. TE Antonio Gates said Rivers has been dealing with a 'very severe rib injury' in mid-November. Rivers has started 142 straight games, and he thinks sitting out practice this week will help him play this weekend.

Footballguys view: Rivers may play, but you're not starting him. He just hasn't played well in recent weeks, and now he's probably playing without top target Keenan Allen (collarbone) in Week 16.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen not practicing    Wed Dec 17, 05:18 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle, shoulder) is not taking part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Allen considers himself day-to-day with these injuries. He could be shut down for the year, he could play in Week 17....but it's not likely that he plays in Week 16.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews sitting out    Wed Dec 17, 02:30 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have a short week as they play the 49ers on Saturday. It's not a good sign that Mathews has missed the last two days of practice. He missed the Broncos game in Week 15, and he could miss this week as well. Check back to see if he can practice on Thursday or Friday.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen not conceding season    Wed Dec 17, 10:47 AM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone, ankle) said he is taking his injuries 'week to week.'

Footballguys view: Yeah, that's great and all, but there's a chance we may not see Allen the rest of the year. The Chargers need to be cautious with their young receiver. In the meantime, fantasy owners should make other plans as Allen is doubtful to play in Week 16.

The San Diego Chargers promoted CB Greg Ducre from the practice squad to the active roster Tuesday, Dec. 16.


  Chargers | Philip Rivers good to go    Tue Dec 16, 04:37 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers (back, chest) said he's in good health and ready to play against the San Francisco 49ers this week.

Footballguys view: The Chargers will need Rivers to lead the way. The offense has gone off track over the last two weeks, and they'll now be playing without WR Keenan Allen (collarbone). Mike McCoy needs to be more aggressive offensively if the Chargers are going to fight their way back into the playoff picture.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers struggling of late    Tue Dec 16, 04:30 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers has completed 66.8 percent of his passes for 1,426 yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions for a passer rating of 81.2 in the last six games. In the first eight weeks of the season, he had a 68.3 completion rate for 2,213 yards, 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Rivers said the team has been playing much better defenses lately, and his receivers haven't gotten separation as often.

Footballguys view: He also hasn't moved around well in the pocket with chest and back injuries taking their toll. Rivers says he's healthy and good to go now. If that's the case, we'd like to see a more aggressive approach on offense. They're not going to get much (if anything) from their running game, so Rivers will have to lead the way.

  Chargers | Seyi Ajirotutu to play more?    Tue Dec 16, 04:28 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Seyi Ajirotutu played in a season-high 41 offensive snaps out of 66 snaps in Week 15 after WR Keenan Allen (collarbone, ankle) was injured.

Footballguys view: Ajirotutu is a decent player, but he's not at the level that Allen is. It's a downgrade in talent for sure, and the Chargers might struggle without Allen for the rest of the year.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen could be placed on IR    Tue Dec 16, 04:03 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone) could be placed on Reserve/Injured if the team is eliminated from playoff contention. Allen will not play this week against the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Allen's injury is going to keep him out this week at least. We feel this could be it for Allen in 2014. The Chargers should be cautious with their young star. Bringing him back before he's ready could end up backfiring. There's no need to risk a re-aggravation of the injury.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews doesn't practice    Tue Dec 16, 02:38 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 16.

Footballguys view: Mathews missed the game against the Broncos in Week 15, and the offense struggled without him. We'll see if he can get back in action this week. The Chargers could certainly use him.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen has broken collarbone    Tue Dec 16, 02:32 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (collarbone) suffered a broken collarbone in Week 15 and is not expected to play this week.

Footballguys view: Surgery is not planned at this point and he is not expected to go on Reserve/Injured. The Chargers offense gets a huge blow here. Without Allen, we'll see more targets for guys like Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen in protective boot    Sun Dec 14, 08:02 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) was in a protective boot after the Week 15 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: Allen might have trouble getting ready in time for next week's game against San Francisco because it's on a Saturday, The 49ers defense stiffened up today at Seattle, but they could go slack now that they are eliminated from the playoffs.

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (ankle) was carted off the field in the third quarter of the Week 15 game against the Denver Broncos due to an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Allen and the Chargers pass offense has been quiet for two weeks now, and they face the rejuvenated 49ers defense next week, so they may not be of much help to us from here on out, even if Allen can play next week.

Footballguys view: Branden Oliver and Donald Brown will split the work in the backfield with neither being a great play because of the Broncos stout run defense. Green being out will help Antonio Gates get an extra target or two.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews unlikely for Week 15    Sun Dec 14, 10:05 AM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) is 'highly doubtful' to play Sunday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Neither of Donald Brown or Branden Oliver makes for a good play in his absence. Brown could have a nice PPR day if the Chargers are forced to play a lot of catch-up, pass first football.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews fine to play?    Fri Dec 12, 05:43 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle), who hasn't practiced all week and is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Denver Broncos, could still be part of the game plan Sunday, Dec. 14, according to head coach Mike McCoy. "He'll be fine," McCoy said. "He's played plenty of football in his career, and he knows what to do. He's been here. He's been in the system for the two years we've been here together, so he'll be fine." RB Branden Oliver handled the bulk of the work when Mathews missed seven games this year, but since, he's had just 144 yards in six games.

Footballguys view: Mathews not being able to practice indicates otherwise. The game is a late starter, so you'll need one of the Chargers backs, or someone like Darren Sproles or Pierre Thomas from a night game to hedge.

  Chargers | Donald Brown receives praise    Fri Dec 12, 05:14 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown received praise from offensive coordinator Frank Reich, and the team thinks Brown remains capable of explosive plays despite a 2.3-yard-per-carry average this year. 'Donald's been what we wanted him to be,' Reich said. 'He's a very smart player. He hasn't had to carry the load running the ball. But for the role that we've played him in, he's played smart; he gets the job done. I think he grades out high week in and week out. I just think he's an excellent player who's a great team player and makes us better as whole offense.'

Footballguys view: The Chargers are a bit shaky right now, but Rivers can put up some good points, and San Diego is going to probably be trailing Denver enough to where he will get some nice yardage totals. He's a low-end QB1 but definitely worth a start.
