Rivers practices, downplays back, chest injuries
Rivers said others in the locker room are feeling more pain than he is and then added: ''I have nothing right now hurting at all.''
Rivers declined to confirm or deny reports he has a bulging disc in his back. He's been listed on the injury report as having back and chest injuries.
Rivers sat out two practices last week and then led a dramatic comeback in a 38-35 overtime victory at San Francisco on Saturday night.
The Chargers (9-6) need to win at Kansas City on Sunday to clinch a wild-card berth.
