San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers is active for Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs despite dealing with a foot injury and an illness.
Rivers was limited in practice on Wednesday with the foot problem, but was a full participant the rest of the week. He fell ill on Saturday and is expected to be healthy enough to play through it, but there is enough concern in the organization that Brad Sorenson was signed off the practice squad, reports Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
According to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports, Rivers is still dealing with the side effects of the illness.
Rivers has never missed a game since being name the Chargers’ starter in 2006, playing in 156 consecutive games.
Despite the struggles of his team—San Diego has posted a 3–9 record through Week 13—Rivers is on pace to have his third-straight 400-yard passing season.
Through 12 games, Rivers has racked up 3713 yards, 23 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
