Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has been placed in the league’s concussion protocol today.
Although Rivers played the entire game on Sunday with no indication of a concussion, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn announced today that Rivers is in the concussion protocol now.
It’s unclear when Rivers suffered a concussion. He threw 37 passes in Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars and was not sacked.
Rivers is one of the most durable players in NFL history. He hasn’t missed a game since becoming the Chargers’ starter in 2006, a streak of 185 consecutive regular season games.
