I’ve never met the guy, but I’m having one of those “kill the messenger” moments as I read Ian Rapoport’s tweet in regards to Chargers QB Philip Rivers.
#Chargers QB Philip Rivers is in the concussion protocol after coming into the facility today and self-reporting symptoms. Kellen Clemens is the backup if he can’t go.

I don’t remember any “HUGE HIT” on Rivers from this past weekends OT loss. I do know that River’s is a warrior and as he “self-reported” I am pretty certain Mrs. Rivers had a hand in this. Good for her!
Head injuries have been shrugged off ever since I can remember being given the “he-man” treatment. Bad moves. They are for real. The short and long term dangers are for real.
I feel certain it took a LOT of pain, dizziness or whatever other symptoms River’s was feeling for him to self-report. All of us here at STL send our best and hope for a speedy, and full recovery.
Kellen Clemons is next man up.
