Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has been cleared to play on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Rivers suffered a concussion in last week’s game.

Rivers had to pass tests done by an independent neurologist before being eligible to play. He did that on Friday, just days after suffering a concussion in a 20-17 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday.

Rivers entered the concussion protocol on Monday, November, 13th. He reportedly self-reported the symptoms to the Chargers medical staff.

On Wednesday, as the team began its preparations for the Bills this Sunday, he was limited in practice. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn told the media that Rivers would increase his reps in practice, as he progressed in the concussion protocol.

“I just let the doctors handle it,” Lynn said. “And, Philip will be brutally honest with us. I told him to be honest about this injury. He has been so far, and that’s all you can go on.”

Rivers, 35-year-old, hasn’t missed a game since taking over as the team’s starter in 2006. He took over for Drew Brees when he left, as a free agent and signed a contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Rivers will be making his 186th consecutive start on Sunday. The Chargers are 3-6 overall – but if they have any changes of turning this thing around, they need Rivers to play.

The Chargers already have the most qualified quarterback in the game. The Bills announced previously that Nathan Peterman will receive the start, as the team has decided to bench Tyrod Taylor.
