Philip Rivers said after the game that he hurt himself while throwing a block during a run by wide receiver DeMichael Harris. The injury was to his big toe and the veteran said he has never dealt with a similar injury.
Rivers didn't miss a snap last week after the injury. Head coach Frank Reich said the team “will just have to see” how Rivers feels as the week goes on. As the story said, it's a good bet Rivers will feel well enough to play against the Titans on Sunday. Rivers has started 234 straight regular season games and 245 straight games overall.
IND QB Jacoby Brissett - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacoby Brissett only had 119 yards passing last week, although he added 37 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Brissett hasn’t been a solid fantasy option for much of the season, but his limited passing numbers last week were largely due to the Colts getting up early on the Panthers and then running the ball for the rest of the game.
This is a great matchup to finish the season. The Jaguars rank 25th in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks this year and they are barely playing with a pulse right now. Brissett hasn’t been productive enough throughout the season to consider him a viable QB1 option in most leagues, but if you’re desperate for a streaming option, you could do worse than Brissett in a good matchup.
