Jets' LT says Chargers' Rivers 'seems distracted'

Posted: Updated:

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - LaDainian Tomlinson says he thinks San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers "seems distracted," and was stunned Monday night when his former teammate fumbled a snap near the end of regulation of an overtime loss to Kansas City.

Tomlinson, in his second season with the New York Jets, wouldn't speculate Thursday when asked if Rivers is struggling because he's not healthy. He said it could be the result of the pressure of being a leader: "On the sideline, he seems like he's just distracted. And I've always said this: 'It's hard to be The Guy.'"

Rivers, who has thrown an NFL-high 11 interceptions, dropped the snap against the Chiefs that cost the Chargers in a 23-20 loss. Tomlinson couldn't "believe that just happened," and had never seen Rivers do that.
