Philip Rivers returns to practice, has perfect day

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Philip Rivers was back at practice Thursday, and by all accounts it was a perfect one.

The San Diego Chargers quarterback returned a day after sitting out practice in order to rest chest and back injuries. He expects to play at San Francisco on Saturday night, when the Chargers (8-6) hope to keep their playoff chances alive.

Says coach Mike McCoy: "Philip had an outstanding day. The ball did not hit the ground today in all the throws he made."

Says Rivers: "We hit them all today."

The Chargers had been in control of their wild-card destiny, before home losses to New England and Denver. Now they need to win out and get some help from other teams.
