Philip Rivers speaks out on availability for matchup against the Titans
Indianapolis Colts star quarterback Philip Rivers suffered a foot injury on Sunday in a win against the Green Bay Packers, and there was some initial doubt as to whether or not the 38-year-old will be able to take the field against the Tennessee Titans for Week 12.
As it turns out, however, Rivers himself is confident that he will be available for the Colts for Sunday’s game.
Despite the fact that he has been listed on the injury report, Rivers remains adamant that he will be fit enough for Indianapolis’ upcoming matchup against the Titans:
“I feel pretty good. I think I definitely could have gone today. I think it’s a little bit of – probably the smart thing to do, then me getting better at my stubbornness as well,” Rivers told reporters Wednesday. “I think it’s the best approach. Obviously, with our schedule this week, having tomorrow off for Thanksgiving, just a couple more days of rest and be ready to be out there on Friday.”
Rivers finished the Colts’ Week 11 win with 24-of-36 completed passes for 288 yards, to go along with two touchdowns and one interception.
Sunday’s victory was Indianapolis’ fourth win in their past five games, as they have now improved to 7-3 on the season. They are currently sitting at the top spot in the AFC South, but interestingly, are tied with none other than the Titans. Sunday’s key matchup will lift the winner to solo first-place position, and of course, will own bragging rights in this division rivalry.
