Philip Rivers: Will Take a Seat Friday

Rotowire.com
Update: Rivers will not play in Friday's preseason game against the Vikings, the North County Times reports.

Recommendation: Though the third preseason game is usually used by most coaches to give extended playing time to their starters, coach Norv Turner decided it wasn't worth the risk for Rivers to be in the game with three starters on the offensive line out with injuries. Instead, Charlie Whitehurst will make the start as he stakes his claim to the top backup role.
