Rivers cleared from concussion, will play vs. Bills
Jake Roth / USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has been cleared to play against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday by an independent neurological consultant after suffering a concussion last week, the team announced Friday.

Head coach Anthony Lynn said earlier in the week that he was hopeful Rivers would play, but he had still needed to be medically cleared.

Rivers had been officially deemed questionable after Friday's practice, which was the second straight day he was able to participate fully.

The veteran quarterback was diagnosed with a concussion Monday after reporting symptoms, though it appeared he suffered the injury on his final play of the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars attempting to make a tackle on an interception return.

Rivers has started every game since the beginning of the 2006 season, making Sunday's contest his 195th consecutive start.
