Colts QB Rivers misses practice with toe injury
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers will not practice Wednesday due to a toe injury.
Colts coach Frank Reich said before the team’s workout that Rivers could have practiced, but the team went the cautious route. By sitting Rivers on Wednesday he gets two days off, since there’s no practice on Thanksgiving Day.
“We’re going to play it safe,” Reich said.
Rivers, 38, has a streak of 234 consecutive regular season starts. If he would suffer a setback and miss Sunday’s game against the visiting Tennessee Titans (7-3), the Colts (7-3) would turn to 2019 starter Jacoby Brissett.
Rivers has completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 2,683 yards with 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 10 starts this season.
