If it were another player, perhaps he'd sit with the injury, but Rivers has shown the willingness and ability to play through just about any predicament, including the famed ACL tear in 2008.

Rivers added that the rest at this point outweighed the importance of practicing.
"I hate not practicing," he said. "But I think at some point you have to do what's best for me and the team. And practicing today wouldn't have been beneficial to moving toward Saturday."
