SAN DIEGO (AP) -Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has a sprained ligament in his right knee and is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC championship game against the undefeated New England Patriots.
Rivers injured his medial collateral ligament when he landed awkwardly after completing a 56-yard screen pass to Darren Sproles for a touchdown on the final play of the third quarter in Sunday's 28-24 upset of Indianapolis.
Coach Norv Turner compared Rivers' situation with that of tight end Antonio Gates, who dislocated his left big toe in a wild-card win over Tennessee, sat out practice all week and then played against the Colts.
``Right now it's probably questionable in terms of playing in the game, but he's got a chance,'' Turner said Monday. ``That will be a day-to-day thing and we'll monitor it as the week goes on.''
Billy Volek took over and led the go-ahead drive, scoring the winning touchdown on a 1-yard sneak.
Two-time NFL rushing champion LaDainian Tomlinson sat out the second half with an injured left knee but said he expects to play.
