Pittsburgh Steelers to defend Colts’ Philip Rivers with ‘pretty severe’ turf toe
Philip Rivers has done what no franchise quarterback would ever want to do - teams have jumped in the last few years of his career.
In the same 2004 NFL draft class as Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Rivers spent 16 seasons with the Chargers before signing with the Colts in the free agency that off-season.
The 38-year-old has been more than reliable for the Colts this season. He's completed 68.67 percent of his passes for 3,735 yards, 22 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.
Tomorrow the Steelers will defend against less than 100 percent rivers. He suffered a lawn toe injury in week 11 but has not missed a game.
"I can't get him to talk to me about it," said Colt's head coach Frank Reich on Sirius XM NFL radio about his injury. "But I've talked to the coaches and he's still not 100 percent, but he's getting better every week."
“It was a major toe injury. The graduation was pretty strict. He fought it really hard. We are now at the stage where we will hopefully continue this upward trend. "
Despite the severe injury that often incapacitates a player for weeks, you expect Rivers - and the Colts - to cause trouble for Pittsburgh. In contrast to the Steelers, the Colts have not yet occupied a playoff place. You need a win in Pittsburgh to secure a place in the playoffs with the help of a Ravens or Dolphins loss.
