Should key San Diego Chargers players sit out last two games?

Two games left.  Two games that will end this miserable season.  Two games that mean nothing.  With that in mind, should key players like Philip Rivers, Ronnie Brown and Antonio Gates be gearing up to head out to the field?  Should Vincent Brown be rushing back in from his injury?

If Rivers starts on Sunday he will be tied for fifth with Tom Brady on the list of most consecutive regular season starts by a quarterback in NFLhistory. This will be Rivers 111th consecutive start in the regular season and his 118th overall if you add in playoffs.

But when the playoffs are no longer on the line and there are backups available should San Diego risk a potential injury for the sake of maybe winning a game?

I think they should not play unless absolutely needed.  What do you think?
