Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates will be sporting baseball caps on the sideline taking mental reps of the game. They will stay away from harm while Charlie Whitehurst plays stunt double getting the start.

Think there is no reason to watch the game because Philip and Gates are out? Don’t you want to see Jurassic Melvin Ingram chase after quarterbacks? The defense will be one of the things to keep and eye on and we also want to see Robert Meachem get in a rhythm.
