QB Philip Rivers doesn't practice Wednesday-- Wed Dec 17 7:16 pm --
Mathews remains out with ankle injury
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers didn't practice Wednesday, although he participated in a morning walkthrough and said he expects to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night when the Chargers try to keep alive their playoff hopes.
"At this point in the week I have no doubt" about playing against the 49ers, Rivers said. The quarterback is listed as having chest and back injuries, although the team hasn't said what the specific injuries are. Also Wednesday, running back Ryan Mathews missed another day of practice.
FF Today's Take:Fantasy owners should not be too worried about Rivers' playing status this weekend. The Chargers are facing a team that may not come to play too hard in San Francisco, however they will be without WR Keenan Allen (neck, ankle) and Ryan Mathews (ankle) doesn't look promising either.
Keenan Allen out Week 16, broken collarbone-- Tue Dec 16 1:15 pm --
Also suffered ankle injury

FF Today's Take:A disappointing season for Allen is coming to an end. Eddie Royal and Malcom Floyd will move into starting roles this week against the 49ers defense that's allowed the fifth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers.
