Right ACL of San Diego QB Rivers ‘Totally Gone’

Playing with a hurt knee during Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, Philip Rivers showed he had a lot of guts. But what the Chargers QB didn’t have was a working ACL.

The SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE scopes out news that the anterior cruciate ligament in the San Diego signal caller’s right knee is “totally gone,” and he’ll have to undergo reconstructive surgery. Although his recovery time is unknown, the Chargers QB expects to be 100% healthy before the start of next season.

Rivers played the entire game with a missing ACL, but didn’t come clean about his true injury until Monday, earlier saying it was just a ’sprained MCL’.

Well, if Bill Belichick can be so secretive about his players’ bumps and bruises, why not San Diego?
