Game day update: Multiple reports indicate Rivers looked good on Friday after missing two days of practice. Frank Reich told Tom Pelissero, “it doesn’t look like Rivers’ injured toe will be an issue” against the Titans.

Uh oh, you may have noticed Philip Rivers on the Week 12 injury report. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback is dealing with a bum toe that kept him out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday. But not to worry; he’ll extend his starting streak to 239 games this week against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy impact: Philip Rivers (Ankle)

Rivers was back at practice on Friday, working on a limited basis. And head coach Frank Reich said this week that Rivers said that Rivers is on track to play. The question now is whether or not he should be in your starting lineup for fantasy football.

The Colts last saw the Titans two weeks ago, back in Week 10. In that one, a 34-17 win, Rivers threw for 308 yards and one touchdown. In 10 career starts against Tennessee, Rivers has 18 touchdowns and four picks. And he’s coming into this one on something of a hot streak, having thrown three scores last week against the Packers.
