Chargers' Philip Rivers to evaluate his status after 2019 season

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- For now, Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers says he still wants to play football.

However, with the final year of his contract up at the end of the year, Rivers says he'll take some time once the season is over to evaluate where he's at physically and mentally to ensure that continuing to play is the right decision for himself and his family.

Rivers has said that he wants to be playing when the Chargers open SoFi Stadium -- the team's new home in Inglewood -- in 2020, and that sentiment has not changed.
