News: Clemens completed 1-of-3 passes for 10 yards, after replacing Philip Rivers (hand) with two minutes left in the third quarter of Sunday's 37-0 loss at Miami.
Impact: Rivers' injury isn't considered serious, as the team simply decided it wasn't worth putting their starting quarterback into a game they were trailing by 37. The Chargers are off in Week 10, allowing Rivers extra time to heal, but if the injury turns out to be more serious than initially believed, Clemens could get the Week 11 start against the Raiders,
