SAN DIEGO - Quarterback Philip Rivers isnt sure if hes going to need surgery on his ailing back now that the Chargers season is over. J.J. Watt Texans Jersey .I cant rule it out but its too early to know, Rivers said Monday, a day after the Chargers season ended with a 19-7 loss at Kansas City.A victory would have clinched a wild-card spot for the Bolts. Instead, Rivers was sacked seven times, was intercepted twice and lost a fumble as the Chiefs overwhelmed the Chargers line.Rivers had been listed on the injury report in recent weeks as having chest and back injuries.Reports surfaced that Rivers had a bulging disc in his lower back.Asked to confirm or deny it, he said: I just dont think theres any reason to confirm it. Cant deny it, but its not exactly accurate.Rivers said talking about his injuries does no good. Its self-serving, really, to tell you anything, because then its like, Oh, well thats why this and that happened. My injuries had nothing to do with whether I threw it good or threw it bad.Rivers was intercepted seven times in the final three games. He finished the season with 4,286 yards, 31 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.The Chargers lost three of their last four games, and will miss the playoffs for the fourth time in five years.Coach Mike McCoy, who failed to replicate the job he did in getting the Chargers to the playoffs as a rookie head coach in 2013, refused to divulge more information about Rivers injury.McCoy didnt have many answers for why the Chargers flopped when they controlled their own destiny to grab a playoff berth.I think we had a lot of confidence going in in our plans and what we were going to do and we just didnt play well enough to win in all three phases, he said. I think they were ready and ready to go.Asked what blame the coaching staff should take, McCoy said: Were all in it together. Its not the coaches, its not just the players, its all of us. Everything we do, were one. Were a football team, were an organization. Were going to back each other. Its not just one phase, its not just one coach. It all starts with me as the head coach and we didnt play well enough to win, so give me all the blame for it. Thats fine.McCoy, who is from the San Francisco Bay Area, was asked if hes interested in the 49ers vacancy after Jim Harbaughs mutual agreement with the team to part ways.Im very happy with where Im at. I love my job, McCoy said.___Follow Bernie Wilson on Twitter at http://twitter.com/berniewilson___Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Whitney Mercilus Texans Jersey .S. on June 21 in Sacramento, Calif., as part of the IRB Pacific Nations Cup.

Bass had 17 points, seven rebounds and two key blocks and the Celtics surged past the Atlanta Hawks 94-87. "Hes had a tough week," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "We took him out of the starting lineup. Tonight, we put him back in and he responded. He anchored our defence, especially in the fourth quarter." The Celtics, who had lost six straight, entered the fourth quarter trailing 74-64. But a strong defensive effort resulted in a stretch of 11 straight scoreless possessions for the Hawks at one point and just 13 points for Atlanta in the final quarter. "We have to be great defensively for us to have any success," Bass said. "We do not have All-Stars at the offensive end where we dont need to play defence. Everybody has to be on point on both sides of the ball for us to get wins." Al Horford led the Hawks with 18 points and seven rebounds, and Jeff Teague had 13 points and 10 assists. Atlanta had won four of five games before losing for just the second time this season at home.

Jordan Crawford scored five points during the run, "When we were down, I was kind of the reason," said Crawford, who scored 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter. "I was the only one kind of struggling on offence, trying to find my shot. So I just wanted to make the effort to try to get to the hole, try to make a couple plays." The Hawks broke open a tight game by closing out the third quarter with a 17-5 run that gave them a 74-64 lead. Included in that run was a flagrant foul on Jared Sullinger that resulted in a three-point trip for the Hawks. Teague had six points and an assist to spark the Hawks, while the Celttics floundered on offence, missing six of their final seven field goal attempts in the quarter. Arian Foster Jersey.

Early in the fourth, however, the Celtics put together a 10-0 run to make it a one-point game with 5:28 to play. "It has really been quite a stretch (schedule-wise)," Stevens said. "(The Hawks) missed a few shots they normally make, and we played really well in the fourth quarter. If we dont have all hands on deck, its not pretty. We had all hands on deck tonight." The Celtics outrebounded the Hawks 47-38 and held the Hawks to 38.7 per cent shooting. "We showed great resolve," Bass said. "When things got tough, we stuck together. The losing streak was wearing on us. It was a great time to get a win." Avery Bradley had 12 points and five rebounds for the Celtics and limited Hawks Kyle Korver to just nine points. Vitor Faverani chipped in 11 points off the bench. "We need to get to the free throw line," said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, whose team was outshot 31-12 at the line. "Its a tough lesson to learn. Its a tough way to learn it. For three quarters, we were efficient and we were good. But we werent able to bring it home in the fourth quarter."
