SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was a limited participant in practice Monday, two days after heading into the locker room early after hitting his throwing hand on a defender late in the second quarter of the Chargers' preseason game against the Seahawks.

Rivers handed off a few times during the portion of the workout open to the media but didn't throw in positional drills. Kellen Clemens was at quarterback in Monday's practice.

Coach Mike McCoy said Rivers' limited participation wasn't because he hit his right hand Saturday.

Rivers had his hand X-rayed Saturday and said after the game that the X-rays came back negative.
