RG3 inactive this week as No. 3 QB
The Latest from NFL stadiums around the country on the second Sunday of the season(all times EDT):
Philip Rivers hits the field to warm up in perfect conditions as he tries to extend his San Diego-record completion streak.
He completed his last 20 passes in an opening win over Detroit, a club record that’s four shy of Donovan McNabb’s NFL record from 2004.
It’s sunny, 69 degrees and breezy for a game against the Bengals.
Those with streaks longer than Rivers are: Peyton Manning, 23; Joe Montana, Mark Brunell, David Carr and Matt Ryan, 22 completions.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was inactive, just like last week, but the difference is that he was coming off a concussion for the opener, while he’s healthy enough to play against the Rams.
He lost his starting job to Kirk Cousins during the preseason; now he is down to No. 3 on the depth chart, behind backup Colt McCoy.
Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley, coming off left knee surgery, practiced this week and was thought to have a chance to make his NFL debut on Sunday, but he was inactive.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe will make his Cleveland Browns debut against the Titans.
Bowe, who missed last week’s game with a hamstring injury, should be one of the top targets for Johnny Manziel.
Cleveland signed Bowe, formerly in Kansas City, to a 2-year, $12.5 million contract – $9 million guaranteed – in the offseason.

Bills running back LeSean McCoy will play against the New England Patriots despite aggravating an injury to left hamstring in practice this week.
McCoy had been listed as questionable. He’s been bothered by the injury and missed the Bills final three preseason games after being hurt during a joint practice with the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 18. McCoy complained of being rusty after managing just 41 yards on 17 carries in Buffalo’s 27-14 season-opening win over Indianapolis last week. He also had three catches for 46 yards.
The Bills still managed a combined 147 yards rushing against Indianapolis – Buffalo’s best total since gaining 193 at Chicago in last year’s season opener.
