Mods I searched and didn't find any related threads, but if you need to merge that's ok.
Rivers is quoted in a Dallas News article referencing RG3 to his own situation when he tore his ACL and played the following week.

Griffin's injury situation is not an isolated incident, the last high profile QB to go thru the same situation was Rivers in 07 in that he tore his ACL against the Colts the week prior
http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/22772752/ns/sports-nfl/San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers played with the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee “totally gone” during his team's 21-12 defeat to the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game Sunday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Monday
What I find most interesting in Rivers` case is that the Chargers had his knee scoped right after the Colts game and he played against the Pats days later, also this statement regarding Ladanian Tomlinson knee from the Chargers staff from the same game [from included link above]
Griffin's situation is far from an isolated event so it would appear from reading into Rivers` knee injury that Shanahan ,staff, and RG3 acted no different than any other clubs faced with the exact same scenario.Tomlinson missed Wednesday’s practice but worked out the rest of the week and wasn’t mentioned on Friday’s injury report. He hurt his left knee against the Colts, with the team saying then it was hyperextended, Tomlinson said after Sunday’s game that he has a sprained medial collateral ligament.
