Report: Gates out for Chargers on Sunday
Tight end Antonio Gates will not play for the San Diego Chargers this Sunday when they host the winless Kansas City Chiefs.
ProFootballTalk.com, citing a source, says Gates, who is listed as questionable on the injury report, has not practiced all week with a foot injury. Gates missed six games in 2010 due to injury.
As a general rule around the NFL, players who do not practice all week are usually a no-go on Sundays, although Gates has certainly earned enough clout that if he were healthy, he could play without practice.
