Will Antonio Gates play sunday?

Postby ProfileNotFound » Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:49 pm

Do you guys think Antonio Gates will start this sunday against the Titans or do you think his rib injury will keep him out of the game? The only other option I have at TE right now is Dennis Pitta. What do you guys think?

Antonio Gates (questionable, ribs) returned to Chargers practice Friday, albeit on a limited basis.
Gates got two days off after banging his ribs in the second game of Monday night's double-dip. He returned to the contest and should be fine to start against the Titans. Mike Clay and Chris Wesseling have Gates as the No. 5 tight end. Sep 14 - 2:41 PM

Gates reminds me of my two favorite movies. Forest Gump "Life is like a box of chocolates." and Ground Hog Day, same thing over and over every year.

Chargers declared TE Antonio Gates (ribs) inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.


LATEST NEWS
RECENT NEWS
Chargers declared TE Antonio Gates (ribs) inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.
It's a major surprise. Without Gates and Ryan Mathews (collarbone), the Chargers' offense is handcuffed. Randy McMichael will start at tight end, but he's a weak play for fantasy owners. In the four games that Gates missed last year, McMichael averaged just 3.0 catches for 27.7 yards with no touchdowns. The other Chargers' inactives: OT Jared Gaither, NT Antonio Garay, LB Jonas Mouton, DB Brandon Taylor and DB Shareece Wright. Sep 16 - 2:58 PM

What sucks is the Chargers don't have a productive back up. McMichael is good for maybe 3 points.

So what do you guys think about week 3? Will Gates be back up and runnning? I have Dennis Pitta on the bench but I could also get Mercedes Lewis out of free agency.

Coach Norv Turner said Antonio Gates (ribs) was "moving fast" and "looked good" during a limited practice Wednesday.The Chargers are monitoring how Gates' body responds to Wednesday's activity. For now, it appears safe to pencil him into Week 3 lineups. Gates nearly played in Week 2 before being scratched at the last minute
