Gates did not catch his only target in Sunday's 31-20 win over the Bills.
Gates only played in 11 offensive snaps as the Chargers raced out to a substantial first half lead. The veteran tight end is expected to be used sparingly, but with a difficult matchup against the Rams next week, Gates could find himself on the field more as another receiving option. Yesterday 11:11 am (EST)
- Gates caught two of his three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Chiefs.
- Gates is not among the Chargers' Week 1 inactives Sunday against the Chiefs.
- Though Gates has just three days worth of practice to prepare for Sunday's season opener against the Chiefs, he hasn't ruled out playing in the contest, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports. "I've always been optimistic about playing in a game, whether I was injured or not here -- it didn't matter," Gates said. "So, I think I'm well aware of the preparation that needs to be put in throughout the week to go play a game at the highest level possible. With that being said...it just depends on how I feel leading up to Sunday." All Antonio Gates News
