You can’t watch a Chargers game without hearing “Antonio Gates was a basketball player in college, which helps him come down with passes like a rebound” or “Gates boxed out the defender their as he came down with the ball.” Now, he has his b-ball jersey retired and years from now the Chargers will be retiring his football jersey too.

San Diego tight end Antonio Gates is inactive for Sunday's game against Tennessee.Fantasy Spin:This one is a shocker. Gates was listed as questionable with a rib injury but we thought he'd be able to tough this one out. Get him out of your starting lineup ASAP.

Gates has a rib injury and Mathews hasn't played since breaking his collarbone on his first carry of the exhibition opener on Aug. 9. Also inactive for the second straight game is Jared Gaither, out with back spasms since July 28...
The San Diego Chargers got a good game from quarterback Philip Rivers. The Oakland Raiders got a good lesson in the importance of a competent long snapper. In the Chargers’ 22-14 victory over the Raiders on Monday night in Oakland, Rivers (who completed 24 of 33 passes for 231 yards) was accurate and efficient and everything [...]
Chargers running back Ryan Mathews and tight end Antonio Gates are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.
Mathews sustained a broken clavicle in the opening quarter of San Diego's first preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. Gates missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a rib injury, but returned Friday on a limited basis.
The Chargers are one of the most banged up teams in the league right now. Last week against the Raiders, they had to start an undrafted free agent at left tackle on an already weak offensive line because Jared Gaither is out indefinitely with back spasms. They were also without Vincent Brown, their top receiver in Training Camp, and Philip Rivers never looked comfortable throwing...

SAN DIEGO -- With an injured Antonio Gates sitting out the contest, quarterback Philip Rivers found a new target at tight end to fill the void.
