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. Reserve Dante Rosario, who hadn't recorded a touchdown catch since 2009, when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers, was on the receiving end of a career-high three as the Chargers earned a 38-10 victory over Tennessee on Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. Rosario made the most of his opportunity after the Chargers decided to sit Gates, who had spent the week nursing sore ribs. Rivers connected with Rosario, who spent last season with the Dolphins, for a pair of first-quarter touchdowns to give the Chargers an early lead they would never relinquish. The two hooked up on an 11-yard scoring pass on the Chargers' opening drive, capping a 12-play, 71-yard march for a 7-0 lead with 6:08 left in the quarter. It took only two plays for the Titans to turn the ball back over to the Chargers as free safety Eric Weddle picked o...

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.
Owning Antonio Gates in fantasy means you'll be an expert on the Q/D that shows next to his name all year long. I drafted Gates in the sixth round, so I don't have a huge investment in him. Plus I drafted Fleener as a TE handcuff.Now on to yesterday. Here is a timeline of how Gates' impact transpired:8:00a - Initial check/review of lineup. Proceed to watch pregames...

SAN DIEGO -- Reserve tight end Dante Rosario had never caught more than two touchdown passes in a season during his previous five in the NFL. On Sunday, he surpassed that mark by becoming a focal point of the Chargers' offense. Rosario, who hadn't recorded a touchdown catch since 2009 when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers, was on the receiving end of a career-high...
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...
