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 three as the San Diego Chargers rolled to a 38-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium. A reserve player who spent last season with the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos, Rosario made the most of his opportunity after the Chargers decided to sit Gates, who had spent the week nursing sore ribs. "I always prepare like it's going to be a big week, but Gates was kind of a last-second decision on whether or not he was going to play, so it wasn't a sure thing I was going to take the number of reps that I ended up taking," Rosario said. He gave much of the credi...

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...
Dante Rosario made the most of Antonio Gates' absence. The tight end had three touchdown catches for the first time in his NFL career and San Diego's defense harassed Jake Locker all afternoon as the Chargers beat the Tennessee Titans for the ninth straight time, 38-10 Sunday.
Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley is starting Sunday's game in favor of Ronnie Brown.Fantasy Spin:Brown is on his last legs. Brinkley handled more carries than the veteran in Week 1 but neither did much against the Raiders. Oakland is getting shredded by Reggie Bush Sunday so it's more likely Brown and Brinkley just aren't very good. Only start Brinkley if you're desperate.
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 -- With an injured Antonio Gates sitting out the contest, quarterback Philip Rivers found a new target at tight end to fill the void.

As I'm sure you've discovered by now, I was generally satisfied with what I saw on Monday Night in Oakland. There is a lot to improve upon, but the biggest thing is that I never felt like the Chargers would inevitably make an asinine play and lose. That speaks volumes after what we all suffered through last season. When we were 4-1, we all vented about how the team...
Yesterday's game against the San Diego Chargers was really ugly, but it wasn't without a few bright spots. My post-game recap was pretty gloomy, so now it's time for a few reasons for optimism.
Jake Locker's mobility was evident again on a big scramble to convert third down. That play also drew a stupid personal foul penalty and sparked a scoring drive...
Well, this one didn't start pretty and it didn't end pretty. The Chargers took the opening kickoff for a touchdown, then scored on their second possession on a short field after an ugly Jake Locker overthrown interception. A three-and-out later, the Chargers were up 17-0 and it was a long day for the Tennessee Titans in their first regular season visit to San Diego since...
