Hardly anyone was missing Friday morning in the final Chargers practice before the team's afternoon trip to the East Coast.
Tight end Antonio Gates, after sitting out Thursday, worked out for the third time this week and, barring a setback, will be on the field Sunday when the team faces the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. He is expected to see limited snaps.
Gates has missed the past three games with a plantar fascia injury.
Cornerback Marcus Gilchrist also return to action. He injured his knee in a fall during Wednesday's practice and didn't participate Thursday.
Both players' statuses will be updated after practice.
Only defensive Luis Castillo (tibia) was absent Friday. He is the lone Chargers player viewed as a lock not to play Sunday.
Vincent Jackson (hamstring) was on the field for the third straight day. It was the most active bodies the Chargers have had in practice since the final training camp cut in early September.Photo Credit: Getty Images
