TE Antonio Gates was in pain after a limited role in practice on Thursday.  Gates is still trying to recover from a torn plantar fascia in his right foot which has caused him to miss his 2 previous games.  Gates said, ““I wanted to see how I would respond to defenders being in the way and making unexpected cuts in the flow of a route.” He continued with, “Everything has been controlled to this point. I didn’t finish, but I’m incredibly sore.” The only optimism is his desire to play he said, “The soreness is going to be there, and I have to deal with it.” For Gates owners its looking like a 70% chance he plays.  We will continue to monitor his status leading up to his game this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts.  If Gates returns, expect big things out of the Chargers.  On the season, Gates has recorded 40 catches for 663 yards and nine touchdowns.
