Antonio Gates Foot Injury Becoming A Real Concern?

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune reports that Chargers TE Antonio Gates was held out of practice again on Thursday because of a foot injury that he has been dealing with. Acee thinks that RB Mike Tolbert has a better shot at playing in week 3 than Gates does.

Eli Kaberon of Pro Football Weekly reported last week that a team insider informed him that Antonio Gates “can rule out ever being 100 percent healthy for the rest of his career, as a nagging toe injury has taken away some of his speed and athleticism.”

Last weekend Gates was unable to get any amount of separation which ultimately led to him catching zero passes. If his foot continues to hamper his ability, the Chargers are going to have to look to their other players more. This is something to monitor in the coming weeks if you happen to own him in your fantasy leagues.
